We Need to Pump the Brakes on Pumpkin Spice
We're coming up on the last week of August which means Pumpkin Spice everything will be released next week. This news has most people like...
It's not even September though, and it's already "pumpkin latte" this, "pumpkin spice" that.. I'm not sure I'm ready for it. To make it even worse, Dunkin already has its fall menu available for purchase. The "pumpkin everything" flavors hit the menu yesterday.
Now, I love pumpkin spice just as much as every other basic on this planet, but it's just not time yet. I'm not over my citrus-flavored everything, wanting burgers and dogs on the grill, and White Claws on White Claws cravings yet. It's not even officially fall until September 22nd!
I know, I know.... you think I'm a party pooper.
Hear me out.. Can't I have my summertime just a little bit longer? Here's my issue: once pumpkin spice is released, we switch from the tailgate to the apple orchards. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE fall. However, fall doesn't start for me til the last weekend in September. Maybe even the first week of October. I like to hold onto summer as long as possible because it feels like one minute your floating on your unicorn inner tube in Grandmom's pool and the next you're planning the Thanksgiving and Christmas menus for the family parties.
It all goes by so fast! So please, just give me the next 3 weeks before filling my headspace and newsfeed with jack'o'lanterns, cinnamon apple, and for the love of God, pumpkin spiced lattes.
