Guess who ate all of Put Pie’s Halloween candy? One hint: it wasn’t Put Pie. My 3 year old daughter has a refined palate when it comes to candy. She only likes dark chocolate, the darker the better. Although she had tons of fun trick or treating, when it came time to sample her take she was less than impressed.
I have a sensitive heart and a non-discriminating palate and when I saw the candy laying there forlornly, I did what any decent person would do, I put it out of it’s misery. The first couple of times I was euthanizing the candy, I felt like I had to sneak it because Put Pie might get mad. Then days passed and she never asked about it, so I went about openly providing relief for those sweet discarded confections. You could call me an angel of mercy, I wouldn’t argue with you.
This is one joke I wouldn’t have been able to play on Put Pie because she just wasn’t invested. Perhaps, someday in the future when both she and her sister are older I’ll be able to have some wicked fun.
Apparently, some took offense at the joke being played on these kids. Something about trust being compromised and it being taken too far. Not me. It’s a joke! Taking it too far would be telling them their pet died when it hadn’t, but telling them you ate all their Halloween candy when you haven’t…not too far. I found it funny and I believe the children will recover and no long-lasting harm has been done, but I also love practical jokes and have been known to take it too far on occasion.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
