Last Halloween I wanted to go all out on decorations for my new house so I hired a crew of spiders and ghosts to make it as spooky as possible. They did a great job.
Maybe too great. Not a single trick-or-treater came to my door.
I sat there all night with a bowl of candy, waiting, and waiting.
It was sad.
So this year I fired the spiders and ghosts and, with the help of two little goblins, took charge of decorations myself. I must say, I was pleased with the results. It was simple, yet satisfying.
The trick-or-treaters must have thought so too, ’cause I gave out most of my candy.
Who knew? Authentic isn’t always the best.
