Hi there cutie, good to see you.
I'm wearing my Troll Sock today, did you notice?
I had to look closer. You are a troll sock. Nice! Would you like a truffle? I brought you one.

I got a Halloween costume the other day. I'll put it on in a couple of weeks. Watch for it.

I'm looking forward to it!

I have a few choices, some Wizard of Oz finger puppets and other things. I'm thinking maybe going as a Lizard as the Lizards of Awes.

I can't make up my mind so I will probably use a few.

Here's a Hersey's with almonds bar to start building your trick or treat bag cutie!

I'm trying to remember what is along that route. I lived in Dayton about 6 months on a work assignment years ago. I don't have a sense of the place as I worked and went 'home' every chance I got as I missed the person I was seeing at the time.

Thank you for the Hershey bar. I brought you some truffles.
