Walking the Neighborhood and Extorting Candy With Bounty Hunters

Here we are about to head out last night.
Aren't my little bounty hunters adorable? Boba Fet was always the coolest looking Star Wars character to me as a kid.

Me, well, isn't it obvious? I'm dressed as, uh, a...? Joe the Scientist? Average Gay Man? Guy Who Forgot to Shave That Morning?

Anyway, I hope you all had as much fun as we did. Remember, parents, your kids brought home a lot of tooth-rotting candy. It would be negligent of you to not help them eat it.

i never liked those face coverings, hard to breathe under them.

We had a great Halloween, too. It's normally a huge event here in San Fran (though driving through the Castro, the traditional Halloween epicenter, on our way home, there were few people out, probably as many bored police hanging out and chatting), but for me it felt a lot like my basically suburban childhood memories of Halloween in Utah (except 4 of the 6 families we celebrated with were LGBT parent families). Fortunately the No on 8 signs outnumbered the Yes on 8, even in the more conservative west side of town. We considered asking the kids to say, "Trick or Treat and No on 8", but decided against it. Didn't want any razors in their apples from closet 8 supporters. ;)

My son is allergic to peanuts, so as a responsible and loving mother I eat all of his Snickers, Reeses, and other peanut laden treats.

The kids have hidden their candy from me now, though. :(

We use their candy as an economic teaching tool.

"You owe your stepdad a candy tax because he drove down the hill to pick you up."

"You owe your mom a candy tax for doing your hair and makeup."

"You owe me and your dad a candy tax for walking with you."

"You have not collected enough candy to pay your candy tax due on the sewing I did to make your costumes."

I wish I could take credit. It's all my husband's doing.

qu "i never liked those face coverings, hard to breathe under them."

And that's why I ended up carrying them all night :-).

I'm glad to hear you had a good halloween Guy.

San Fran has a conservative side? I thought it was all bath houses and liquor stores? At least that's what I'm told here in Utah.

" You guys look great :)"

Thanks Evan. They were intimidating in their outfits; the dog wouldn't even get near them.

"My son is allergic to peanuts, so as a responsible and loving mother I eat all of his Snickers, Reeses, and other peanut laden treats. "

Now that's a good mother.

You sound like a tax and spend liberal, Edgy.

I prefer to think of it as Reagonomic candy redistribution.

Aren't they a little short to be storm troopers? :D
