Abner's Candy

Post by PhineasQP » Wed Jan 30, 2013 3:51 am

Abner cursed his increasing senility; tonight was Halloween and he’d nearly forgotten to poison the candy.

Although he'd secretly killed many neighborhood pets during his wretched ninety-six years, he'd never quite satisfied his murderous urges. But children? Oh, the very idea made him swoon. So he sat painstakingly tainting and re-wrapping each caramel until the bowl was full. After shelving the poison in the garage he paused, suddenly confused. What had he left the house for…?

Returning inside, he remembered that tonight was something important. Some… celebration? Abner decided to enjoy a little candy while he pondered.
What the what?
