With Halloween just around the corner, it's time for folks to start thinking about their candy game. "Kids judge you by the candy you give out," according to HowToBeADad.com. Which candy-giving category are you in?

We live in a house with a long driveway in a neighborhood where there aren't a lot of kids. My (now grown) kids used to go to other neighborhoods to do their trick-or-treating because the houses in our neighborhood are too far apart, and not worth the effort when half the people aren't even home.  But we're still "trusty providers" with a bowl of fun-sized treats waiting for at least a few much-desired trick-or-treaters (who never come).

Anything to avoid being "the Spaz." Basic honor and dignity prevents most people from being "the Spaz" or "CheapyMcCheapFace" on Halloween. Fear of getting egged or TP'd is a good motivator too. People should think twice before giving a kid a single Pixie Stick or Dum Dum.

Ain't nothing gonna stop a psychopath from giving out those heinous strawberry hard candies or circus peanuts though.
