smoked mussels halloween

we had no trick-or-treaters last night. 

which is good since we had no candy. 

we agreed if any trick or treaters showed up we would put a handful of smoked mussels in their bag. 

can you imagine a worse treat than smoked mussels? weird color. weird smell. weird texture. full of crap. their smoky fish oil would get all over the candy in your bag. 

my late great grandfather named flops ran out of candy one halloween and put a meatball wrapped in paper towels into the kids bags, pulling out some of their candy to give to the next kid as he did so.

I have no doubt your grandfather "Flops" would have died laughing if he knew you did that. He was quite the model. I think he did things like that just to amuse himself. I can envision him laughing like mad when he did his meatball trick. If even no one else knew it wouldn't have mattered to him. He was his biggest fan, although we were right behind him.
