So…it’s fine to spend some time in your yard trying to take a Halloween vibe photo of some little leaf buddies. That’s totally cool.⠀
And it’s lovely to meet folks from the neighborhood. Totally great to get to know everyone.⠀
But it’s a Tiny Bit Awkward to meet folks from the neighborhood while you’re standing in the yard taking photos of tiny wooden dolls, dressed in lovely knit capes, posed around a bubbling cauldron. ⠀
The temptation is to explain.⠀That will make you sound mad. ⠀Much better to just maintain cheerful eye contact and make polite chit chat wile totally totally totally ignoring the bubbly mess between you.
