Happy obligatory holiday themed post Halloween!
My favorite thing about Halloween is visiting pumpkin patches, shoving all pumpkin flavored treats into my mouth, and see tiny humans dressed up being all cute and asking for candy.
I am not so much into the dressing up myself. I am not creative enough; which means I am lazy. But pumpkin patches, I do those. And I do them well.
Unfortunately, I do not carve well. I can do the traditional jack-o-lantern face as well as the next person, but this year we painted our pumpkins instead. Read again: lazy. But then I scooped out all the pumpkin seeds and made a yummy snack, and felt that I had served Halloween well.
Next year though, pumpkins better watch out. I am going to carve the shit out of you! Which is my thought after each Halloween and then I shamefully fail.
This pumpkin would have cost us $30. After we left the pumpkin patch, we went to Ralph’s and bought a bigger one for $5. Cheap or smart. You decide. Maybe a little of both?
Unfortunately, the pumpkin patch we chose to go to seemed geared towards children only. I thought at least there would be some pumpkin treats or a haunted house. I would have even accepted a few games.
I suppose I am at that in between age, where, especially during holidays, some activities may be a bit awkward for adults without children. I’m not going to lie and say that waiting in lie to take a picture in the teepee with the other two year olds was a little less than uncomfortable. I pretended to be looking at something nearby until it was my turn. I’m pretty sure I cut a little kid off.
Honestly, Halloween just means that we are that much closer to Christmas. Tomorrow, November 1st, the first radio station in Sacramento switches over to 24 hour Christmas music. You bet your ass that is all I am listening to until December 26th.
Oh, hi Ugly Mug!
