    To "take the high road" is to maintain impeccable integrity, honesty and decorum. To take "the low road" is less than that.

    You also don't want to be high-handed. But depending on your tastes, you could be highbrow or lowbrow.:D

    Interestingly enough, it's also a "head shop" here in San Diego.

    Yes indeed, Loch Lomond! While traditional, I believe The Corries to perform the best version.

    You take the high road, and I'll take the low road, and I'll get to Scotland before yeee.

    It's the way to China.

    At least if Tom Selleck is flying.
    It's moral integrity. Always seek The High Road. Taking it every time requires courage.

    When I was a little boy, I thought my parents didn't allow me into the head shop because they didn't want me to see all the heads they had for sale.

    Man, was I disapointed. There wasn't a single head to be found. Just a bunch of bongs and roach clips.

    :neener: :evil:

    Lordy, I haven't even seen a head shop in decades.

    Bongs are paraphenalia, water pipes on the other hand...:rolleyes:
