BOO! and BOO! and BOO!
You might think these pumpkins are men but they aren’t! They are lady pumpkins who have pulled their hair back.
And guess what? Each one is in the middle of the Roller Coaster Ride! You didn’t think pumpkins went through menopause? Just ask these women:
Hi I’m Paulette, the pumpkin on the left. I am in a BAD mood even though it’s Halloween. GRRRR. Yesterday, everything had a happy orange glow but not today! Read my pumpkin lips, honey: GET OUT OF MY FACE! You go have yourself a Happy Halloween, but leave me alone.
Hi I’m Polly, the pumpkin in the middle. Life is good! Nothing can get me down. I just want to grin, grin, grin. Happy Halloween everyone! I wish I could pop out of the screen and hug you all! Since I can’t, I’m sending you a thousand Halloween winks!
Hi I’m Penelope, the pumpkin on the right. I don’t know if I’m in a good mood or a bad one. I was in a bad mood a minute ago, but now I’m in a great mood. Whoopee! Oh wait, now I’m in a bad mood. I could throw candy corn at the world! Oh hold on, now I’m as happy as a witch sailing on a broomstick through the Halloween Sky. Oh wait, did someone say witch? Now I’m feeling itchy and witchy and bitchy. Drats.
See! I told you! Pumpkins go through menopause too!
The next time menopause makes you up, or down, or up and down, remember our Pumpkin Sisters! We are not alone!
Photo: These lovely pumpkins were carved especially for the North Carolina State Fair. When I met them, they told me they would be pleased to be featured on Friend for the Ride. They are spreading the word about my new menopause blog to the rest of the Female Pumpkin World. Welcome, new Pumpkin Readers!
