Trick-or-treating in Gainesville and other places sucks, it turns out

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
