Halloween is the time that people say to me- “Take it! Take it! It doesn’t matter that you’re too old, and that you’re not dressed up. Take this lovely chocolate bar (or two, three…) off of our hands!”
Halloween is the time I say back- “Oh, no, no- I couldn’t. No, no, keep it… well, if you really think so.”
Halloween is the time when, unfortunately, friends, I become a hypocrite.
And don’t we all, at some point or another!
