All Hallows Eve

Good blog post by Duncan McLaren about What’s right with Halloween.

Last night I got home in the dark from a cycle. I was just unlocking the shed when a small group of ghouls and ghosts appeared at the back gate.

“Trick or treat!” they exclaimed in unison.

“Seriously,” I said, “do I look like I’ve got anything apart from my bike?”

They reluctantly agreed.  I guessed that it would be “trick” time, then. But they didn’t hold up their side of the contract.

“Are you having good fun?” I asked.

“Look how many sweeties I’ve got” said one ghirl (that’s a girl ghoul), holding up a carrier bag as they wandered away.

I think I got away lightly. Little did they know, but I had a half-eaten bag of out-of-date, dry roasted peanuts in my pannier.
