shh.

the mall was the place to see and be seen, but it was not the place for the candy. i would estimate the number of adorable youngsters in costume in the several hundreds, and the number of stores not sporting ‘no candy’ or ‘out of candy’ signs, in the tens. those that had, gave sparingly. i’m trying not to want to rant about this, but the mall really could have done better. they have the makings of being The Place To Be, having a real Event, and yet, they fail to motivate their leaseholders to participate to the fullest. how friggin’ much is it out of a store’s budget to invest a couple hundred bones in a good stock of goodies? expense it to marketing! make little goody bags with the store logo! these people have no vision, man.

my son’s costume was an excellent choice — numerous folks remarked ‘look! pikachu!’ and we saw no other pikachus. and look — matching slippers:

on the other hand, we vastly underestimated our neighborhood. with hardly any kids, yet plenty of adults into the spirit of the day, decorated houses, happy gatherings of grownups feeling ever so generous — what with the dearth of children, candy came in the handfulls, in the ‘take as many as you want’ kind of spirit. and everyone was so happy to see the little pikachu dude:
