Halloween plans

For the last several years, I have been treatening to hand out homework assignments to those greedy children who come to extort candy at halloween. Now that I have come to truly appreciate how evil carbohydrates are, I might actually follow through this year!

By the way, in Denmak there is an event similar to Halloween but one that is celebrated at another time during the year. That event also involves juvenile demands for candy and dressing up in scary costumes. When I arrived in the U.S., I thought the collection process was known as "trigger treating." One year in high school, we were challenged on Halloween to dress as the person we admired first. That was very easy in my case.
