Tales From Podex: Trick or Treat
During a break in their talking, their attention was drawn to the door. They saw not one visitor, but two. One was noticeably much smaller than the other. He was wearing a small white sheet over his head, and had a bag in his hand.
"Trick or treat!" the smaller visitor greeted the tellers.
The tellers saw this and chuckled, "Happy Halloween," they greeted back.
"Hyuk. Y'all 'll hafta pardun mah nephew," the taller visitor told the tellers, "He insistud thar'd be treats heah, not jest th' houses 'round heah."
"Booooooo!" the younger visitor went, "I'm a ghost."
"Not a problem Sir," one teller told him, "we're prepared for any eventuality," and he held out some lollipops.
"Weeee!" The youth went over to collect his prize.
The older visitor looked around, "Mebe as long as ahum heah, I should git me some more'o them thar Lindens."
"How 'bout jess good 'ol Uh-mericn' dollars?"
Certainly Sir, just sign these forms and you'll be all set."
It didn't take long for the paperwork to be long, and the cash was exchanged.
"Thanks fellers," the customer told them, "Ah guess we'll be on our way, hyuk."
"Certainly Sir, hope you both have a Happy Halloween."
"We will!" the younger visitor told them, "My neighbor's told me this place had a lot of 'spirit,' so I came trick or treating as a ghost."
They all had a good chuckle, and the visitors went on their way.
