I’ll Take That!

3 Nov

Eldest Daughter called the other day to tell us about taking her grandchildren, Sweet Girl and Butch, out to Trick or Treat.  They live in Charleston, SC, where it is still warm enough in the evenings for the grownups to be out on the porch or patio watching the kids parade up and down the streets. A good number of them will have what amounts to Tailgate Parties, with all the trimmings, while they pass out candies.

One woman waved them up closer, exclaimed over their costumes, and offered them a bowl of treats, telling them to “take what they liked”. Butch’s eyes lit up, and he exclaimed, “Oh, I do like that!”. He reached around her and grabbed a hotdog off the grill, stuffed most of into his mouth, and called out, “Oh! Thank you” as he turned to join his sister.
