Give us the choco goodness, please! Pennies, stickers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, anything promoting positive dental care - none of this is acceptable to give out on Halloween. Same goes for uncandied apples, Play-Doh, boxes of raisins and anti-pagan tchotchkes doled out by women who remind you of Carrie's mom. (Dirty pillows!) Here's the deal, spoilsports: Kids will consume pounds of choco goodness whether you like it or not. In fact, you're actually being harmful by trying to be healthy with your tricky treats. Why? Because (1) the "Stay in School" pencil topper you insisted on giving out are destined for a nearby landfill and (2) so is the toilet paper that will inevitably be wrapped around your house because kids hate you. Me? I'm giving out Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats and Take 5s. Cliche? Maybe. Delicious? Yep. Have a Baby Ruth, boys and girls, and enjoy the Halloween Playlist, Nos. 20-11.
