Make the World Friendlier – Dress in Costume

Jester Hat

Like many others, I wore a costume to work on Halloween and I didn’t take it off to walk to my car or during lunch.  While in costume, I noticed that everyone said hi to me, asked me about my costume.

People I had walked by and ignored in the past, asked me about my day.  If I were to suggest one thing to help build community in America, it would be “wearing costumes.”  I think it takes people by surprise and puts you out of your norm.

Even if costumes can’t solve the world’s big problems, at least you won’t have to suffer small talk about the weather anymore.
