Why is it not okay for adults to trick-or-treat?

I was just thinking about this on my way home from the store, but why is it sort of un-said, but frowned upon for adults to trick or treat? Shouldn't anyone be able to dress up and enjoy the holiday?

Getting the smoke smell out of a house.

Hello my very informative friends!

There is a house on the market that I am interested in but the previous owners were smokers.

Has anyone had the experience of getting the smell out? From what I read, I would have to rip out all the carpet and repaint the walls.

If nothing can get it 100% out I have accepted that this house might not be for me and have to move on. I have nothing against smokers but the smell triggers my migraines.

Why no Chik Fil A near?

There is one in PA, but why not closer? Honestly, you can not get a better fast food chicken sandwich -- and I've tried most of them. Their chicken nuggets, spicy chicken sandwich, fries, drinks... honestly everything on their menu is to die for.
