Poor November; you didn’t ask for this

Oh, dear eleventh month.

You woke up Saturday morning for the first time in a year to a glorious fall day.

You got to sleep an extra hour on your first night, leaving you well-rested for the twenty-nine days to come.

And then today. You were given a curse based only on a part of your name, and try as you might, you will never get away from it.

And all in the name of catchy-sounding names.

No-shave November. No-spend November. No-eat November.

The shame of it all.

Perhaps in preparation for their new year’s resolutions, Americans are already beginning to cut back. Just in time for December, in which any progress made during No-_________ November is completely eradicated.

Which makes those new year’s resolutions even more important, I guess.

And now, just because of your name, you have to be associated with people giving up the things that bring them joy: money, food and facial hair.

What is the world coming to?
