“Josh Gad and Halloween Costumes”

November 7th, 2013 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized

On November 6, USA Today published a wonderful article by contributor Josh Gad.   Gad’s article was a commentary on Halloween costumes and the current state of conformity.  Gad did not dress his 2-year old daughter as a princess, a Disney character, or heaven forbid, Miley Cyrus.   He and she went as …. Marty McFly and Doc Brown from Back to the Future!
The pictures are adorable.  However, Gad was stunned when no one recognized them!  Some thought she was Bruce Banner, others said she was a doctor!  He exclaimed, “I wanted to grab the mother by her Prada leg warmers and say:  ‘My daughter is not dressed as your damned pediatrician.  She’s Doc Brown.  The same Doctor Emmett Brown who sent McFly back to 1955 on October 26, 1985!’
Gad continues his commentary by summing up the current state of Halloween and how it relates to society.  “Uniformity has become the cool thing.  We all have the same phones.  We all dress the same way… . “  “I think the path is clear!” In order to reclaim our uniqueness, we must first reclaim Halloween
I loved it!
Conformity always made me angry.  In my opinion, social media represents the ultimate in conformity. People used to say me, “Why aren’t you on Facebook or Twitter?”  I have since conformed because of my business but rarely use is consistently.   I know the reason I do not use it… I prefer to swim away from the crowd and be myself.
People can always write me a letter or better yet, pick up the phone!
