    Today’s strip is entitled “Why Teachers Hate November 1.”

    I learned as a kid, that after a couple of sweets on a mildly empty stomach, I actually DID feel sick. How many 10 y/o’s do you know that actually agree with their folks when they say one piece a night after dinner?

    Ah, the post-Halloween sugar rush.

    LOL!! So true! :-) I think they cheer when Halloween is on a Friday or Saturday night.

    Our six- and ten-year-old got sick, too, after eating too many sweets. (The twelve- and fifteen-year-old didn’t indulge that much.) And, true, NObody ever agreed on the one-piece-per-night rule. Now that the six-year-old can get stuff from the top of the fridge with a grabber, nothing is safe!

    Oh, is Jan ever going to get polite notes from at least some of those brands for not using the proper trademark symbols.

    Sugar is a powerful narcotic. Take it in small doses. This is a good way to mess up your metabolism and find out if you are diabetic or not.

    Have you, yourself ever said, “I think I’ll have a Reese’s Cup,” only to be flagged by some copyright lawyer?

    BobBlumenfeld, no she won’t. You can reference the name of an item without getting sued for trademark violation. And I seriously doubt that Hershey’s wants to file a lawsuit against a friggin cartoonist and get that kind of bad press.

    I estimate that if I allowed my kids only 1 piece a night, they would still be eating Halloween candy at Easter. I allow 3 pieces at a time, up to 4 times a day. After the first week they can fill a quart sized bag with the part of their plunder they get to keep. The remainder goes away (usually to work).

    My one-year old granddaughter took her first steps yesterday when her 4 year old brother dumped his Halloween haul on the coffee table! She saw the goods and just hussled over to grab a share! True, and so funny!!
