Hey everyone, Halloween is around the corner – puke. For the past week, I believe you have had this fact thrown to your face – either at work or during commercials, we have all been reminded that it’s that time of the year.
Halloween is fast becoming the new Christmas for adults. Parents look at Christmas with dread because of all the “gifts” and mandatory events which they have to grace as hosts or attendees. Halloween is the other way round, stuff your kids into hideous (itchy) costumes and push them out into the neighborhood to plead for candy all the while using the opportunity to have some “quality” time with your spouse. And ohh, don’t forget that you get to decide which candy they eat (with you consuming the rest when they are asleep).
At work, you get to tryout that new costume you’ve been fantasizing about (I once had a guy come to work dressed as Dick Butkus). For those couples who decide to indulge themselves, they can still head out for Halloween parties where they get to take pictures for their Facebook profiles – all for a semblance of a life that they convince themselves can still be fun after taking the plunge.
It is the last time, adults tend to be kids before the downhill obstacle course that is the festive season.
On a side note, word has it that Ebola hazmat costumes are available and can be purchased for a token fee.
