Some children walked past the house earlier tonight shouting “trick-or-treat!!!”
I had a horrifying moment where I realised that all we had in the house was a bag of skittles that I opened yesterday. Eep.
Halloween isn’t huge in Australia, but I did manage to go trick or treating a few times as a kid, and I learnt a thing or two.
You never remember the houses that give you the amazing lollies.
You always remember the houses that give you the lame stuff.
I still remember the house that gave me the already opened block of cooking chocolate.
This was an hugely disappointing offering to a nine year old. Firstly because I knew from experience cooking chocolate tasted bitter. Secondly because Mum took it off me the minute she laid eyes on it amongst my trick-or-treat haul, citing possible poisoning by ‘bad people’, so I didn’t even get to test out if I had developed a new found love of bitter chocolate.
I glare at that house every time I drive past it. I am sure the couple living there are very nice people, but all I remember is that opened block of cooking chocolate.
Anyway, in other Halloween related activities, how great is this bat-in-flight necklace from Handy Maiden (aka Danielle Pedersen)?? Sweet.
I think the seagull would look super cute at the beach as the weather warms up, and Natalie Portman made swans hip and stuff, right?
