If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
If I had my way, I'd be off to Sacramento to birdog Big Brother and Li'l Teeny and maybe steal some o' their haul.
It's fun to go out with the kids. I remember doin' that rather fondly.
I'd go with "or not." :-). But don't take my advice. We live way off the road behind some dark and scary trees. And we haven't had a little spook up here in the last 15 years. We do sometimes buy some candy. Just in case. Which we eat. Which is really why we bought it in the first place.
I got my very first trick-or-treaters since I've been in P-Ville last year and last year was the FIRST year I was empty-handed. I may go to the store or I may not.
I honestly had forgotten what night it was, until I read this, so thanks for the wake-up call. I shall now steel myself for the 5 or 6 kids who straggle to our door. They shall be rewarded with 2 or 3 treats each because even the one bag of goodies we bought is way too much.
I didn't buy any candy and that's a good thing: no one came by.
As long as your lazy ass is into re-posting old columns, I don't understand why you don't re-post my comments about my all-time Halloween "fright-nite." in Lafayette, La. (He said sulking at thought of a good story gone untold... :) )
Ahem. Two things. First: Blogger won't let me search comments, so I have no way of knowing exactly when you posted your glorious tale. I'd have to look at a week's worth o' posts on either side o' Halloween to find the comment and I'm not sure I'm ready to do that. Well, Hell... I KNOW I'm not ready to do that.Second: I made you an offer a while back which you didn't accept. Had you accepted said offer, well... ;-)
"America is full of illiterates"Which explains the wording of the Thanksgiving pledge button. One cannot pledge "to not" anything, although one can pledge "not to shop". But it was probably wrote by an Englishman!
I'm sure that's not the ONLY grammatical error you could find at EIP. I do manage to avoid the really blatant ones, I think.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
