I am sorry I neglected to pick up candy this year. However, the fact that my porch light is off tonight means I will not be answering my door, no matter how much pounding and yelling you do. Screaming "Hey, you got trick-or-treaters out here" makes me want to open the door even less.
I am nursing myself through my first bloody nose of the season, I am tired, I just got off work, and I am hiding from you. Go away.

Seriously, does no one teach their kids Halloween porch light etiquette these days? For shame!
