Local woman Kayla Hall has bought nearly 500 pieces of Halloween candy after “forgetting” that trick-or-treating had been cancelled.

“I was just at Target and saw it so I bought the usual amount,” she told Velvet Hamster. “I wasn’t thinking about COVID. Forgot it was a thing.”

She says that she normally sends any left over candy to work with her husband but, now that he’s working from home, she will have to “find another home for it.” 

Hall appeared to have chocolate on her face and, through a thorough journalistic investigation of her garbage can, we can confirm that she has absolutely already started eating the good stuff. Nerds may be all that are left by Halloween.
