Last night as I was driving home, I noticed multiple hordes of hooligans roaming the street and looking for trouble it seemed. They were in disguise so as not to be identified. It was a scene right out of “A Clockwork Orange “.
I watched as they systematically went door to door and shook down the homeowners for, of all things…. candy. As the evening went on and they got more and more sugared up, I could hear them yelling and shouting and probably inflicting even more violence and pain than earlier.
Now, where I live is at the end of the long road, and we have a looooong dark driveway. For this reason I rarely have to worry about these types of invasions (THAT part is actually true). Yet I always buy some candy just in case I need to appease them in order to buy back my life. I don’t believe we’ve had any of them show up here in the past four years, but I still buy the candy. And then usually eat it myself.
It’s mostly those little fun size things. Rarely full bars. I mean this ain’t Kingshead Island around here…. capice?
But I digress…
If you see any gangs who look like this:
You should not confront them directly. Lock your doors and call the authorities. I’m sure they’d like to know about this pint-sized theft ring.
That’s what I did. Locked my doors, turned off all the lights, hid in the bathroom and ate as much candy just as fast as I could. You know, to foil their plan. Just in case.
On an unrelated note, I don’t feel so good today.

The Ladies Needz Candy Too!
I need to take a break from the candy I think. And also find the Pepto-Bismol.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
