October 9, 2013
Just as October rolled in,
and the pumpkins showed up,
and the gourds took over the grocery store,
and the leaves started falling,
and candy corn became a midday snack,
California was all “Oh hell no, it’s not fall yet” and decided to be 90 degrees again.
Kind of like this: “Hi, can I get a pumpkin spiced latte please? But hold the pumpkin, hold the spice, add watermelon agua fresca, and you know what, go ahead and take away the latte part too. Extra ice, extra limes.”
It all happened about a week ago, when I was taking an awesome photography class on a street corner in downtown LA (which I mentioned here, Jaymee mentioned here, and Ann-Marie mentioned here!), and I was sitting in direct sunlight, melting into a pool of hair products and lotion. You gotta love that California sunshine though, because pretty soon winter will be here and you know how crazy CA winters can be. I mean, total mayhem in the seasonal department. YA RIGHT, it’s mild and boring, yada yada. Happy October!
