Dear Pumpkin Spice… I’m Just Not That Into You

Who wouldn't want their vag to smell like pumpkin spice?! Okay, so this isn't real but who knows, it might be a reality soon enough.

Who wouldn’t want their vag to smell like pumpkin spice?! Okay, so this isn’t real but who knows, it might be a reality soon enough.

It’s that time of year where people go apeshit crazy over everything pumpkin spice. Even my husband gets a little giddy when he has his first pumpkin spice latte of the season.

On Pinterest, there’s all kinds of pumpkin spice everything. I go to Target and have seen pumpkin spice Oreo cookies.

There’s pumpkin spice bread, beer, vodka, yogurt, candy, coffee, candles, muffins, lip balm, and on and on.

Pumpkin spice is everywhere!!!

I have a confession. I fucking hate anything to do with pumpkin and really get the gags when it comes to pumpkin spice. I just don’t get the craze.

I must be missing the pumpkin spice gene. I don’t find the taste appealing at all.

Even as a kid, my family would be like happy, little kids because mmmm, pumpkin pie. And I would always be thinking ewww… cold, slimy pumpkin pie. Then, I would douse my piece in whip cream to try and cover the flavor.

The closest I will come to having anything to do with pumpkin is when my husband roasts the seeds.

I’ve noticed this season especially, the pumpkin spice craze started much earlier and I can only imagine just how crazy companies are going to get next year.

Pumpkin spice scented tissues? Pumpkin spice body wash? Pumpkin spice flavored condoms?

Oooh, could you imagine the millions we could make off that stuff?

In the meantime, my family will be doing what we’ve done for the past few years for Thanksgiving. The husband and the hummingbird will go crazy over the pumpkin pie that’s made and I get chocolate cream pie all to myself (okay, I share, a little). And I get to be the proud new owner of about 5 extra pounds on my ass.

Since it’s Thanksgiving next week, what are you thankful for? I don’t mean the typical things… but something that you accomplished. Something you’re proud of doing.

Like kicking an asshole friend out of your life, quitting a job you couldn’t stand, speaking up for yourself, surviving a shopping trip with your kids without any meltdowns, etc.

For me, it was finally realizing I need to stop taking shit from a family member because I was so fed up with the drama. It was hard, it sucks, it hurts, but a weight has been lifted.

Oh yeah, and also that my in-laws aren’t visiting us for Thanksgiving after all. Damn, that’s such a shame.

*I’m going to be done with my medical program at the end of December so posts on my blog up until then might not be as often as I’d like since I’m still slammed with studying. I’m currently having a love affair with Instagram so you can find me on there.

    I’m with you…I loathe pumpkin spice.

    I’m thankful that I’m 9 days away from completely NaBloPoMo for the second time.

    I hate pumpkin spice too!! Love pumpkin though…

    I’m currently thankful that I quit a job making okay money that completely compromised my morals and forced me to lie to clients constantly, and got a new job. Lots less money, but I LOVE working there. 🙂

    I had the guts to say no when a manager asked me to “temporarily but indefinitely” work at a new site 30 miles farther from my home than my current job is. I got over the fear that saying no would make me look like I wasn’t a team player, or that I would be letting my manager down. Instead I stood up for myself and my family.
