Lost Encounters with the Chocolate Loving Ghost

Lost Encounters with the Chocolate Loving Ghost
Empty Jack-o-lantern / Stock Photo

It was October 31, 2001; Alley my 4yr old was dressed as a cat. Destiny Rose, my 2yr old was dressed as a pink Devil, or Debil as she said. Austin, Melanie’s 3yr old boy was Scooby Doo. That night all three kids got enough candy for an Army.

I took the girls stash and froze some. Put some away for birthday parties. And, of course I let them devour some, as I did too. Melanie being a chocolate connoisseur from way back, did even better than I did. She divided the chocolate and the other junk. When going for a Snickers mini, she didn’t want to be bothered with a Bottle Cap sour or a Pixie Stick.

The next day me and my girls came by and Melanie was in a panic. The chocolate was gone. The jack-o-lantern was empty. Well I figured Melanie was lying. I felt that way until that weekend when she and I made four-dozen no-bake cookies. We put them in an ice cream bucket to store them. We went to Hardee’s with all 3 kids for about an hour came back and the bucket was on the counter were we left it. It was completely empty. I apologized to Melanie that night.
