We get it, Hanx. You win Halloween this year, and maybe Halloween forever. But, is there something more to learn from David S. Pumpkins?
As Sara Benincasa writes in a Medium post about our new favorite hero, “Do we not each walk through life with our own dancing skeletons beside us?” And if you have to have these skeletons with you through your life, isn’t it best that they are dancing? Gotta have fun with this thing we call life. We aren’t getting out of here alive, amirite?
The key to living a life that would make David S. Pumpkins proud is simple: Don’t overthink it.
