Halloween Fun

Yeah, so all the other blogs bring you pictures of great costumes wandering the streets of their neighborhoods.  Good for them.  How can I compete?  I was much too busy adjusting my codpiece the whole night to have time to take pictures of random strangers on the street (though I do with I had a picture of Matt's Mexican wrestler costume to post - it was good).  But I did find something else.

What do you do when you have a burning desire to give out candy to kids (or whoever), but you live on the second floor of an apartment building with no children?  How do you get in on this Halloween action?  First, you decorate your balcony.  Everyone else does ghosts and spiders and witches and tombstones, but you are a little more original.

Maybe make it look like a ship in the water (complete with sails).  Then...

You could throw candy at passersby like so many Mardi Gras beads, but that is no fun when you are not trying to get people to show things.  These are kids.  Plus there are liability issues if you hit a child in the eye with a Milky Way.  I tell you what you do.  You run a tube down to street level.  (I know this sounds dirty, but it is not)

Then you have a way to dispense candy to costumed revelers from your apartment.  This is especially exciting if you are a germaphobe.  (though a germaphobe probably spends Halloween safely locked in his home)  

 I am sure it was fun for both the children and the dressed up nerds with the skills to design and build a candy cannon.  I salute you!

  1. Man, I salute them too! That is a level of commitment you rarely see. Do you know how excited I would have been to see that as a kid? ha ha ha - it's adorable.

    Now tell us more about your codpiece.
