I admire you!
I cannot fathom why, but if you’re being genuine: thank you. I appreciate that very much.

What are you going to be for Halloween?
My childhood love of Halloween has never waned as I’ve grown into adulthood but my desire to dress in costume for the evening certainly has. Still, my girlfriend enjoys dressing up for the festivities each year, and it occurred to me a couple weeks back that with a beard my costume choices are limited. I’ve come up with two fool-proof options that I can alternate between for pretty much the rest of my life: I can be a Viking, or I can be a lumberjack (though it’s not much of a costume - it’s not uncommon for me to wear a flannel with denim and boots in my day-to-day.)
Thanks for the question!
