THIS is why we went and had us a kid

ethan_jeremy.jpgTonight we, along with our neighbors Sam and Cindy and their two boys, took Ethan to the first of 3 trick or treat outings we’ll be going on this year, the Trunk or Treat sponsored by the 12th Aviation Battalion, here on post (“trunk or treat” is the same as “trick or treat” only parking lot style… and yes, it was as shady as it sounds, especially given the fact that it wasn’t so much of a parking lot as it was a dark alley next to an old warehouse…).

WHAT A LETDOWN. Two trunks? Two trunks??? Seriously.

When we got home, we put Ethan right to bed, divided up the candy and had at it. I’ve already eaten all the Tootsie Rolls.

I should give props where props are due: the 60 cats and that goat in the backyard? Yeah, I stole those from Kim. She’s the true comedienne here. I am merely a copy cat. And a thief. A copy-catting thiefster.

you’re kidding, right? you? YOU love that commercial? since when do you like nice, lovey, oohey gooey things? and how is it possible that you can watch that and not want to puke, let alone actually want to buy the detergent???

i don’t hate you. but i am thoroughly disappointed in you. and i want nothing to do with your cats and goat.
