Really kiddos, MUST you cut through my flower beds? I know my sidewalk takes a hard right angle, but did trampling over my vincas really save you that much time? And parents, don't just watch ... this would be a great time to teach "respect for other people's property!"
OK, listen up, here's how the scene should go down:
You: (ring doorbell. Once will do just fine, three is the max if you are super excited.)
Me: (open door)
You: Trick-or-Treat!!!! (enthusiastically)
Me: Wow, what great costumes! You're such a pretty ballerina, and you're such a funny clown and oooo, scary pirate! (hand out candy) Here ya go, have fun!
You: Thank you!! (enthusiastically)
If you have facial hair of any kind that is not a part of your costume ... no candy for you.
If you drove yourself to my house to trick-or-treat ... no candy for you.
If you have hickeys ... no candy for you.
If you are trick-or-treating with a 3-month-old ... it's pretty obvious who is going to be eating that candy later, so no candy for you.
