With the fall season comes the arrival of pumpkins, gargantuan orange vegetables that, according to the books, TV and movies, are used to decorate houses on Halloween. This holiday of ghouls, spooks, costumes and candy is something I grew up with (being brought up in a former American colony, which pretty much enjoys the same commercial holiday calendar as the US – except for Thanksgiving. Or do Filipinos also celebrate Thanksgiving nowadays?), but the famous vegetable closely linked to the holiday is something I have never had the privilege to experience up close and personal.
Hence, seeing that the supermarkets, ready to service all American holiday decoration needs, are now filled with mountains of pumpkins of all sizes, which The Husband and I, who are very much alien and very much excited to see this particular fall fiend, unceremoniously decide to have a little fun with it.
The Husband asked me to take pictures of him tossing the heaving pumpkin into the air…
Weeee! The little joys trips to the supermarkets bring! Don’t you have those crazy supermarket moments too?
Unfortunately, we didn’t bring home a pumpkin to decorate. Besides, Halloween is too far away. We brought home some birthday ice cream instead, because today is my 1st First World birthday! Whooopsidoo!
A very happy birthday to me!
Delirious over delicious,
