Trick or Treating Disappointment

Friday, November 1, 2013

Picture it. 

Doorbell rings, I grab our bucket o' candy and open the door with a smile! 

"Trick or treat!" Three kids smile with bags open.

I compliment their costume choices and tell them Happy Halloween as I deliver goodies to their bags. 

Then it happened. It.happened. 

"Can I have green instead or maybe gummies?"

I instantly went into teacher mode and asked if she had an allergy. She did not.  

"That's not really how Halloween works." I couldn't stop! I said it again, louder, so their parents (waiting patiently at the end of the driveway could hear me.) "You get what you get, and you don't mind a bit!"

I smiled politely and closed the door. This was a first for me.

I know the kids weren't being mean, but really?
