It is now October; yes it’s the tenth month of the year. Where has this year gone? Anyways it’s spooky season now and you know what people do during the spooky season: they carve pumpkins. Now don’t get me wrong: I love carving pumpkins and I’m pretty good at it; I just hate the gutting of pumpkins.

Pumpkin-gutting is one of my least favorite things to do…ever. It’s just gross. Sticking your hand in the orange pumpkin guts and seeds. I just can’t do it. It’s the weirdest feeling ever. The texture is very slimy, mushy and not fun. I’m cringing just thinking about it. Also, it takes for EVER! Depending on how clean you want it on the inside. Mine were never ideal because I didn’t want to do it.

In conclusion, the gutting of pumpkins is extremely terrible. If you make me do this, I will die! So that’s why my mother’s doing it for me this year and for years to come.
