If there’s one thing that I love that I can’t eat, it would be trees.
They’re tall and majestic. They’re fun to climb. They give shade on hot summer days.
Recently I was driving along with my non-imaginary friend and I noticed that in a gust of wind, leaves fell from a maple on the side of the road and fell on the pavement and on our car where they promptly flew off.
I realized that this could only mean one thing. Fall is finally here.
Already I can feel myself raking up the leaves in the yard, see myself cosplaying one of my favorite characters for Halloween, smelling freshly baked apple pie coming from the kitchen, tasting the pumpkin spice lattes (Yes. Starbucks is for teenage boys too), and hearing the sounds of the leaves crunching under my feet as I go on long walks.
Here’s to pumpkin picking, hay rides, fair rides, fair food, coffee, trick or treating, orange and yellow leaves, and jumping in leaf piles.
Here’s also to trees.
Without them, it wouldn’t really be fall.
Have a wonderful day! I’m off to go enjoy this wonderful weather.
