In the course of two hours, we and our Halloween party guests took turns handing out every single one of the apples. Only twelve individual 12-year-olds declined. Many parents wanted one for themselves. And they thanked us from the bottom of their hearts. Approximately 1 in 10 people took a bite of their apple within ten steps. Not a single person asked if they had been washed (they hadn’t.) Little children turned to their parents and exclaimed in delight, “Look! I got an apple!”
The office naysayers who told us we would come in the next day with 550 apples were wrong! So next year, perhaps you should consider doing the same thing on your front stoop. If you do, let us know.
