Cuffing Season

Cuffing Season: During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be “Cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.

Boots, scarves, & north face jackets. College football & tail gating. Popcorn crunching under our feet. Hot dogs and cocoa. Fire pits and acoustic singing and strummed guitars. This is what I want my fall to consist of. But with whom?

Will many days fade into nights of cold wine and warm books? Of me snuggled in homemade quilts and thick socks with my 2 year old tucked away under my arm humming a precious little rhythmic snore? The corn fields dry and fruitless, the tractor pulling me along. Bright, plump pumpkins, and crisp peach cobbler. I’ve stocked up on recipes. But for whom?

I heard it’s cuffing season soon. September 1st they say, it goes into full effect. I wonder what will make of me,  a vulnerable lover such as I. Will I be arm and arm drinking mugs of beer and eating warm, old fashioned cinnamon sugared donuts at the GermanTown Octoberfest? or will I be at home watching Hocus Pocus on the disney channel with my brother, eating Red Delicious apples dipped in caramel sauce?

August rush, September ends, October sky, & November blues.
