Trick or Treat (emphasis on the treat!)

As you know, I love Trick-or-Treaters. I anxiously await at the front door to get a glimpse of the kids. I wear my pumpkin shirt and I am always a hit with the neighborhood. This year, we went out with Brandon and Belen. There were some scary costumes and some cute ones too. Hopefully Brandon will leave his bag out so I can grab some treats for myself.

Taking Requests

Dear Brandon,

Molly and I really appreciate the way you always think to share your food and snacks with us. We don't even have to beg, and you oblige us with some goodies. It is convenient for us, that you prefer to eat your puffs while standing at the coffee table. Occassionally, I will jump right up and grab one for myself--if you are a little slow to offer--but usually you are right on top of things. You are always fair in your distribution. Ordinarily, it is tough for me to compete with Molly, since she is the food motivated Bugg of this bunch. But you always practice your "One for you, one for you, and one of me" approach. Perfect!

Although we are most appreciative of your tendency to share with us, I have to admit, I am getting kind of tired of mango flavored puffs, gold fish crackers, and cheerios. Are you open to taking requests? Why don't we try chunks of beef, peanut butter snacks, or shreded chicken? Maybe scrambled eggs? Hey, Buggs like chicken fried rice too. Just a gentle suggestion.
Very truly yours,

The People of the State of California vs. Bugsy Charlemagne Roach and Molly Ann Roach

Count 1
a violation of Penal Code section 594, subdivision (a), a FELONY, in that on or about January 2007 to October 2010, in the County of Riverside, State of California, they did willfully, unlawfully, and maliciously damage and destroy property that was not his/her own.

That's right! The destruction in our house has to risen to criminal proportions. Molly and I are facing some serious allegations so my lawyer advised me to write a formal apology, in hopes of a civil compromise in lieu of criminal sanctions.

We Buggs have destroyed the following property, not belonging to us:

  • Flip flops--both mom and dads--multiple pairs

  • Eye Glasses--3 pairs

  • Grandpa Hal's dress shoes

  • Boppy covers--3 of them

  • Baby toys--too many to count

  • Ottoman

  • Carpet

  • Couch

  • Mail--too much to count

  • Photographs

  • Magazines

  • Grass in the backyard exposing the sprinklers

  • Potted plants

  • Rugs

  • Pillows

  • Burp cloths

  • bibs

  • electrical cords

Although I submit that Molly is behind most of this destruction (see photographic evidence attached hereto), I admit that I am an occassional accomplice, or at least, an accessory after the fact. Molly and I agree to pay our fair share of kisses and cuddles in exchange for leniency.
Respectfully submitted, Bugsy Charlemagne Roach
