The year I moved into this neighborhood, I invited to a baby shower for a woman on the next street a few days after Halloween. Since the neighborhood was new construction, we all moved in at approximately the same time and were "new neighbors."
I thought that a baby shower was a perfect way for us to get to know each other. I remember talking to some of the women that night and saying that I had really "screwed up" on Halloween. They seemed confused and asked "What does that mean?"
I exclaimed, "I forgot to hold back any Mounds!"
The next day, my doorbell rang and my neighbor Mona was standing there with a small Ziploc bag full of Mounds. I have loved living here ever since.
Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
