There is a Time & Place for Everything

Dear Fall Freaks and Northern Nutjobs,

It is the fourth day of September.  I know you are all excited about kicking Summer's bikini clad butt out the door and dragging Fall in by it's auburn hair, but it is not yet time for Pumpkin Spice.

Don't get me wrong. I love Pumpkins.  I love spices.  I love Pumpkin Spice.  I love Fall and the weather changing and the beautiful fall colors and fall smells.

But if I'm still eating watermelon & drinking sweet tea and sweating my ass off in the 90+ degree heat, the last thing I want is to be inundated with is Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING.

So, please.  Can we at least wait until the Autumnal Equinox until we stock the store shelves and plaster the interwebs with everything from Pumpkin & Cream Flavored coffees to Pumpkin Spice hemorrhoidal creams?

  1. It's all about making as much money from us consumers as possible. Rush the seasons. Rush the holidays. Get us to spend, spend, spend.

    P.S. Is that Tampax box for real???

  2. Personally, I'm sick of the whole pumpkin experience. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin casserole, pumpkin , pumpkin, pumpkin. Dammit--it's for PIE!!!!! End of story!

  3. Not a pumpkin fan here. Fortunately I can't grow them very well so I'm off the hook. The worst part is that so many of the pumpkin spice "scents" smell like nothing more than chemicals!

  4. Are you kidding me? Pumpkin Scented Tampons!!!!!

    I hate to add I am going to make a loaf of a monkey type bread that has pumpkin puree in it (I am ducking my head in shame)

  5. Carolyn,

    Oh dear, pumpkin spice tampons!
    I love fresh pumpkin, as for pumpkin can stay on the shelve at the grocery store.
