Forest Filled with Leaves
______Now that it's autumn, I'm ready for all sorts of saucy new happenings. I'm ready for cape-like sweaters, snazzy tights, and combo-breaker layering combinations. I'm ready for copious amounts of tea, those horrid frozen fingers I get from frosty bike rides, and snuggly burrito blankets. Autumn has always been my favorite season, maybe because of the beauty of decaying leaves or the banishment of humidity and welcoming of crisp, fresh air.
______Nextly--you guys are always so nice to ask about me (especially considering how awful I've been at commenting on blogs... I'm observing and reading and soon getting to it, I promise!)! I went to my doctor's appointment last weekend and the lady told me that it was basically-probably-mostly from stress. She has put me on probiotics to get good bacteria inside my gut, and has me on a pretty bland diet where I avoid raw nuts, dairy products, and many fruits. So basically, I'm dining caveman style on chicken, sprouted grains, and vegetables for a while. I have been feeling a bit better, so let's hope the situation improves! Intenstinal power!
______Oh. And I never gave out Halloween candy as a snazzy, fishnet-wearing 80-year old or Sailor Moon. As many of you saw on the funky Facebooks, I opted for French Renaissance artist Simon Vouet, but just ended up resembling a caricature of a sketchy French man. And thus, I was indeed "Sketchy French Man." Hon, hon, hon.
______One kid shouted that I had a good beard as I left, a little girl in a princess costume stared at me as she slowly hobbled away (probably in fear), and I even had a short conversation with one kid:
______"What are you supposed to be?"
______"A man, I think."
______"Oh. You are a very pretty man."
______You know what? Kids are all right.
