The Great Pumpkin Will Rise!
By rockthemini on October 28, 2010
Being Halloween week, I'm in freak out mode dealing with the Mouse's severe food allergies. Most cannot relate, and believe me, I realize it could be worse, but man it sucks. I'm dodging literal egg and peanut bullets around every corner and having to explain to my three young kids that they cannot have that piece of candy gripped in their tiny, little hands. You can imagine, it doesn't go so well.
It's not fair, life isn't fair and we are doing what you have to do when life hands you a lemon. Our glass of lemonade will be a visit from the Great Pumpkin. He will rise out of the most sincere pumpkin patch to reward little boys and girls who offer him their unsafe candy. In return, the Great Pumpkin will leave special gifts and treats!
In theory, it sounds like a fun plan, but I am bracing myself for the possible backlash it may create. I figure this could go two ways, excitement for the thought of gifts or complete freakout that a giant pumpkin will rise and come take all their candy. I'll keep you posted!
