The sun rose from behind the downtown skyline, the streets were bustling with people just arriving to celebrate the deviant within us all by dressing up like the zombified remains of the undead and partying like crazy.

In what I can only imagine was preperation for the rush of humans about to enter the downtown corridor, these two young gentleman were listening intently to a slightly older young man who was schooling them in the art of panhandling.

“If you ask for 25 cents then you’ll get 25 cents. Do you really only want a quarter? Ask for $5 dollars, ask for what you actually want.”

The boys nodded appreciatively and with that the older young man said:

“Alright then, show me what you got.”

and the boys played their guitar and sang their tune and the older young man went on looking unimpressed.
