This year Starbucks is launching their pumpkin spice latte in AUGUST.
That’s right, I SAID AUGUST. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is launching August 28 this year.
How is that even a thing? Why is it that we are always in such a hurry to get to fall? Why are people pushing summer away like it’s the red headed stepchild of seasons instead of trying to squeeze every last ounce of joy from it like the QUEEN SEASON DESERVES.
Look, I enjoy a delicious mull spiced pumpkin flavored coffee beverage just as much as the next person, but you know what I like more?
(Side note: Did you know that pumpkin flavored everything isn’t even actually pumpkin? Me either.)
I want to spend these last few days of summer with my kid. (I mean, every single time I go on Facebook someone is popping up that meme that reminds me we only have 18 summers together anyway.)
I want to lounge in the pool and sip fruity drinks while listening to inappropriate rap music. You know what you can’t sip on in the pool? A PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE, that’s what.
So yeah, I want Starbucks to hold off on the fuzzy sweaters and the tall boots for just a little bit longer.
Because I promise you, fall will come and it will be wonderful and glorious and full of gorgeous leaves and deliciously warmed ciders and lattes.
But that ain’t happenin’ in August. Ya feel me?
