Halloween isn't just for ghouls and goblins.
Or zombies. Ack. I hate zombies.
No, Halloween is also about becoming something you're not. It's about suspending your disbelief for one day and pretending that you could really be a rock and roll star, a movie star, a sports star, a politician (God help you), a superhero, a fairy princess or Piglet even.
Yes, a fairy princess or Piglet even. (Forget it -- no zombies. Really. I'm not going to tell you again.)
Pretend change is easy. Real change for a real live adult? That can be painful, although there is immediate relief in the believing.
And believing in my fairy princess and my Piglet give me immediate relief.
Even if Piglet can't do much yet. And the fairy princess just dances around.
