Trick Or Drinking

Growing up, my dad started a new 'tradition' around the neighborhood called Trick or Drinking. He would follow us to the houses (with a shot glass in hand) and after we asked for our candy and left, he would ring the bell and ask for a 'trick or drink'. Apparently this went over well with the men in the neighborhood and within a few houses he had quite the following.

Mind you this is in the days when cell phones were not around! So, word must have traveled fast!

I kinda remember mom being pissed, though she would never show it in front of us. I happily say that I carry on his tradition. So to all of you today I say "trick or drink" whatever your poison may be. Mine..... take a guess. I am curious to what my readers think would be in my shot glass.....

I'll tell you next Friday.


  1. What a fun idea! Back in the day my dad used to put cans of beer in his jacket pockets and have a beer or two when he walked us around the neighborhood for Trick-or-Treat.

  2. I wonder if I could work this into our Halloween next year. No wait, we already did. I had a martini with me when we passed out candy in the cul-de-sac last night. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
