I planned to grow pumpkins this year. But like a lot of things, it just didn't happen. Hell, I planned to grow a kid and that didn't happen. So I gave up the idea of pumpkins along with the idea of most anything else that required care to grow. In fact, I only got a few peas, tomatoes and peppers out of my garden because I just didn't feel that growing spirit in me.
So we'll go to the pumpkin patch and I'll smile and take pictures. I guess that's not so bad when you consider the long list of disappointments this year.
And aren't I a freakin' ball of sunshine? Geez...I don't even want to listen to myself.
I just want to buy a pumpkin without feeling sad.
It's only a pumpkin...not a metaphor for my life...really.
