First of all, I just unwittingly walked all over the island with a semi-large toothpaste stain on my shirt this morning. And this was, on my honor, after congratulating myself for finding and removing a small, unidentifiable stain on the shirt when I first put it on. This doesnâ€™t really relate to anything at all, but I share this with you merely because I always feel comforted by the faux pas of others, knowing at least some of my blunders are universal. So consider this paying it forward.
Less universal was my decision to bring a pumpkin with me to the beach. I daresay I may have been the only person on this beach (or any beach, for that matter) accompanied by a member of the Cucurbitacae family. Ah, well. If I have to turn heads at the beach, at least itâ€™s in keeping with the holiday.
Â Happy Halloween, yâ€™all.
