People, I have a problem. I am a hoarder.
A few weeks back I started thinking about pumpkins; it’s already well-known that I love Halloween so the fact that I was thinking about pumpkins in August shouldn’t be odd.
After deciding to make pumpkin oatmeal I went to the grocery store and they didn’t have any canned pumpkin. Thinking it was out-of-stock I checked back a few days later and still nothing. This is when I learned it’s a seasonal item and that there was a shortage last year and stores stopped carrying it. Commence pumpkin panic.
All I could think about were the delicious treats I was missing out on. I scoured stores for weeks thinking it had to arrive soon. There are already Christmas decorations in Costco - where is my pumpkin?!
Today I was in Target and there it was in all its orange-velvety goodness. I may have let out a small yelp and started grabbing the cans off the shelf.
But I’m not! I should have bought more!
Tomorrow morning I will finally get my pumpkin oatmeal. Now if only Halloween would come sooner…
