Did you know that the Eat Local Challenge is in October again this year? How did I not get that memo? I thought I had conveniently missed it.
As you know, October is my very favorite month for the Eat Local Challenge because it coincides with the winter squash-a-thon that marks the end of the summer and the beginning of our return to the frozen tundra. Husband and I had to discuss whether or not we would be participating this year:
Him: What do you think?
Me: I don’t know, what’s the quota for crying in any given year?
Him: Maybe we could do it for a week.
Me: It would have to be one of the non-squash beginning weeks. Which, according to my calendar, start way too soon.
Him: Or we could just do an Eat Local side dish.
Me: A side dish?
Me: Pfffft. That’s not even a challenge. I could do that with two hands tied behind my…(yawning). Is it bedtime, yet?
Him: It’s quarter of 6.
Me: Goddamn the hands of time.
I was happy that Husband was so gung-ho about it. Still, in the interest of not stressing the shit out of myself during what’s supposed to be my recovery period, we’re going to pass this year. If you’re really depressed about it, you can re-read the posts pertaining to our moderately successful Eat Local Challenge of September 2007 and the train wreck that was the ELC of October 2008. But I don’t think you’re depressed about it at all.
Anyway, I’m sure I’ll do a
few Eat Local posts next month just for fun. Who knows?
Maybe even an Eat Local side dish!
