Happy Friday! Tomorrow is Halloween. We’re not doing much, just hanging out at home and giving out candy. We tend to get a lot of kids, and one of us **ME** gives out handfuls. So I bought six bags of candy. That should do it.
Wizard always whines that I’m giving out too much and there won’t be any left for him. I bite my tongue to keep from yelling at him for being naturally thin, I mean it’s not nice to judge, right? Then I start giving out two handfuls. Because seriously, he’ll eat twelve candy bars and not gain a pound. I’ll lick one piece and gain weight. And then he’ll be all nice and understanding about me gaining weight…so you see why I have to give out ALLLLL the candy, right?
So I have this worked out perfectly. Six bags, factoring in the times he gives out candy one piece at a time, and the remaining times I get to the door first, and give out handfuls. Yep, if my calculations are right, we’ll be candy free by the end of the night.
And then this happened yesterday:
Wizard came up to me: “Hey, don’t you need some medicine picked up?”
Shoot I’d forgotten. I look up from
playing on Facebook writing , “Oh that’s right. I’ll go get in later.”
Wizard grabs his keys and wallet. “I’ll go get it for you now.”
He’s awfully enthusiastic. So I asked, “Are you going out to do other errands?”
“No.” He smiles at me. “But you’re busy so I’ll go.” He kisses me and leaves before I can say anything else. So I shrug and go back to
procrastinating on Facebook writing.
A little while later Wizard walks in carrying a plastic bag. A big one. “Um,” I squint my eyes. “You bought candy!”
He gleefully pulled out two more bags on Halloween candy. “I was there getting your medication and it was on sale. I mean I had to buy it. It was an awesome deal.”
“We had six bags!”
“Now we have eight. And we’ll have left overs.” He’s practically singing this.
I glare at him. “You used my medication as an excuse to buy more candy!”
“Yep.” He dropped his hands on my desk, getting right in my face. “If I tie you you up on Halloween night, you won’t be able to give out all my candy.”
I laughed. Wizard can be pretty funny.
He stared back, that wicked ass glint in his eye. Then he stood up and sauntered off to put his candy away.
Wait…he was kidding about tying me up, right? RIGHT???
Whether you’re celebrating Halloween or not, hope you have a great weekend!
