LOL - afriend of mine in NJ and I were just e-mailing and he commented that he had to remember to pick up beer for the trick or treating parents tonight. He said a solo cup and a wagon means they want beer.:D
Somewhere in here is a joke or pun about being off the wagon.

He's been on his high and mighty horse lately. Maybe his hangover's wearing off.

I've seen that around my neighborhood too. I dunno, I think drinking while you're taking you're kids trick or treating is kinda low brow and tacky.

I may have miss-read your post. I took your comment to mean that the cultures that do those things are sad, as in a sorry example of how to treat the dead.

My horse is high and mighty, and he will grind you under his hooves like so much dirt on the path beneath him.

Who said anything about driving? Walking the streets drinking beer from a solo cup while you're with your kids? Low brow.

That would be the "fancy cups", which make it high brow. If the were drinking from the Mason jars, that would be low brow.

I'd be drinking too, if I had to deal with sugared-up hoardes of children all night.

The photo of a two year old little girl, dressed up and dead on a velvet draped fainting couch, is pretty damn sad.....in any culture....not a matter of any type of judgement....

Here! Here!
Although, technically, there is newer research on candy and kids being hyper. It's not as accurate as we've been led to believe.
I've never noticed an issue behavior-wise; only that they bring it to school, lol.
I gave them candy today.

And after dealing with 130 strangers' kids, I never give candy tonight. Lights off; leave me alone!

In other news, my ex asked me out last night!
The one from church I broke up with in 2007, right before my bro's accident.
He left me a rose, pumpkin, note, and candy car on my front porch today....ack...not feeling it.
I have anotger dude I'm interested in but he needs to pursue a wee harder. Texting a few lines every other day isn't cutting it.

Stopped raining here. Blew through twelve bags of candy. Then I handed out the Dcon! After that was gone, started giving out bottles of beer.

Every dam year...

Thought you loath texting?? And as we (men) get older, we just ain't gonna waste our time with a gal playing "hard to get." So some friendly advice and food for thought, quit making him "chase" you.

And as always, I'm still here once you realize you can't do any better and might as well give up and settle....
