- Fizzy Thoughts: Another slow Halloween in MB

Another slow Halloween in MB

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

We've gotten four trick or treaters in two hours. A ladybug, a Buzz(ette) Lightyear, what appeared to be Luke Skywalker, and a princess. The bowl of candy is still full, even after I told young Luke to take a handful.

Ooops, spoke too soon. The teenagers just showed up. At least these were teenagers in full costume, not the typical Halloween teens in street clothes carrying pillowcases. There were a few vampires and a nerd (plaid shorts and knee high socks!). They were stoked about the Reese's peanut butter cups and I was happy to see some teenagers who weren't too cool to have a fun time.

But now it's getting close to bedtime, so the porch light is out and there is still a big bowl of candy on the counter.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
