Discovery of the day: Something completely different

This is the first year ever, I think, that I am not doing the Halloween thing. My son is with his dad. It seems that trick-or-treating has fallen out of favor over the last several years. I'm not a huge Halloween fan anyway, so there just didn't seem to be a reason to go there this year.

I have bought no candy. I have carved no pumpkins. I have taped no decorations to the windows. Yeah, it's kind of weird, but it's also kind of liberating.

At lunchtime today I went grocery shopping and, I admit, the sight of all those people buying huge bags of Milk Duds and Smarties did get to me, so I bought myself a 3 Musketeers bar. I'm thinking that will fill the void just fine.
