Given to Chester from Molly.
I'm really trying to put a face with a name 
Happy Halloween everyone!  I haven't trick-or-treated in years, but when I did, I got about 96% treats and only 4% tricks.  Some of my favorite treats are Reese's Cups, Almond Joys, and Mounds.  The more upscale families would give chocolate from Malley's (a local chocolate company) or See's (on the West Coast) and us kids always made sure we left their house off the t.p. list.  This is what compromises the 4% of tricks that I loathed:

-Bit 'O Honeys: Would someone please phase these out of production?  My friend Mike Haas got a loose tooth out by biting on one of those.  They taste like your smelly cousin's earwax.  Uh, no thanks.

-Apples: The well-intentioned families who gave apples were loathed by trick-or-treaters.  First, your parents thought there might be razor blades in them and they were thrown away or you got a lecture about not biting into them right away.  Second, an apple tastes like a brussel sprout after you've been inhaling your trove of Pop Rocks, Nerds, Sour Patch Kids and Tootsie Rolls.

-Pennies: Ooooohhh--here's 6 cents!  Give me the Bit 'O Honey, please.


Harpists are 'players'

-You're a member of this group called 'New Horizons" where adults learn or re-learn how to play musical instruments.  In your opinion, which instrument [player] gets the most action?:  The trumpets...they blow a lot of hot air.

-Like Chester Cheetah, for what activity would you use or leave powdered cheese dust behind?:  I'd use the cheese dust to leave a trail to get to my favorite watering hole.

-You're the 21st bearded gift exchanger.  Are you jolly?:  Oh, but of course!
