Halloween | Our Favorite Time of Year
This week’s blog comes from our lovely barista and stockroom wonderkid, Julia. She enjoys such things as softball, softball, things that are similar to softball, and softball.
For this week’s blog, Julia is trying something a little bit different: she’s giving you guys homework. (Everyone loves homework, right?!)
If you’ve come into Diesel in the past day or two, you probably couldn’t help but notice the spooky paper cut-outs, plastic pumpkins, and twinkly orange string lights. Before you go and call the Somerville Health Department about the decaying corpses and excessive spider webs strewn about the store, let us explain: DIESEL LOVES HALLOWEEN.
Halloween is a big damn deal! Even if your costumes are kinda “eh” every year (like mine), it can still be wicked (GET IT?) fun!
And since Halloween is a big damn deal, we like to dress up during our shifts. In the past we’ve done Smurfs, Wild West, Freak Show/Circus, 70s Lifeguards (or something like that), Monsters, Zombies, and many others…
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! The suggestion box/e-mail chain is OPEN! For the first time ever, we are asking for our beloved customers’ help in determining our staff costume this year. Who (or what) would you like to see behind the counter on October 31st? Ever had a latte prepared by Honey Boo Boo? No? Neither have we. Let’s keep it that way. Help us out with some ideas!
Final decision will be made the week before the 31st, so we have plenty of time for Goodwill rummaging!
Things to keep in mind: we will be working in these outfits so nothing on the hands or wrists, no dangley bits, must be close-toed shoes, etc, etc.
PLEASE PARTICIPATE SO WE DON’T END UP DRESSING LIKE DUCK DYNASTY! PLZ!!!
