Since my kiddies are all growd up I miss roaming the streets with them during this occasion. I volunteered to chaperone my niece and nephew's clan this year to get my fix of festivities. Apparently I have missed out on a growing trend among the younger set including the mommies!
Is it just me or is the trend to see how slutty and revealing one can get away with in public has now become the norm for ladies and young women on this most childlike of celebrations?
Case #1: Approaching this one house there was a large gathering of parents (mostly the guys) monitoring the distribution of treats to their young ones. As we arrived I saw the reason. Handing out the treats, both the sweet kind and visual, was none other than Wonder Woman! The Wonder Bra (it said so in Sharpie on the front) was in fact golden in color. However it was not so opaque nor of ample material size to not allow visual inspection. I stopped and evaluated the situation determining this was OK. Took me at least five minutes to figure this out! Then another revelation at the same location. Out from the front door bounds her daughter all dressed up in an extremely fabric lacking halter top and Daisy Duke shorts going to a party with her friends. At this point the group of guys I was around just dropped their jaws in amazement at their good fortune of visual delights. Then one of the guys says for all of us to hear "We better move on before we get in real trouble". I lingered just a few more minutes to make sure the kids all remained safe.
Case #2: I returned home around 8:30 or so. A few groups of kids came and went. Approximately 9:00 I hear the cackle of youngsters approaching the door. I get the candy dish. As I viewed the next group it seemed to be a group of young lady friends enjoying the evening together. I quickly scanned the group and there was this young lady with most of her upper assets on display. My hands were shaking so bad I couldn't hardly divy up the treats as I knew I had just been tricked.
Getting tough on this old man are the holidays I tell you! There were other numerous examples of fishnet stocking (and top) witches, a couple handcuffed together escorting their kids (need to remember that one as the cuffs were fur lined), and more than a few stripper dressed types. Damn, I forgot my camera too!
