Trick Arrrr Treat!

This entry is to state that sure, kids are great, but what really counts is my counterpart, Laura. If you don't have someone to experience life with, which includes getting sloshed at a fun-ass Halloween party, you're missing out.

I don't think it's fair to force my kids to miss out on Halloween. I already keep them out of school... I also let them watch TV, and movies!! Heaven forbid.
