Some Pre-Halloween Parade Thoughts
As for me, Halloween will certainly present some incredible challenges, especially with Washington Square Park still in the throes of a massive renovation. What becomes of the Children's Halloween Parade, led as always by the oddly-dressed menagerie of the NYU Bagpipe Band? They're bound to need to find a way to deal with that, by Merlin's beard! And what's worse is, I have to find a way to keep me Wizardly threads in full splendor throughout the day. That, plus I need to deal with me e-mails as best I can ... without any silly people wondering why I'm wearing my robes!
As ever, my seven Wizardly bosses, the Grand High Istari, warned me how dangerous this dum-dum would be from the moment I took the oath to uphold the principles inherent in the responsibilities that go with being Dragonmaster. How I managed to get dropped off in this dump known as New York City is beyond me; but, given that I long ago promised my fellow New Yorkers that I would remain in their face for the forseeable future, oh, 'tis a harsh existence, but I manage to put up with it.
So, what all this means is that I'm gonna have to make some major decisions and split-second choices which, as always, will find new and incredible ways to piss me off. What, then, do I do about it all? Well, Master Blackwolf, methinks you'll have to make like Indiana Jones and start making things up as ye go along; for, as we all know --- and I wish Don La Fontaine were still around to narrate the damn trailer for my movie --- if you think it's hard out here for a pimp, try being a Wizard! (Heh-heh!)
