I was sitting at my desk, when the door opened and Eric said,
“Summer is officially over.”
It was a strange thing to hear, as Eric is not one to speak to seasons often. When I turned to question what he’d said, in his hand I saw a shiny beacon of pumkiny goodness: a Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Swirl Latte with almond milk.
And I know what you’re thinking, and potentially saying out loud angrily to the computer/phone screen: IT’S STILL AUGUST, IT’S CLEARLY STILL SUMMER!
I hear you, I really do. But each dreamy sip takes my straight into my flannels and fleece, and I swear I can hear the crunching of fallen leaves.
Does anyone else smell that cool crisp Autumn air? Or am I simply delusional, breathing in the conditioned air loudly spewing into my office, as it’s done every other day of Summer?
That last sip of pumpkin latte wraps its arms around me, and assures me, I’m not crazy. Even though Eric is outside cleaning the pool and it’s currently 83 degrees and mostly sunny.
Summer, you were good to me, and I to you. But move along, it’s Pumpkin time! Call me basic and unoriginal, call me whatever you will. I’ll be here in my pumpkiny dreamland sipping the sweet spice of my latte.
