Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for October 31, 2004
Manny: Look at this haul! 3 kids, half an hour! This rocks! Ivy: No, Seth! Wait! Eve: When I was little, we'd be out for 3 hours, and we wouldn't get half this much. Manny: Back then you got one piece of candy per house...Eve: And now, you get heaping handfuls everywhere! Manny: Everything was smaller back then. Fries, drinks, candy bars, nothing was super-sized. Eve: We had no VCRs! Limited kids programming! Kids today have computers! Play Station! We had Pong! Man, kids today are so lucky. Manny: Dig in, kids, candy's fine. 3 pieces only! Ivy: So you guys only got one piece of candy per house?! Why, that's barely worth the trip up to the door! Manny: ...They're fat, diabetic, lazy little sloths with no imagination to speak of, but they sure are lucky! Hey, hey!
