Do drug dealers and mafia take their kids trick-or-treating?

I joke that my neighbors are Russian mafia. I’m sure it’s just a figment of my wild imagination, but I can’t figure out how else to explain the Mazda by day and Mercedes by night, or the fielding of phone calls in a park when there’s nobody else around and the person in question isn’t even with his kids, or why his wife and children would be out walking down the street at 10:30 at night in the middle of the week. So I admit that I was a little surprised to see him out on Halloween taking his adorable little girl (dressed appropriately in satin and tulle with a tiara) trick-or-treating. Go figure. I guess he’s just like any other guy, raising his family and running a really successful trash removal company.

I had a theory that our neighbor in Provo was a Russian prostitute. She worked nights and just had that vibe. Turns out she worked at Smith's grocery store. What is it about Russian's that arouses our suspicions?

And when you say "maffia" and "trash removal" in the same paragraph, are we to infer a very dark metaphor?

Or possibly, we could infer that you know how to spell mafia, and I don't.

Jay thought our next door neighbor was a prostitute. Very fancy car, different men in very fancy cars coming to her house at night - but just usually one car a night. Turns out she's a motivational speaker. Who knew?

kerri: Oh I bet she's motivational all right!

And you survived your sugar fast? I'm sure the past few days have involved a lot of candy eating. I'm proud of you that you made it.

It would appear she is as those cars keep coming. I think it's the same 2 men though. Dad and brother, ya think?

Ok, I know it is crazy, but our "now moved Russian neighbors" I thought were in the car stealing, refurbishing business. Lots of late night work going on. Special knocks to get in throught the front door etc. Turns out he was a carpentar and she a realator. Now the guy up the street who married the phillipino nanny and drove a mercedes, and disappeared in the middle of the night...there was the real deal!!!!

Maybe they are related to the Armenian mafia that lives behind my house...
