A lot has changed since I was a young trick-or-treater….. But then again, not really. I still like dressing up, I like seeing everyone else dressed up, and I still LOVE candy. When we would get back from making the rounds with my parents, us three kids would sit on the floor of the living room and dump all our candy out, and the trade would begin. Greg loved snickers and kit kats, Kel and I both loved Reese’s and anything chocolate, I hated nuts. We would trade candy back and forth until we were satisfied with our stash. Mom would always inspect shady-looking candy to make sure it wasn’t opened or had razor blades hidden in the wrappers. (Come on, I know your parents did that too!)
And just to help you visualize, here we are around 1992. I’m on the far left, Kel in the middle and Greg is all the way to the right. That robot costume was one my favorites. And you better believe I wore that hand-painted Tang outfit once Greg grew out of it.
