Every Day is Scary
Last night, my estimate of the crowd was 80,000. The street was packed from the freeway, all the to the warehouse district. But it wasn't full of intoxicated revelers and their like, we saw small children dressed up as cows and devils and even a few grandmothers and grandpops.
Almost everyone was taking pictures of everyone.
Sure, it probably got a little hairy towards the "nobody is out now but the drunks" hour, but we were walking well after midnight and it all seemed pretty reasonable.
The highlight of the evening was when someone thought my partner was in her Sarah Palin outfit. Until that time, we were pretty certain that we weren't in costume.
Towards the end of the evening, after passing a bag of french fries, and the gingerbread man, who was a little upset that we thought he was the cookie monster, I stared at a silver fire plug. There was a living smokeshop indian on one side and a parade of characters walking on the other side.
And it occured to me that maybe this is the way it should be.
We are all in our little costumes anyway.
Why not go on and make Halloween permanent. The work place could enjoy the variety and life in general would be a lot more interesting.
Besides, every day is scary these days..
I guess there is some wisdom with following "all hallows eve",
with All Saint's Day.
