Around 8:30, after having been closed up for a while, I headed out for a burrito and encountered a group of seven hardy 13-to-14-year-old trick-or-treaters; they went so far as to ring our doorbell after hitting the next door neighbors who were one of two houses still open on the block. They're not included in the statistics. Sorry, kids, but it's not just that we were out. Halloween was over.
