October is a looong month.
Yes, I love fall -- I love the leaves turning, things getting chilly and cooking comfort food.
The end of the month is Halloween -- which is fun -- and this will be our first Halloween with Spock (all black, arches like a perfect Halloween cat!!).
But -- for goodness sakes, why do we need an entire Breast Cancer Awareness Month -- and, if we really need it, why can't it be February?
I'm aware of breast cancer -- really, who isn't? If they made a South Park episode about it - we know about it. I'm just tired of companies selling things by promising a "portion"of the proceeds to breast cancer groups. I have to wonder how big a "portion" is...
So -- go ahead and wear the pink ribbon. Buy pink stuff etc -- and, don't get me wrong -- the breast cancer sorority really appreciates the effort and the strong breast cancer political advocacy -- just don't be surprised when my fake boob doesn't have a pink ribbon pinned to it because I'm freaking aware of breast cancer.
