My Friends, Please Be Careful...!
Today is Halloween. This means that a lot of little trick or treaters will be out and about on the streets and the sidewalks!
You know and I know that children can get all caught up in the excitement of the candy, the costumes, and the company of friends...not to mention the constant wonder of how much loot is in the bag!
The point is...please watch out for all the ghosts and goblins out there because on nights like this, they often don't watch out for themselves!
I know it sounds like I'm preaching a bit here...and the truth is, I probably am! I just don't want the mood and the laughter of the evening turning into a sad, avoidable night of sadness!
Just one more thing...and I hope that I'm not out of line here, but please be careful with the alcohol! I know there will be parties going on, and sometimes the booze flows a little freely! All I ask is for a small favor, OK?
Be very, very careful and please...whatever you do, KEEP ALL THE BOOZE AWAY FROM THE PUMPKINS!!
They are a sorry sight when they get under the spell, don't ya know? Not to mention how messy they are! Bad enough to have to clean up the candy wrappers and pieces of costumes and lost sneakers...without having to clean up after a bunch of drunk Pumpkin-heads!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for just a bit, OK? Don't worry, I'll help you clean up later!
