Halloween was a few days ago. I did have a number of school-aged children dressed up in their favorite character or monster to greet me with “trick-o-treat” at my door step. There were a good number of these trick-o-treaters, to deplete my supply of treats(reese’s peanut butter cups) that I had to run to the store and buy more.
I’ve never wrote a post about my roommates take on Halloween. Do I expect them to answer the door? Do I expect them to stock up Halloween candy? Do I expect them to decorate the front door?
These are unforeseen questions when roommates move-in. We tend to ask questions that are habitual in nature instead of their enthusiasm for a particular holiday or event. What I can say for sure is that despite the lack of inquiries regarding specific scenarios like answering the door to trick-o-treaters, my roommates have never showed any unwillingness.
I generally try and buy a few bags of candy before Halloween day so that my roommates don’t have to spend their own resources, after all, it is my residence. Some of my past roommates have taken it upon themselves to buy bags of candy. I’m not surprised or taken back by their action. We were all kids at one point and by celebrating Halloween; we’re simply giving back to the next generation of kids. I think my roommates feel the same way and don’t have any issues with answering the doorbell to the “trick-o-treaters.”
I’m trying to close on a mortgage right now and been kind of annoyed by the amount of paperwork I need to provide to my bank. I’m looking forward to the end of the week, which is when I’m slated to close. If this drags on any further… I’m going to have find someway to keep my cool.
