I began this month by rising out of bed way too early. I was having a dream that I had trapped a rat in the garage. But it was not my current garage, it was the garage in the house that I grew up in. I didn’t feel like dealing with it, so I woke up. But, I woke up to NOVEMBER!
I kinda crapped out on October. I even bought all these Halloween Mt. Dew aluminum bottles and never wrote about them. Too late though, It’s NOVEMBER! November the 1st. All Saints Day. The day the Irish call the first day of winter.
Of course the big day isn’t until the end of the month. I was at my families house last weekend. My aunt was discussing the Thanksgiving holiday, which is always held at her house. I blurted out, “I’LL MAKE THE PIES!!!” See, because every year I want the pies and I get stuck with the dinner rolls. Until last year. I got the pies and my mom ruined it by heading to the bakery and BUYING Thanksgiving pies. Shame on her.
Oh, and it’s Movember. I will perfect my ‘stache.
Finally it’s National write a Novel month or for those as myself who fail at that each year, we just write a blog.
So, get into your local Target and stock up on your plastic tombstones and dancing skeletons for next year. They will be replaced with nativity scenes and Santas before the end of the week.
