Wednesdays: the hump day. If you make it past that, then the rest of the week is a breeze. And let's not forget that it is the day that spell check hates the most. (Honestly, that "d" does not belong there). But this year, it's something more. In this fated year of 2012, the most magical time of the year falls on this most pivotal and underrated day, Wednesday.
(A little known fact about Halloween is that it actually is National Magic Day. It was first created a year after Harry Houdini died.... on Halloween. Coincidence? Or not?)
I've always loved Halloween even though I'm definitely past the point where trick-or-treating is still considered cool. I never really understood that. Halloween is supposed to be a day when you can give yourself the courage to be anyone you've ever wanted to be, without feeling like you're being judged for it. Why would anyone want to give that up to meet other people's standards?
And c'mon people, free candy! What kind of deranged masochist denies themselves that? If the "cool" people don't eat candy, then I want absolutely nothing to do with them. They're obviously mentally unstable!
And finally, to end this post with one of my favorite quotes from the entire book:
"'I've got a joke for you,' Kaidan told him. Jay nodded his head, ready. 'What's the difference between a drummer and a savings bond?'
'I don't know. What?' Jay beamed bright yellow.
'A savings bond eventually matures and makes money.' "
