Wow! Talk about time moving at a different pace! Wasn’t it just last week we were all gleefully ripping off the wrappings of all our way cool holiday score?

And the idea that if they don’t give in to your demands for the sugar coated confection, you can turn around and “trick” them in practically any way you wish. Ya gotta love America. As a friend of mine recently said, “this is the only country where we teach our children not to talk to strangers and then we take them door to door begging for candy.” Realistically, that’s as dumb as the letter “Q”.
