Listen, save for Shep, I don't put too much eye candy in this here blog.

It's THAT day.  The big gay holiday. 

It's been a long time since I've dressed up for Halloween, and that's ok. If I were more creative, it might be more fun to do so.  For the most part, I am not. 

It's not like we get invited to costume parties - and that is honestly ok. 

I shan't dress up this evening to hand out candy either. The kids might like it if I do. Some of the neighbors might as well. One, Sam, says he has a new costume he'll be sporting when he takes his daughter out. Last year he was a jouster or knight or something.  The dude has a serious Pedro Pascal vibe going on and I'm down with it. 

710 got the candy this year. Most everything has nuts in it, which is great, because I won't eat it. Chinese food should have nuts in it - the rest of foods and desserts and candy, it should not. I get many don't see it my way, but I'm never eating your peanut M&Ms either. 

Last year I posted the below on FB......

Honestly, it has stuck with me ever since. I think about this a lot. 

At the point I got it, the question / post was probably rhetorical. But as I'm guessing I have a post of a post of a post, maybe at some time it was an actual posed question. 

In the original, I can only imagine the small-minded people who would argue such a point. But really - why don't we? 

I used to loathe the 17-19 year olds who'd come up and take candy. You know, if I have enough, what the fuck do I care? Please have some. I hope they enjoy it. I hope they have a good day

Still the above is an incredible life-lesson that applies to most situations in most parts of the world. We could all be more like this - and also be the beneficiaries of this as well.

Great life message, and if you wear the costume above, more people will ring your bell.

I quit handing out treats when practically every child I’m in my neighborhood said they were allergic to chocolate or peanuts . Good luck with peanut M&Ms .
