Dear people that live(d) in or near Des Moines, Iowa.
Guess what? Here in Gainesville, Florida, when kids go trick or treating, they don’t tell corny jokes. What the hell? I guess this lame non-telling of lame jokes is pretty widespread as my New York native girlfriend never heard of that and neither had her New Hampshire native sister-in-law!
The kids and the candy givers barely even interact at all. No one says, “Oh, I like your costume, what are you dressed up as?” or anything.
Also, there is no set time for trick-or-treating. Just start when you want, end when you want. I saw kids still running around at 9:20. Not like in Des Moines, where it’s officially 6pm-8pm as decreed by the City.
This is so sad. -kicknz
