Conversation with a bird about Halloween costumes
“Hello good bird, what do you plan to wear for Halloween,” I asked.
“Feathers,” the bird replied.
“You wear feathers every day.”
“That’s because I’m a bird every day.”
“Would you want to wear a costume?”
I paused, searching for a practical answer.
“What are you going to wear on Halloween?” the bird asked.
“I’m going to dress up as an old man.”
“You’re already an old man.”
“Actually, I’m a 4-year old. I just look like an old man.”
“So why would you want to look like an old man?”
“It’s what I am when I wake up.”
“Then why would you want to be a 4-year old?”
“When I’m a 4-year old, everything I do is play. Each moment is filled with discovery. And I greet every day with optimism.”
“Hey! That’s how birds live. Maybe you should wear feathers.”
And much success,
