And make sure you carry a book!
Because hope is a knife that can cut through the foundations of the world.

Of course, I always carry a book when I run around the neighborhood yelling. :)

Makes sense. Protection. I use War and Peace myself in such situations. ;)

And then! You can use it as your new avatar!

You might consider framing it for proof to friends and family that you indeed are October's MOTM. Don't worry! It won't be embarrassing at all! In fact, it's something you should feel proud of - dressing like an owl with a book in hand yelling down the street Yup, not embarrassing at all! ;)

You could always hand out books instead of candy...

I don't see how anything could go wrong :lol:
