We reeeeeaaaalllly like Halloween at 822!
Mr. Prom King circa 1975
(I'm thinking he's kind of diggin' that wig
I know I am)

So we invite a few folks over to help us give out treats
this year...hubs has the clever idea to give away

uh huh...

each little spook will get their very own cup with their very own fish

with no lid...hehehehe
(you might be surprised to know that minnows/gold fish are a mere 13 cents at Pet Smart)

So this inspired me..the serve

a shot we first enjoyed at 
Texas A&M University Ring Dunk
this is where your brilliant graduate drops her senior ring into a pitcher of beer and guzzles it until she has the ring in her teeth...age old tradition...followed by a celebration at the Chicken Shot Bar for all proud parents to pick one out, put one down and say

In case you happen to be wondering about MY costume favorite part is either the basket on top of my head
or my fishing pole!
because I am
 A Pissed Off Japanese Minnow Farmer 
because about 1/2 of those cheap minnows are
shall we say....dead...hey...funny trick...a dead minnow

1/2 oz vodka

Mix all the alcohol except the Midori and equal parts of sweet sour mix and cranberry juice to fill the glass. Shake and serve over ice with the Midori added to the top of the glass. A cherry makes it look pretty if that matters to you.
