Like many stores on Halloween, we were giving out small hard candies to children who came in with their parents. It was only an hour until closing, and a fair amount of fairies, zombies, superheros and goblins had paraded in and out of the store loaded with sugar and excitement.
"Do ya have candy here?"
I turned to see a short, African-American boy standing in front of me. He had on suspenders, thick glasses taped in the middle, a shirt pocket full of pens, and a bow tie. Best costume I had seen of the night!
"Well of course we do!" I smiled at him "Are you Steve Urkle?"
Immediately his parents nearly collapsed to the ground in laughter while he he exclaimed "No! Who is that? I didn't even dress up!"
Shoot me now. SHOOT ME NOW. After turning four shades of red, I grabbed an associate to help them with their order while I hid behind the counter for the rest of the evening.
