While at the gas station this morning I saw that one guy. That one guy that makes you happy that it’s daytime. That one guy you see and think to yourself, “God I’m glad there are other people around”. That guy you see that makes you happy you’re over the age of 18, which is obviously out of his sexual preference for demographics.
When I saw him I instantly thought, “Huh, that would make a great Halloween costume.” Only instead of going to parties or trick-or-treating as that guy, just sit on the porch, pants unzipped, and the bowl of candy in my lap. Instantly after I had this thought, I reminded myself that there is a big difference between dressing up as a sex offender, and actually partaking in sex offender-like activities.
Lesson from this story, Halloween costumes are a gateway. First you’re dressing up as a sex offender. The next thing you know, you’re playing the popcorn trick with a bag of candy on little 6 year old Susie. Don’t dress up as anything you aren’t prepared to turn into.
