On the day after Trick-or-Treat night — that is, today — you can always count on finding Halloween candy by the office coffee station.
And all of us know, too, exactly how the internal spousal conversation that produced the candy cornucopia went. “We bought too much candy, again.” “I don’t want it around the house — I’ll just eat it.” “Take it to the office and get rid of it!” And across America, from sea to shining sea, huge amounts of leftover Halloween candy was tastefully displayed by the office coffee pot and then gobbled down, surreptitiously, by legions of famished co-workers. Watch out! If you’re not quick on your feet, you might miss out — or lose a hand reaching for one of the coveted pieces of chocolate goodness.
On our floor, I think we went though four different collections of leftover Halloween candy that included Butterfingers, Reese’s Cups, Whoppers, and other high-end chocolate confections. I particularly liked this bat-themed, Scooby Doo character bowl, which perhaps lasted for five minutes before being emptied.
