October, the grandest of all the months of the year, not least because it is my birth month, seems to have been designated 'pumpkin month' resulting in every conceivable food being infused and combined with pumpkin or its flavor, natural and not.
Then there is that bastion of bad coffee, whose beverage offerings can only be compared to Jim Jones' kool-aid. They seem to have a count-down to the day you can obtain their pumpkin flavored potions.
Scroll around the interwebz this month and you will discover that pumpkin and its perceived flavor has been added to anything and everything even remotely edible, drinkable and smellable.
I like pumpkins. Cunningly carved or prettily painted. They are cute. They are festive. They are fun. But aside from pie - Stop the pumpkin madness.
