Halloween is the time that people say to me- “Take it! Take it! It doesn’t matter that you’re too old, and that you’re not dressed up. Take this lovely chocolate bar (or two, three…) off of our hands!”
Halloween is the time I say back- “Oh, no, no- I couldn’t. No, no, keep it… well, if you really think so.”
Halloween is the time when, unfortunately, friends, I become a hypocrite.
Until Food Rule #64 comes into play: Break the rules, once in a while. Thank you, Michael Pollan. My infraction of the Homesteading Code (is there such thing? I hope not. I’ve probably destroyed it…) has been forgiven.
In the meantime, I’ll just finish off this box…
