boo! -- 4/5

Fire. Pumpkin fire. Pumpkin spice? I hear people like that.

I can trace my fascination with pumpkins to an almost specific time, about this time of year, nearly 21 years ago.

My pre-K teacher had made pumpkin pie. She brought it to school, uncovered it, and showed us. I remember having this fascination mixed with intense dread at the site of that pie. I got myself so worked up over it that I actually threw-up.

And that is a true story.
