I finally got a big group of teenagers without costumes. A few of them got a pass, as one said he was a baseball player (hat and t-shirt of same team, so I accepted that one) and one had a hoodie that when zipped all the way up, the hood created a mask, complete with crazy plastic eye thingies. Although both those boys would just wear those clothes on any day, they worked it enough for me to say okay.
But one of the girls said "I'm a boy" and just had on normal clothes. She had done her hair and makeup in her normal girl style, so that wasn't acceptable. She ended up doing jumping jacks for me while all her friends laughed. I told them all to shut up because at least she ~tried~ to do a trick and they were all wearing lame costumes. She said "yeah, shut up!" and I gave her the most candy. It was funny. They all were cool with me and wished me a good night.
I had ~a lot~ of moms come to the door carrying little teeny babies dressed up in cute costumes. Okay, that's fine, but they were asking for candy! Come on, a 15 week old baby doesn't need candy. I could see going to your next door neighbor's house for the "first halloween" picture, but going door to door, street by street, collecting a huge bag of candy? Lame.
Living in the ghetto is so entertaining though, I'll give it that.
