“It is Halloween night,” said Father. “How come you aren’t going trick-or-treating?”
“I am getting too old for trick-or-treating,” said Ugly Sally.
“Think of all the candy you are going to miss out on,” said Father.
“I think my teeth and the dentist won’t mind,” said Ugly Sally.
“But what about all the candy you share with me?” asked Father, laughing.
“I wouldn’t exactly call you going through my candy and taking the best ones out for yourself, sharing,” said Ugly Sally, smiling.
“Okay,” said Father. “I guess you are getting too old for trick-or-treating. I have an idea. Why don’t you, Mother and I spend tonight watching scary movies? We will have our own Halloween celebration.”
“Yes,” said Ugly Sally. “That sounds like a good idea. We can have a very happy Halloween.”
“Absolutely,” said Father, pulling a box of candy out of the cupboard.
“Where did those come from? “asked Ugly Sally.
“I bought an extra box in case of emergency,” said Father.
“Happy Halloween,” said Ugly Sally, taking a handful.
