This is the post in which we say goodbye. We’re both leaving our respective jobs at Beliefnet, and so it’s time to step away from the blog. So, this is the post in which we say goodbye…by saying thank you. Thank you to you, the readers, for clicking and visiting and sharing the myriad ways […]
Confession time: for me, Halloween is a one-night high-fructose corn syrup-soaked feast, a no-holds-barred visit back to a simpler time in my life, a time when sugar was sugar (HFCS? What’s that?), and sugar meant fun. So tomorrow night, yes, I will eat Reese’s. Yes, I will eat Snicker’s. And yes, several mini Milky Ways will get frozen for later consumption. Fresh living? That will have to wait until 11/1.
“You have to have treats,” a friend told me years ago after a successful Weight Watchers experience. I entirely agree. Most of the time, my treats are high-cocoa-content dark chocolate or tea cakes made from whole wheat pastry flour and fresh pumpkin. But the “treat” in “trick-or-treat” does not involve whole wheat pastry flour. It involves tiny chocolate bars, individually wrapped, loaded with the worst, most deliciously naughty “food-like substances” there are.
And so, I wish you all a very happy Halloween. Because we all need treats.
