A Dad Can Enjoy Halloween Too (limerick)

On Halloween night wife would stay

To watch ghouls and ghosts safely play

And me I was dandy

To keep myself handy

To help put kid’s candy away

I remember when this occurred at my house. Had to check all for razor blades. Usually did it after the kids were in bed. Very close checking, to say the least. Great Job!

I wonder if your checking included sampling as well. Either way you handy dandy candy sorting sounds like the one of the best parts of Halloween. Thanks for making me smile. :)

Uh-huh. Putting it away in your tummy is the best part. I like to sneak the little Almond Joy bars. Yum! What a cute little poem you write. Thanks for the smile.

Sounds like my dad. There always seemed to be a lot less reeses peanut butter cups after he "inspected" my candy for danger. Funny!

Haha! Hope that you don't put TOO MUCH of that candy away, if I catch your meaning. In other words...save some for the kids. :)) Halloween will soon be upon us. Let your conscience be your guide. (Smile)
