A cocktail? I would need a 2 gallon bucket full to go around some of these kids.Borrowed from a friend of a friend on FB:
"Halloween Rain Update, borrowed from another page...
“Rain on Halloween will not kill your child. Most children will still be delighted to strut in their costumes and fill their buckets with candy. Will it be cold and wet and annoying, yes! Is it going to be super annoying if it’s pouring rain, of course! What would your mom have done on October 31st, 1984? She would have either trailed behind you in the station wagon to stay dry (while possibly smoking with the windows rolled up and sipping on a wine cooler) while you trick-or-treated in the rain, or you would have headed out together with umbrellas. Or, if you had an 80’s version of a Pinterest mom she would have made a poncho out of a garbage bag, threw it over your costume and sent you on your way. Tomorrow I’ll pull on my rain boots, grab an umbrella and mix myself a nice cocktail and slosh around the neighborhood with my kids. Once they are soaked to the bone we will go home and then I will eat all their KitKats and Snickers. They will have fun. I will get chocolate. So listen Karen, please stop asking the city to reschedule Trick-or-Treating and parent like it’s the 80’s for just one night. Happy Halloween! ”
