Fink, you still crack me up !
Some years back, my Brother-in-Law decided he was going to get married again (in Las Vegas), and asked me to be his best man. I agreed (hot future Sister in Law), and asked him the date of the wedding. He told me that it was on Halloween, and I told him that I had to change my answer to No! Why not he asked. My answer: First of all, only a damn fool would get married in Las Vegas on Halloween. Who is doing the wedding, an Elvis impersonator in a Halloween costume? This has to be a bad omen. More importantly, you must have lost your mind to expect me to miss half of the second split of Colorado Elk Season to be at a wedding!!! Much hue and cry from the family members, but they did get married on Halloween in Las Vegas with no best man. I went to Colorado solo (more flakes!), and killed an Elk on his wedding day that was uphill from the truck! I celebrated the elk and his wedding with a good steak and a bottle of good red wine. Some years later, they got divorced (see-bad omen), but the elk is still dead.
