It's October again and we all know what that means. The pumpkin-spice spigot opens up and the treats and the references will come blasting at us from everywhere.
Just like that time Matt LaFramboise opened the fire hydrant with his dad's big wrench or whatever and you were standing directly in front of it and the great force of water just knocked you back down onto the street and you were stunned and hurt and everyone was laughing but you couldn't have anyone see you cry so you ran home and went in the basement and boy oh boy did the tears fall.
Then your mom calls down and asks, "Is everything OK down there?"
And you just say, "I am FINE, MOTHER! Leave me alone with my stuffed animals."
Well, I could have used a funny comic or three to cheer me up back then, so what do you say we just throw chum in the ocean and round up some of last year's most-celebrated Pumpkin Spice jokes?
Because if I can cheer up even just two kids who are having a bad day, it will all be worth it.
