This was also my very first time ever going trick or treating. And I mean that. J. at the library took pity on our unprepared selves and replaced the paper bag we'd been using for Teddy's treats with the canonical plastic pumpkin. I had bought Karen Katz' book about Halloween, but not actually bought the plastic pumpkin. D'oh.
Out of all the loot (quite a lot of chocolate bars -- snickers, mounds -- and some m and ms and so forth), the only things I could theoretically eat are the Skittles (which I don't much care for) and the Junior Mints (which are now gone). So Halloween has been something of a caloric let down. For me.
I may need to pick up some post-Halloween candy corn.
