Halloween Night (in a liberal college town)

Yea!  Halloween!

Not so much here.  I observed NO trick-or-treaters in my late afternoon-early evening travels.  None.  And none came to the door.

(Granted, we didn’t have the porch light turned on, and it might have appeared as if we weren’t home!)

A friend in a busy Chicago suburb reported to me she had 5 (five) kids between the government-mandated times of 5 to 7 PM.  Five.  It’s very sad how ‘they’ have ruined Halloween.

SO, my roommate said she was coming home from work, and called and asked I pick up dinner @ a nearby Subway.  It’s a half mile away, so that’s no big deal.  I went in, and one of the people behind the counter was dressed for the holiday (even though there was a sign asking all patrons to remove masks if they had them – irony impaired, no doubt!)

And the Subway guy was dressed as…..Che’ Guevara!  Fatigues, boots, fake beard, beret.

I ordered and received my sandwiches (which were quite yummy, BTW!), but on my way out, I couldn’t help but comment to Che’:

“Hey Che’.  You are quite scary for Halloween.  Che’s was a bigot and a murderer.  You might think of him at Hitler on a smaller scale.  Would you have dressed as Hitler?”

Then I left.  Hopefully, he wiki’ed Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara later and rethought his choice of costume.

BTW FTC – I paid for my sandwiches!

  1. I suspect the irony was lost on “Che”.

  2. Yep, he either didn’t get it, or actually BELIEVES Che was a ‘good’ person…

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
