Have you ever regretted answering the front door dressed like a beggar
Sometimes I like to see what the mood is in my world - like a barometer - and I dress beggar-ish and spend some time downtown just to see how people react to me.
I never ever ask for money or anything at all, and except for asking the time of day, never say anything at all. I just sit and mind my own universe with varying expressions on my face - some expressing joy, some expressing sadness - and see what comes of it.
Sometimes it's with compassion. That's when I know my corner of the universe is working properly.
Sometimes it's with rage and disrespect. Then I know something is quite wrong.
Try it sometime! :)
I didn't really care about embarrassment--I was too sick. But I think I taught the <proselytizers>
a thing or two about trying to make me religeous. They haven't been around since.

In my opinion: you really shouldn't care what you're dressed like if you answer the door, or even in general. If someone's willing to negatively judge you based on appearence alone (I mean, if you're not dressed outrageously bad or strangely) then why would you want associate yourself with them anyways? Those I've met that do judge quite majorly on appearance, are often egocentric, insecure, and shallow.
Snowman, that's an interesting thing to do, and I'm interested in hearing of the reactions people have had towards you.
So far any negativity has been with the mouth and the eyes.
Positivity has been intermittent but most graceful, gentle and kind when it does come. There are still people out there with a heart. :) :) :)
But only time will tell. After all, people are putting themselves under more and more pressure and stress these days.
Most frightening are the occasional and few reports of homeless people on the streets of Toronto being set on fire as they sleep, by what you could only call irrational and cruel thugs who then run away. There have been only a couple of instances of this, but a couple is still too many.....
doesn't anyone have a conscience anymore? :(
