Help Me With My Problem.

I've lived at my current location for 20+ years.

In all that time I've never had a Trick or Treater come to my door.

Yet every year I buy a boatload of full sized candy bars just in case I get one.

Guess I don't want to be caught with my pants down if one shows up

If one ever does show up I'll be able to make there night in one stop. They'll get it all.

Now the problem is. No one showed up again this year. What do I do with all this candy?

I only buy the things I like because I know I'll have to get rid of it somehow.

I don't think my butt can take the overload this year.

Please Help!

As I write this my rear end gets bigger as I chow down on a Snickers bar.

Give them to a food bank. Think how good and how thin you'll feel.


Next year, don't buy any candy and turn off your front porch light.

The food bank is a good idea and my butt will thank me.

But I don't think they'll make the drive.

I have no self control.


I don't think I can not buy next year. It's the old "What If."

What if one shows up? Making the trek down my driveway they deserve a "Treat". And I sure don't want a "Trick."

Maybe I should go to the neighbors houses and force it on them and there kids?

I don't think turning off the porch light would do much good because you don't really see it from the road.

Besides as a kid I never liked the houses with the lights out. I welcome Trick or Treaters but my location isn't conducive to them.

Guess It's my destiny to have a giant arse.

Yep, that was my first thought, before I noticed that Andy got there first.

Excuses, excuses! Sounds to me as if you don't really want to stop buying the candy

No Candy for me???

Now that's just wrong.

It is Halloween after all and I'm just a big kid.

I can't not get any "just in case" and there are always new families moving into the "hood".

One never knows who will show up at there door.












The issue is being resolved as I munch on a Kit-Kat.

Oh well I needed a new belt anyway.

The truth is in the answer to the following question:

Do you buy candy any other times during the year? If so, go directly to the Guilty Pleasures thread and post there. And don't try to kid us. We know all the tricks.
