We’ve had, oh, about 75-80 kids so far tonight. Those lucky folks nearby on Greenwich’s Maher Avenue? They tell me it’s usually 1,200-1,500 kids! Think about that; I spent about $40 today on full-size KitKat, Hershey’s, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and I’m almost out. If I lived on Maher and was similarly generous, I’d be out $850-1,000!
Another interesting note is the observation that Port Chester and Stamford parents drive their kids over here for trick’r’treating because, well, the pickings are better and the car traffic is lighter. So, once again, Greenwich takes care of everybody! Perhaps State Rep. Rosa DeLauro, presently demanding free diapers for Connecticut’s poor will next turn her government-expanding gaze towards candy! It’s not fair that Greenwich has better candy, dammit, we need a new law, or at least a new tax!
