We're Famous! (Not Really)
A local dentist in town "buys back" Halloween candy. He pays you $1 for every pound of candy that you bring to his office during a designated time and then donates it to some kind of charity. Well, today was the day. I somehow (and it wasn't too hard...I don't know if that's good or bad) talked Addie and Matt into selling their candy. They, of course, went through it and picked out their favorites, and then we took the rest to sell. When we pulled up, I'm not sure if we were the first ones there or what. But the parking lot was empty except for the dentist and his staff, and 3 cameramen. We were instantly a hit! They videoed us parking, getting out of the car, Addie and Matt fighting over who was going to carry the bag, weighing in, collecting our money, getting back in the car, pulling out of the parking lot...the whole entire process. So, I assume we will be on NBC, ABC, and CBS news tonight. How funny is that! Well, the result....$5. We sold 5 lbs of candy, and that's after eating some and picking some out to keep!!! Not too bad for an afternoon of fun!
