A Halloween Vanishing Act

Daddy Steve:  Once again Anthony was stationed at the front door on Halloween, giving out candy to trick-or-treaters.  Since we don't have many little kids in our neighborhood, it was a rather quiet evening.

Anthony:  I'm having a hard time staying awake.

Frank: Hey Tony, can I help you pass out candy?
Anthony: Sure, pull up a chair.  I don't know how much candy you'll get to pass out, though.  We've had only two kids all evening.

Anthony:  Ho-hum.

A few minutes later...

Anthony: I have to make sure the boys have taken Annabelle and Krakatoa out.  Will you be okay here by yourself?
Frank: Sure, I can handle it.

About 20 minutes later...

Anthony: Sorry for taking so long.  Sasha and Miguel insisted that Bigfoot was hiding in the pantry.  Apparently, Bigfoot looks a lot like a dust mop.

Anthony: Wow!  A lot of the candy is gone!  You must have had a lot of trick-or-treaters.
Frank:  Oh, yeah. Lots and lots of them!  A tiger, a couple of Harry Potters, some vampires and witches.  And a...and a...a...a Mariachi band!
Frank: >burp<
Anthony: Well, looks like I missed all the action.

The next morning...

Tyler: Who put all of these candy wrappers under the rug?
Mikko: Ghosts?

Ha ha, someone was rather sneaky! I wonder if Tyler and Mikko will figure it out?

I LOVE this post! Please tell your vinyl kids if they have any Kit Kats left over to post them to Rebel and I in the UK!!

Well if Anthony will leave a child in charge of a bucket of sweets! I hope Frank didn't feel ill after scoffing all that chocolate!

I'm going to save Mikko's answer to finding sweet wrappers under the rug! just in case i ever need it ;)

Hi Dee -

Frank seems to be a bottomless pit. It's a good answer; lots of older homes have chocolate eating spirits ;-)

Hi Lorraine -

If Mikko and Tyler do figure out what happened, I'm sure they'll wish they had thought of the same thing.

Hi Simply -

In fact, Bowie did try to save a few Kit Kats for you and Rebel, but Frank found those too. What can one do with some kids?
