I love my mom … she’s very generous, and tries to think of everyone, which is a wonderful trait. She lives with us, and always buys a bunch of Halloween candy (we have the front door, she’s got a side entrance nobody goes to, so she gives the candy to us to hand out). Well, this year, she also bought a huge bag of single-packs of Cheetos “for those kids who can’t have candy.” Generous? Absolutely! Buuutttt ….
…. what parent would take their ‘can’t have candy’ child trick-or-treating? Just imagine, played out endlessly throughout the night: “Trick or treat!” “Oh, sorry, Timmy, they only have candy. There’s nothing here for you. Maybe the next house will have something other than candy!” … ummm. You’d have one pretty dejected Timmy on your hands by about the third house.
That said, I’d rather ‘kind but a bit illogical’ over ‘logical but heartless’ anyday!
