My Personal Bodyguards

Another Halloween and I have to tell you, as I strolled through the streets of Los Feliz, I knew I had nothing to fear.

I was protected by the dynamic duo of a corn-rowed Ninja Turtle and Spiderman. I think they look pretty fierce, don't you?

Unfortunately, after six blocks of running door-to door, gleefully exclaiming, "Trick-or-Treat!" the Ninja Turtle got a little cranky. He smelled a box of Dots that a nice old lady handed him and declared, "It's not chocolate! I don't want it!"

He then pitched the candy into the bushes.

I wanted a black hole to swallow all of us. I was so embarrased. All you parents out there, I'm sure you understand. If you don't have kids, believe me, if you ever do, just know that when your child pitches candy into a bush, it's past time to go home!

I personally feel safer knowing these guys are out there.

Hey, did you check the bush? Maybe that was his way of protecting you from the threat within, by dinging the Evil with Dots before it could strike.

Oh ye of little faith...

I'm with your kid. You're supposed to hand out chocolate on Halloween--and ONLY chocolate.
