that I tried to bribe my yahoos
with a bucket full of candy?
Last night was the the Trunk R' Treat at church.
I had worked all day
and it was BRRRR-freakin' cold outside--
like 28o-freakin' cold--
so when I came home
alls I really wanted to do
was eat dinner (it was a delicious chicken cordon bleu by Jen)
crawl out of my work clothes
and into my fleecy pj's,
grab the remote and a cup of hot cocoa
But I knew it would take
to get the yahoos on board with my warm n' lazy idea:
I offered up the whole huge bucket (it's actually a black plastic witches' cauldron)
that we'd filled with halloween candy for the Trunk R' Treat--
I offered it all up,
to be divided equally among the 3 yahoos
we could just skip out on Trunk R Treat this year.
I've been going to Trunk R' Treats for well over two decades.
And And And
our ward doesn't even do the Chili Cook-Off!
They did not accept my bribe
no way, no how.
It was worth a shot, right?
