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.
