So for some crazy Global-Warming-Is-Going-To-Kill-Us-All reason, it was 70 degrees here in NYC on Halloween.
It is normally FREEZING cold, and because of that, I have never wanted to walk in the parade.
But this year I did!
So, When I got home from an audition I had, I asked Laura if she wanted to just throw together a costume and GO FOR IT! She Said Yes!
We looked around the apartment for what we could wear as costumes, and found a few things. Eventually, we came up with Jayne Cobb and River Tam from FIREFLY.
Not many people knew who we were, but those who did RAN UP to us and sang songs, fist-bumped, and quoted lines from the show. It was super fun to walk in the parade:
What was really wild is that there were so many people lined up to watch the parade, 8 and 10 people deep, huddled closely, hoping to get little glimpses of the creative people go by.
It was FAR more fun, exciting, and entertaining to walk because we could see everything, AND be a part of it.
That's the Life lesson there- BEING A PART OF IT IS BETTER THAN BEING A SPECTATOR.
