"I noticed that wandering around amid the costumed actors were patrons dressed in garb as well. Paying customers who felt they somehow needed to be a part of the show, who didn't quite realize that they are just the audience. One man, draped in burlap monk robes, had shaved the crown of his head. I followed him from the pirate knives shop to the funnel cake stand, wondering the whole time, what must his co-workers think? Larry from accounting dresses up in ridiculous clothes, shaves part of his head and goes to the same play every weekend where he pretends to be part of the cast and wastes his money on overpriced, totally useless trinkets."
