We’re eager to hear stories about your Halloween. Fill us in on where the best parties were, which costumes rocked and which ones flopped, plus whatever else is on your mind this Monday morning. Here’s my weekend rewind. Add yours in the comments.
Feeling the need to do something Halloween-ish, I embarked on a ghoulish outing to Fright Night Scream Park in Clovis. I’d never been before, and though I was probably twice the age of much of clientele, I had a great time. I realize it’s too late to make recommendations now, but I really enjoyed their 3-D clown haunt. It was quite a trip.
Halloween started for me in a very frightening way — furniture shopping. Let me just say this to the salesman at the upstart Furniture City (which took the place of Circuit City, in case you’re wondering) — getting angry and insulting my wife and I is not the way to close a sale.
We decided to stay home for Halloween this year, giving out candy to the neighborhood kids and whatnot. I haven’t really done that before as an adult, so that was fun. Though it did create some interesting stories.
I had to tell a group of teenagers (aged 13 or 15 or somewhere in that range) to “do better next year” when they showed up at my house. One was in costume, but his buddies weren’t. One didn’t even have a candy-collecting bag, and just expected me to put candy in his hand.
On the other side of the age spectrum: I gave a 3-year-old princess a Reese’s (what I consider the good stuff) and she looked at me and said “I want more!” Wow, kid. Some nerve there. I, of course, caved and gave her another piece of candy. I’m a sucker.
On a cute note: Check out a picture of my dog with a trick-or-treat bucket around his neck. This lasted just long enough to take the picture.
Woke up super early thanks to the time change. I watched the 49ers take another tough loss, then ventured out to the mall. While my wife shopped, I watched a couple of teenagers wander around, falling down and falling all over each other. Shouts to sloppy drunk Sundays at the mall!
