Where is Fall? by Harlie Williams
What's up with the weather? I live in East Texas so I'm used to not feeling the Autumn Chill until maybe, the end of the month. But when it's 83 degrees on November 6th, it is just stupid.
High School football season is almost over except for the playoffs. Homecoming dances have come and gone and we are finally over our sugar coma from Halloween. Thanksgiving is in a couple of weeks and we are already dealing with all the commercials/music/movies about Christmas. Which to me is just too much.
I realize that I'm not like the others. I don't countdown to the Hallmark Channels annual Christmas movies. In fact, I don't watch the channel. I guess that makes me a non-romantic but I digress. My point is I want FALL. I want to wear a jacket, heck even a sweater. I'm tired of shorts and flip-flops. My air conditioner is still running. I still have tan lines. Not to mention that my allergies are beyond anything that I've experienced in a long time.
See the list above? That's what I want. I don't want the hot anymore. Most people would tell me to move but I like Texas. And Fall is my favorite season. I still haven't had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. I refuse until it gets cooler.
But this did happen on the 1st of November:
Yep, Astros fan here. My husband cried tears of joy and danced a jig in the street. But now...I want football and hockey season weather. I can't wear my hockey jersey with shorts. It's just wrong.
Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving!
