Everyone, except for me.
Sure, the leaves turn pretty colors, Halloween is pretty fucking amazing and you don't have to worry about sweating your ass off during the hottest of summer months.
However when i think of fall, i dwell on the more negative side of this wonderful season.
Living in New England has its perks during the summer, fall and spring months. There is always something to do, with all the beaches, going into the city, theme parks and Oktoberfest-ivities this is one of the greatest places to live.
If only i could live here every other season except for winter.
I know it isn't winter yet, but this just brings me to my list of reasons i don't like fall.
1.No more free tans. I cant go outside in my bikini during 60 degree weather and get a tan. I enjoy getting up early just to plop my butt on the warm sandy beach and take a nap for a few hours. I get to relax and wake up with an amazing shade of brown I didn't have to pay for. No tanning beds and fifty dollar monthly packages. Just me, a case of beer, the view and some tanning oil.
2.No more shorts. I'm picky when it comes to clothing, I could care less whats "trendy" or not, ill wear white after labor or before or....whenever the hell they say you aren't supposed to (if i want).
I put on my body what's comfortable, what i think looks good and one of those clothing items is a nice pair of shorts. I can move without worrying about them ripping off or falling down, I seem to have that problem with jeans. Shorts fit me better plus Ive been told i have nice legs. Guys, i know your going to miss seeing the extra skin on girls while they strut there stuff down the streets on warm summer days as well, you can't deny it. Fall comes along and they cover it all up until next year. Savor the moments. I know you do it, because i do.
3.One step closer to freezing. How ever beautiful the change may be from summer to fall, the dying leaves only mean one thing. Winter. Winter is by far my most hated season, ever. I wouldn't be upset if we got rid of it all together. Fall, spring and summer can stay, but winter has got to get the fuck out. Winter means cold, cold means snow, with snow you get ice. Clumsy me enjoys falling on her ass so hard she cant walk for week on this wonderful slippery substance. Cold means heavy coats and having to get up earlier than usual to warm your car in the morning, cold means its time for my hibernation and fifty pound weight gain. How about we just skip all that and go straight to spring. I want to be able to walk outside barefoot, without a huge heavy bubble coat, gloves and boots that soak up more water than keep out.
I want to be able to smell the warm summer breeze and feel the ocean waves at my feet. I guess i wouldn't hate fall so much if Winter didn't exist. Unfortunately it does, and unless i want to move somewhere tropical, which is a huge possibility, I'll just have to suck it up until spring.
|Well. Happy October!|
At least I can look forward to taking pictures of the leaves, my Halloween party and drawing more pictures like this one!
