Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m wallowing. It’s November 1st which means I turn 25 this month. I don’t care much about 25, it’s more the years that follow it. I may be ridiculous but I am honest!
How fun was your Halloween? From 8am to 5pm I educated people who came to my office about blood sugar, weight loss, and cholesterol.
I discovered a little note from the ginorm spider that had been hidden all over our office building from the maintenance staff.
I was told that for part of the first spider day, it was in the elevator corner which scared every dietitian-so glad I was too busy that day in the office to take the elevator! I am someone who can be startled by my own shadow. Imagine me seeing a huge spider tucked up in the elevator corner!
From 5:30pm to 7:30pm I reversed all of my days’ hard work by handing out candy.
Each kid and over-aged 15 year olds were given one piece of candy unless a. they were a neighbor kid or b. had an amazing costume <—-homemade Charlotte’s Web costume! By passing out candy, did I ensure future work? (Kidding, kidding!)
I passed out the candy to the trick or treaters while the boyfriend made dinner. I was sent an email at work requesting Indian food to be our dinner, so channa masala it was! I prepped and roasted broccoli in between door bell rings. I figured if we ran out of candy, we could always give away part of the batch of roasted broccoli.
We did crack open a Kick!
Love that sour cranberry taste! I made sure to set this down before answering the door. And the boyfriend also took his kegerator off the front porch as well. There was still this pumpkin greeting the trick or treators though-
A few 12 year olds commented, “Screw City Beer Festival? Cool!!” Sorry parents! My pumpkin was a little more PG.
Every time I walked by it after giving out candy I’d enthusiastically say “Andy Schleck!!!” One trick or treater’s parents said, “A Schleck….the Schleck brothers!” Wow, I was impressed. I should have given them all of my candy and shut off the porch light at that point.
Dinner came together around 7pm.
We had a few more trick or treaters during dinner but it was dying down. We took turns answering the door while eating. Our last group was a bunch of street dressed 15 year-olds who asked the boyfriend what we were cooking since it smelled so good! He told them Indian food. Maybe next year we should offer channa masala and naan?
