I am sitting here in flannel pajama pants and a long-sleeved thermal shirt while I bake a loaf of bread. BECAUSE IT’S THE GREATEST SEASON OF ALL. It was 92 degrees today, but who’s counting. Call me a basic bitch or whatever you want, but I stand proudly by my love of All Things Pumpkin and the crackle of fires and really any reason to be in a kitchen making things and putting those things in jars or my mouf, whatever happens first.
Fall, motherfuckers. There’s no other season. It could be Permanent Fall and I would never be happier. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Fall. Starbucks has made a fortune off of Fall. They really don’t even need to exist in any other season. I can make my own damn coffee, but what I cannot make is a nonfat pumpkin spice latte. I’m sure I could, but it wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t have to stand in a line full of chicks in boots and coats asking for half a Splenda in their shit.
So there’s not much to this, I just wanted to share with you all my love of now, and the month to come. Because hey, it’s Texas, and that’s all the Fall you get. Then it turns into a weird and dreary wasteland full of filthy cars and sad, dry tree limbs. But hey! OCTOBER!!! Here we are!! Gotta go drink my tea with some milk and spices in it while I listen to Frank Sinatra and make a hat out of leaves.
GO FOR A WALK! BUY SOME FLANNEL!! EAT PIE ALL DAY!!
