Dear reader, if I waited around for stew weather to materialize, I'd never eat stew.
Nor pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
I'd never be able to set the world record for wearing this yellow cardigan six days in a row.
I can't afford to wait for these things. I can't miss out on my favorite season of the year simply because it only exists around here like some über cool boyfriend who is too emotionally distant to show he really cares.
You know? Like, the signs of his affection are so subtle you feel stuck in an airtight chamber wondering if it's normal not to breathe.
Bring on autumn. Bring it on like a sloppy puppy who will pant and lick you, who quivers at your touch and gazes at you every day like it's love at first sight.
Bring it on like that.
Bring on boots, cardigans, aromatic cookies, and hearty bowls of stew.
That's what an imagination is for, darling.
So you can have the best of both worlds...in this world.
