It’s official. We the People have lost our collective minds. We have crossed the line. Stepped over the invisible barrier. Gone a bridge too far.
We have pumpkin-spiced everything that should be and a great many things that shouldn’t.
I love fall. I love the cooler temperatures. I love the changing colors of the leaves. I love pumpkin-spice flavor.
But perhaps there should be limits.
A friend of mine recently asked (on Facebook where people answered) for fall recipes that weren’t pumpkin spice. I thought she was over reacting to the season.
No, no, my friend. If anything, she understated the obvious. I just somehow missed the memo.
Until I went to the grocery store last night. And almost passed out from pumpkin-spice variety overload.
What’s next? Pumpkin toothpaste?
I thought I was joking. Buzzfeed thought I was joking (great little blog on things that should never be pumpkin-spiced here).
But Amazon took me seriously.
I need to go lie down for a while.
