Unwanted Halloween Candy

Maya's strategy for getting rid of her unwanted Halloween candies (the ones she deems "yucky") is to offer them to her parents or other adults who come to visit.  You have to be wary of accepting these gifts, however.  To date, her offerings have included the following:

Nibs -- after she spent the better part of half an hour playing with them and sending them to vacation in "Florida", a.k.a the top of her feet. 

Oh Henry bar -- not the whole thing, just the chewy toffee and peanut centre.  She had already licked off the chocolate.

Sour Patch Kids --  covered in lint. 

Sour Patch Kids (take 2) -- soaking wet.  No, she hadn't licked it ... she'd washed it in the sink to clean off the sour sugar (and probably some lint) for Daddy.

Some of her offerings have been fine, but if you come to visit in the next little while, consider yourself forewarned.

  1. Maya needs to meet the sugar sprite. The sugar sprite comes the night of Halloween and takes away the half of your candy that you don't want, and leaves something non-candy in return - Mae got a CD this year. That means that you, the parent, gets to eat the candy pre-molestation. Or, you can do what I do, and feed the candy to your students.
