  • O.T. ate a pound of chocolate and now i feel sick...

    Who else goes through this around halloween? you buy candy for the kids just in case any show because god forbid you sure don't want to be that person that does not have any candy if someone knocks,

    admittedly - you don't advertise that your at home kinda in hopes that you get to hoard all the candy to yourself cuz your the last of 8 kids in your family and it kinda triggers a selfish response but something you needed to stay alive when you were younger... yet now I think it's going to end up killing me... crazy times...

    We buy enough to feed about 200 kids. We usually have 30 to 50 groups show up. Obviously we have some left over. To save our health we take the leftovers to the senior center and bowling alley.
    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

    Location: SF East Bay.

        Your face must hurt the next day from smiling at all the kids all night - I just don't have any self control with chocolate hanging around the house even for just one day - it's all going to get "et" and im going to be sick - it's like a disease in itself -and im sure will create one if it happened allot...

            when i was in the usmc in 2006-11, i was in boot camp around the tail end of some weird **** that was going on. basically the drill instructors knew the writing was on the wall regarding all the restrictions coming down the pipeline.

            my platoon started at 97, graduated 63 iirc. that wasn't normal. anyhow. they let us receive gifts and **** for Christmas because we were there from oct through dec. they told us explicitly all candy would be confiscated. one of the drill instructors fell sorry for us i guess.. let us call home on his personal cell phone, like 6 people per night, 10 minutes each. instructions were: whoever called him back, that recruit got crucified and that would cut off the rest of the group cell phone privileges.

            so, as luck would turn out, someone by the last name of name of Avery got a 5 pound bag of chocolate covered peanuts in the mail.. and he was also one of the first to call home on DI's cellphone. the next day Avery's Gf called the DI back. so guess who got to eat the entire 5 pound back of chocolate mm's that night? yeah, he didn't feel good the next day. probably a damn miracle didn't end up in the hospital.

              That stuff they sell for handing out to the trick-or-treat crowd isn't chocolate.... it's diluted with waxes and stuff to cheapen it (not that they charge less). it doesn't even taste right, although the kids don't notice that.

              I guess it technically is edible...... but I'd not be surprised it might make a person sick.

              It's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there.

                      This is the start of the year end weight gain, You eat all the left over candy. Next, Thanksgiving with all the pies and goodies. Then come Christmas with candies, tin-can bread, and more pies, January comes your 10 pounds over weight and you think about going to the gym. You pause, and say I think I will lay down until that thought passes.

                        Halloween came and went here without any notice, since we don't celebrate it. We have a similar tradition but on easter. To be honest I am glad we don't got Halloween and Thanksgiving, too many stressful holidays right infront of christmas. I am glad for the breather.

                          I took the kids into town to walk around my Dad's old neighborhood. The houses are too far apart compared to the new subdivisions in town so the kids don't even bother with them. Dad only had 16. I stopped at another friend of the families around the corner for a visit and they had 3 (my 2 included). The kids had fun, got a good loot bag, and I got to explain to the kids about twix tax. It's fun watching the kids get excited and be kids.

                          We live out in the country on a dead end road. I'd be surprised if we ever had kids show up at our place. It would be a long walk for a chocolate bar.

                            MY partner solved my problem.!

                            Judy made me give her the box of 100 candies I bought for Halloween, she hid the box till just about 6 pm, gave candy to the kids, gave me a few bars and then hid the rest again. I guess I get a tiny candy bar every day till they are finished. Maybe if I were keener about housework I would find them by accident, but I hear my workshop calling out to me whenever I am not there !!!!. and housework takes a poor second place, Regards David Powell.

                              I can say no to the first piece of chocolate; but only to the first one (had the same problem with alcohol years ago). I will eat a whole bag of chocolate when it is around.

                              So, this year I got a box of 200 Tootsie Pops to give away. The rain came and only 5 kids showed up. I can eat 1 or 2 Tootsie pops and not want to eat the rest. No real chocolate there.
