Some Halloween Love For People Without Costumes


Dear Secret Diary.  Today was Halloween, and I know folks enjoy being complimented on their costumes.  But this doesn’t mean that those not wearing costumes can’t also feel some love.

Tonight, I ran into an accomplished businessman, with whom I am somewhat acquainted, dressed in his everyday business suit.  I looked at him and said, “Joe, I see you’re dressed up for Halloween as a successful businessman!”*  I was pleased that my comment brought a smile to his face.
