The Halloween Chocolate Pimp



My youngest got on the 
Volleyball team at school. 


Freshman year, 
new group of kids 
so this should be great, 
right?


Then the F word is spoken . . .


Fundraiser.


Donations? 
Sure.


Participation fee? 
I understand.


Car wash, 
yard clean up or 
contributing to a raffle basket?
Tolerable.


But the pimping out 
of little plastic crap 
to relatives, neighbors 
and coworkers. 
Nope.


In this case, 
600 bars of chocolate.


Nope. Nope. 
Nope-ity Nope.


Who the hell am I supposed to sell 600 bars of chocolate to?


Are you kidding!?!


So I sucked it up 
and 
wrote a check for the full amount.


The kid’s bedroom has become 
the repository of 
wayward chocolate bars.


Today 
I was able to ditch 
half of the chocolate 
to a relative’s 
Trick or Trunk party!

Ruth Baby Ginsberg wins Halloween, so stop trying.

How happy am I!?!


Happy Halloween
