Father and Mother Edit never knew this, but... Queen Tuffet and I sometimes went trick-or-treating twice on Halloween when we were kids.

We were so excited to get some candy that at about 5:00 or so, we'd put on some stupid costume--rubber hairy hands or spider legs or an ugly mask--then go to the bottom of the hill and work our way up. Then, after dinner, we got into our real costumes and went trick-or-treating again.

The only problem with this was that the people on our side of the street didn't give out that great of candy, and we were always too chicken to go to the other side of the street and really make an afternoon of it. Plus we had to be fast because we didn't want Mother Edit to notice we were missing...

Come to think of it, I'm not entirely sure Queen Tuffet did this at all. I wonder if it was just me. Hmm.

I probably wouldn't have noticed.

That is too funny. Why didn't I think of that?
