So, the most novel dump sites so far are holly water and a small town...
I believe gmonady is mistaken. Thor's brother, Baldr, was killed by mistletoe, not holly.
I see that Ed never got that sense of humour I asked Santa to give him.
Wear the shoes of my life experience and the only "humour" you'll find is on the truck that plys the neighborhood in the summertime or in the freezers of some grocery stores. What's your blood sugar?
by this page my answer will be boring.. but I use a rag if it's handy .. at home.. trash can, sink or rag... if I have people close by and I am talking to them I might just cup my hand around the water key and release it into my palm .. then just non chantley shake it off my hand (pinky out)... sneaky but effective.
You know, I've been emptying horns for about 50 years now (that's a lot of spit/condensation!), and it's not something I usually think about. It seems so natural to just do it, that I never have given too much thought to what the non-playing public must think about it. In addition to how or where to do it, there's a "when" factor, too. While performing with the brass band (and this is good advice for other groups, too), we don't dump the water immediately after the piece ends. No flipping to the next piece, emptying the horn, etc. while the audience is applauding - acknowledge the applause while sitting still, and tend to your dumping/shuffling after the applause dies down.
Hey, during Christmas time it's Holly water. I belong to a "green" congregation of Episcopalians. They are always a creative lot with origins from the Anglican Church, another great idea created by our English brethren.
At the time when we finally do meet, a salute will do just fine.
Oh by golly. Did they have a holly jolly Christmas though?
If you're caught kissin Holly by your wife under the mistletoe... can you really blame the revenge of the murderous wife on the mistletoe... or on Holly
