( 6:32 PM ) teahouse
Here's hoping everyone is enjoying their Halloween!
Like we do every year, the Husband and I signed up on a list to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters in our building.
Our building management makes a list like this so that only the people who want to be bothered with handing out candy, get bothered.
I grew up in the suburbs, where you left your outside light on to indicate your availability to hand out candy. If you turned off your light, people knew not to approach your house.
Here, of course, it's slightly different in a big city high-rise building. So we put our names and apartment number on the list.
Just now, I was in the bedroom and the Husband was sitting in the living room. He'd just come home from a long day of working, and was relaxing.
The doorbell rang. The Husband yelled out to me, "Can you get the door? I'm not wearing any pants!"
I'm pretty sure the kids and their parents heard!
I'm totally mortified. This is how you get to be "that creepy couple on the 10th floor." #
