If a stranger offers you candy, you should take it. If taking it makes you fear for your life then you should take two pieces. Then also you should start giving candy out to strangers, or maybe something more wholesome than candy.
(October 24 – November 22)
Hello children of desire! Be sure your passions are breaking upon the opening chances for life. Remember: choose ecstasy if it is new.
