It’s October!

But you probably knew that.

The worst thing about October is that November comes next. October is pretty; a riot of colors in the trees, the chance to drown in Halloween candy and pumpkin spice everything, the crispness in the air. November is a harsh reminder that the riot of colors we loved in October is really death and decay, Halloween candy and pumpkin spice everything are fattening and filled with chemicals, and the crispness turns too quickly to snow.

I’m a pessimist, I know.
