A few years back while handing out candy to a thousand kids, a guy with a wooden case strapped to his chest walked up and said “reverse trick or treat for grownups!

Kids are sparse in my area so when a couple of trick-or-treaters surprised me last year all I had was some Colts Bolts. The kids were thrilled. Fortunately they were also my only visitors.


you mentioned " Hershey bars with candy corn in them" which implies chocolate embedded with CC, but in reality, it is just a candy corn-flavored bar made by Hershey - no chocolate is involved.


Wine gives me a migraine. Good thing there’s vicodin and mint juleps.


I would happily take a mint julep or an old fashioned as a substitute.


Why would they even do that?


beats me!
