Which means you, and possibly your children, have been eating Halloween candy all weekend.
Personally, I don’t. It isn’t because I have reached a level of self-control, or self-righteousness that has given me the enlightened perspective of one who would not sully herself with eating every single Reece’s Peanut Butter cup.
It isn’t because I have some secret philosophy against the commercialization of All Hallows Eve.
It isn’t even that I think the candy is gross.
It is because in my ripe old age, if I start eating halloween candy, my legs start looking like this:
Thankfully, I haven’t lost all my pizazz! In my heart of hearts, I still enjoy the old time tradition of spirits and cocktails!
So, the real question is:
How can I make this unique experience really work for me?
Eh, ya gotta live a little…
You gotta put a little Snazz with your Stash!
