Enough Pumpkin Spice
It’s Fall, and with Fall you get pumpkin spiced coffee and beer. Mostly delicious and sometimes awful. But over the past few years it’s been getting a bit ridiculous.
Pumpkin pie was my favorite Thanksgiving dish when I was younger. I loved it more than the turkey and gravy. Now, however, by the time Thanksgiving hits, I want NOTHING to do with pumpkin pie. Even if I don’t try anything for the entire Fall season, the amount I have to hear about pumpkins and see pictures of it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter is overwhelmingly annoying. I’m not even innocent of it. I drank Griffin Paw Screaming Pumpkin Ale last night.
My embarrassing example of irony is warranted. Beer is fine. These other examples are plain ridiculous.
If you’re not rolling your eyes out of your head at this point than we should probably remain strangers. Next year, I’ll have to eat pumpkin turkey because why not? We’re past the point of making any sense.
