Halloween Chuckles

Well, since I haven't quite finished Anna's costume yet, and I don't have any pictures of it to post. I thought I'd just fill today's space with one of my favorite Halloween stories. It happened, I think, 2 years ago, and it goes a little something like this:
A little boy (maybe 4) and his Mom ring the bell. I answer to an oh so handsome smiling face, and after we chat about his costume for a bit, I reach into my bowl to get him some candy. Now I always try to have a mix of chocolate and non-chocolate 'cause I know different people like different stuff. Since this kid was so cute I decided to give him one of each, so I pulled out something chocolate and a "fun" size bag of skittles. I tossed them in his bucket, and he sort of just froze. His Mom whispers, "Say, 'Thank you'." He leans over to her and, in a whisper I'm sure he thought I couldn't hear, replies, "But Mom, I don't like Skittles!" His mom, of course, turned bright red, but I thought it was hilarious. I totally let him give back the Skittles and pick out what he wanted. He was so excited to get to pick, I got a genuine "thank you" that time.
I love Halloween! Don't you? Can't wait to see what good stories I get this year. I'm sure I'll get a few with Anna on the loose!
