It’s four days after the glorious holiday of Halloween and there is still a massive bowl of candy on the counter. Not that I’ve been slacking in the candy-eating department, but I think people are having less sex than they used to as evidenced by the scarcity of kids in the neighborhood.

In fact, there were no teenagers at all this year and the streets were clean and free of shaving cream, eggs, toilet paper and candy wrappers on Saturday morning. That’s never happened in my many years of home ownership.

Worse, as much as I like caloric treats, I don’t think I can finish off the pile of delights in the ceramic bowl. There are actually two bags of candy still left in the cupboard, too.

Want some? Here’s the list of what remains…

Everlasting Gobstoppers…choking size small

Candy-corn Flavor Taffy

Miniature Tootsie-rolls (about a billion)

Double Bubble Gum


Caramel Recces Peanut Butter Cups

and a few Kit Kats

Just gimme a call. Otherwise I’m putting it on Craigslist with the uSurf and my double recliner.

More to come…
