hi, i currently live in darien, and just thought i'd give my two cents to the world at large, so far, the closest definition i've read is number 7. yes, there are those in darien who are rich, and then there are those who live in government substidized housing, aka allen o'neil area... yes, we also have the preppies, which are in reality the greater 75% of the kids who attend our public schools. These kids do drive their nice ass SUV"s to school, with their popped collars and their blasting crappy rap music (not that rap music sucks, they just have shitty taste). In reference to drugs, the kids in darien simply put get ripped the f*** off. They pay exorburant amounts for drugs that proably aren't what' they're being told they're getting, and sure as hell aren't the weight they're being quoted as given. That being said, darien teens can hold their alchohol, they know how to drink, and they drink alot. I know plenty of kids i go to school with who start off their morning routine with a couple shots of vodka and a swig or two of whiskey, it's sad to be honest, the amount of alchohl that these kids drink. To finish off my tweaking rant about this crappy town, all i can say is that NO it is not a good place to raise your kids. We do have good education, but if you ever want your kid to be happy or fulfilled with his or her life, do not, i repeat, do not settle down here. you will regret it when your kid goes to brown on a lacrosse scholarship only to get kicked out for cocaine use. and yes, it's true, the only thing the cops have to do around here is bust teenage drinking parties, if anyone from darien reads this, you'll know of a particular story that occured at the beginning of 2005 school year, pertaining to a certain for sale house. tragically, as a result of said incident, the only reallly cool person in darien was forced to move to new york. bummer, anyway, peace
an example of a typical darien high school male:
the average high school male will probably be a member of the DHS football team, which really really sucks, also, odds say that he will play hockey in the winter, and lacrosse in the spring. This guy will lift weights, but only his arms and chest, as he sees no reason to do anything else, and he'll pick on little freshman, even though most freshman are cooler than any senior. On the weekends, he'll go tanning at the toekeneke tanning salon... cause he's so macho with his "huge" biceps. After a good afternoon of fake tanning, him and his new orange skin will drive his rimmed out SUV to his friends mcmansion to get piss drunk and pass out.
