As the Frankenmoon rises on the freakiest Halloween since the Great Blood Moon of 2002, please take a minute out from battening down your hatches to recall the true supernatural survival roots of Halloween and evaluate the survival quotient of your Halloween disguise – before it’s too late.
As many readers know, Halloween marks the end of the happy harvest season of celebration and the start of the long dark teatimes of the soul, which before electricity must have been even longer and darker. With less tea. On Halloween the fabric between the worlds, all worlds, is thin and fragile. You just need a little frankenmoon frankenstorm to blow a frankenhole in that layer and we’re all frankenfurters. Who will pop through the Halloween hole this year? You can never tell until it’s too late.
That’s why this Halloween more than ever, your survival may depend on a superior supernatural survival strategy. And a strategic disguise is the foundation of any good supernatural survival plan. Contrary to popular belief a good disguise is not always the one that gets you the most candy. Girls you know what I’m talking about here. I’m not going to say any more.
Sure candy is important. Candy can play a vital role in your Frankenmoon Halloween survival strategy. Remember the lady who survived for 7 weeks in her car in the woods of Nevada with only snow and candy to eat? But remember, this was not on Halloween, so she didn’t need to disguise herself.
The ancients understood the benefits of a really good disguise. Werewolves dressed up as grandmothers, elves disguised as rocks, babies made to look like cabbages, that kind of thing. All good strategies to outsmart malicious spirits. Nobody likes cabbage, not even a zombie. Unless it’s pickled cabbage, then yeah, sure you might meet a hungry zombie. Otherwise, a giant head of cabbage is an excellent disguise for a baby. Or anyone really who doesn’t want to attract the attention of frisky frankenmoon supernatural tourists.
So why doesn’t anyone disguise themselves as a rock or a cabbage anymore? Where did we go so horribly wrong?
This disguise for example, sent to us by Karlito, who you may also recognize as the 2 millionth survivor. Clearly Karlito is not going to make it through this Frankenmoon Halloween. I am genuinely concerned. A costume like this screams a Survival Quotient or SQ of “supernatural sucker.”
(No offense intended to you Karlito. I know you’re the leader of a big pack but still. Survival is serious business.)
Please survivors, we can do better. Take your survival seriously. If you want to pre-screen your disguise choice, please feel free to send it in like Karlito did and we can all help by rating your SQ and giving tips to help you survive.
Above all keep on keeping on as the Frankenmoon brings a stormy Halloween.
