So the drawback to Halloween is the candy. I know. You think I’m crazy. But hear me out. Halloween is fantastic for dressing up as an alter ego or what have you, but then on Nov. 1? ALL the candy goes on sale! And also people bring that stuff to work and it is EVERYWHERE. And next thing you know, you’ve eaten your body weight in fun-size candy bars, had a ridiculous sugar rush, crash, crazy ass dreams and then a sugar hangover.
Seriously. Crazy. Ass. Dreams. Like this one I posted on my girlfriend’s Facebook page after Halloween:
Had a dream last night in which you and I went to the Y to hang out with Kate? I think It was Kate. We were by the pool (which looked unlike any YMCA pool I’ve ever been to, but more like a Vegas hotel pool) which was indoors, but everyone was there laying out. By the indoor pool. Anyway, you decided that while we were there, you were going to take a shower, so you undressed, asked me to hand you your shampoo & soap (Imagine the “drink me” bottle in Alice in Wonderland, but full of shampoo and conditioner. And also 2 of them.), and then walked over to a refrigerator, got inside and took a shower. I had to stand outside the fridge to keep the door cracked so the light would stay on, but not too wide so everyone wouldn’t see you in the shower. PS. You were taking a shower because we were going to go out later and I was carrying a Mary Poppins type bag with everything we could ever possibly need in it. And I may have been wearing an Eskimo snow suit. (Note to self: Probably time to switch the heat on.)
It also leads to ridiculous conversations. Like this one with B.
B: What do you want for dinner?
B: That’s not the healthiest dinner.
Me: But I want Twizzlers for dinner!
B: Fine. But you’ll need to have a veg with that.
Me: Okaaaay… How about green beans?
B: With your Twizzlers?
B: I guess that’ll work.
So in case you were wondering, I’d really like some Twizzlers, please.
And also maybe I should cut back on the sugar.
