The night before Halloween in Northern NJ is called many things.
In our town most call it Cabbage Night.
All the kids in town go out after dark and create mischief. Most of it is harmless and you really can't get mad. My kids used to wait in our bushes and try to catch whomever would dare attempt to toilet paper our house or soap our cars. I have been known to point a hose at a large group of mischief makers. ( all in fun, really!)
And I am quite positive that my children have papered houses and wrote with shaving cream on neighbors sidewalks. We do draw the line on eggs, too destructive. We made them travel in a group and they had a curfew.
I have to report that this year may be different. I found the note below taped to my door last night.I am wondering if I should be concerned or give Andrew (whoever he is) props for taking advantage of the opportunity.
Are you picturing what I am?
A mini Tony Soprano, who for a certain amount of money ($5) will protect us from mischief and mayhem?
Or a cute boy with garbage bags, sponges and mops cleaning up the next morning?
Remember, we live in Northern NJ folks...
