What to hand out to Trick-Or-Treaters

Madison West, Editor

As October begins to creep in, you begin to plan the ultimate Halloween costume. But there’s just one problem; you’re too old to trick-or-treat. Mom orders you to stay home and hand out treats. Snickers, Twix, M&M’s, popcorn balls, and pretzels are go-to handouts, but mom left the house shy of any treats so what are you to do? 

At this point mom’s pantry has been destroyed during the search for a mere morsel of candy. Then the light bulb switches on. Trick-or-treat. Looks like that old scarecrow in the shed will come in handy after all. Another great idea comes about. You call up the boys and ask them to bring old sheets over. They’re confused at first, but they get the idea soon after.  

Everything is in place. That old creepy scarecrow is placed at the mailbox to give an eerie feel when the kids walk near. The boys are hiding behind the bushes in their ghost sheets. You wait with a bowl of dental floss and uncooked pasta as a reward if the trick-or-treaters make it past what lies ahead for them.
