For the last decade or so, there is one fool-proof way to determine the exact moment summer is over and we’ve successfully moved into fall. No, it’s not checking the calendar, and it’s not announced on the weather channel. No, it’s not the dropping temperatures either…
Even if you live in one of those places where it is still hot and humid, you too will know exactly the moment fall arrives. It’s that moment you enter a shopping mall (or any place that has anything for sale) and see rows and displays of EVERYTHING PUMPKIN SPICE!
Remember Bubba from the classic ‘Forest Gump’ movie? He was probably the most enthusiastic shrimp connoisseur there ever was… America loves everything pumpkin-spiced for a short few weeks of fall with the same passion Bubba loved shrimp!
