Get out your raincoat and start wearing flannel. Rent a cabin on the beach and have one last bonfire. Remember how good Kid A was and listen to it on repeat. Switch from sauvignon blanc to malbec. Purchase firewood and then impatiently stalk the weather report in the hopes the temperature will drop enough to burn it. Buy some real, honest-to-gosh paper books even though you have four unread on your Kindle. Spend way too much time thinking about what to be for Halloween; flip-flop between solo and group costumes. Try to read Gone Girl before seeing the movie, but end up caving and finding the nearest cinema with a liquor license (the movie is just as good as the book, which is rare). Drink hot beverages before bed. Bake too many loaves of pumpkin bread; force yourself to take a couple to the office to share. Promise yourself yet again that you'll have all your holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving, even though you always fail to accomplish this. Get a new haircut, feel like a new human being. Start wearing boots the minute the temperature drops below 70 degrees; try to ignore the sweating this causes throughout the day. Bundle up in a flannel blanket and take a walk in the woods. DVR all your favorite scary movies and watch throughout the month of October. Obsessively purchase anything with pumpkin in it. Knit faster. Bundle up and sit on your back porch to enjoy the full moon. Lose your voice cheering at a soccer match. Snuggle more. Eat apples. Make soup. Call your mother. Let the coziness consume you.
