“Is it Halloween already?” Ralph asked.
“How naive are you, Anita?” Ralph asked. “No trick or treaters ever come to our door. They all are afraid of this old house. They think it’s haunted.”
“And you do nothing to change that perception. You should be ashamed of yourself for being so mean to these little children on Halloween. They so look forward to it each year,” Anita said.
Ralph shook his head. “So you’d welcome all of these little rugrats in their cutesy little costumes falling all over themselves to fill up on candy, huh?”
“Yes, I would,” Anita said. “Besides, the candy will lure them in here and then we can snatch up the plumpest of the lot and throw them in the cauldron of boiling broth for our main course at our annual Halloween feast”
“Fine,” Ralph said. “I’ll pick up some candy tomorrow.”
“No,” Anita insisted. “Halloween is the day after tomorrow. I don’t want you to procrastinate another day. Get your old fogey ass to the store right now.”
