At least an official or two, like the Athens mayor (I’m pretty sure) and the superintendent of schools (maybe), proclaimed that we’d trick-or-treat tonight instead of tomorrow night.
Yeah, that’s not working out. It’s been dark for an hour, and I’ve answered the door four times. (We usually get 75-100 trick-or-treaters.) Lea took the boys, and they just stopped back by with some take, but not much.
There’s no good reason for this. I heard someone say something about schoolnight vs. non-schoolnight, but come on. Halloween occurs during the week all the time. Because it’s Sunday? Again, come on. We’re not sacrificing first-borns here.
So my traditional activity is watching House of 1000 Corpses, but as it’s Saturday night, I’m watching the Auburn/Ole Miss game instead. As we have very few guests, I have long stints of uninterrupted viewing. Figures the game wouldn’t be any good.
I guess we’ll do it again tomorrow night? Who knows?
