313. and now, for your viewing pleasure
I’ve never been a big fan of Halloween. It has nothing to do with Christian protests against the holiday. If anything, I think my ambivalence towards Halloween has to do with the fact that I spent YEARS trying to figure out who I was (some of that wrestling documented in this very blog) and so the thought of trying to be someone/something else, even for just a day, had zero appeal for me.
Anyway, I’m reasonably more sure about myself and so I wonder if that’s why I chose to dress up this year.
Some friends of mine got an invitation to a “versus” Halloween party. The idea was to come dressed up in pairs or teams that symbolized some kind of versus theme. Some of the suggestions were: rock vs paper vs scissors or Eagle vs Shark or red vs blue.
My roommate and I came up with Boxers vs Briefs.
On a deeper level, we were actually representing Free Will (boxers) vs Determinism (briefs).
