No. Don’t get any ideas, please. March is my month and I’m very proud of it. I won’t begin to tell you about all the wonderful people who have been blessed enough to share that month with me, ‘cause if I do, this post will never end.
I’m writing about November because it is another month that I’ve fallen for. I mean head, shoulders, knees and toes for.
So this buddy of mine suddenly asks me one good day what month I’d love to be born in if I wasn’t born in March. I didn’t think so much before I blurted out in pidgin: NOVEMBER! (Oh wait a minute. There’s no pidgin for November, it’s all the same. Oops!)
And recently, when someone else asked me why, I had a few things to say.
I love the people in my life who are born in November. I feel they’re very special. Seriously, I know very lovely people in every other month of the year, but November’s goodies just overwhelm me. When I think November, I think blue ocean water, I think white light, I think the sunflower, I think crisp cookies, I think too-good-to-be-true, I think rice, spice and everything nice! That’s November to me.
First there’s a feeling I get in November that doesn’t come in any other month. Not even march. (that’s just because the feeling in march is too exclusive to be shared, know-warr-am-sayinn!) I’m overly excited about something I can’t place. I feel new. My dear, November is just such a beauty. If she were a girl, I bet y’all men will wanna marry her!
These special November people in my life must be acknowledged in this note. For some reason, I think it’s basically because of them I’ve come to respect the month so much. They have represented it so well, and I implore you folks of the other months to not beef at all. I say it the way I feel it.
Foremost is (drums roll!!!!!!)…My mum: Sweet woman. When I search for words to describe you, I just go mum in astonishment. You are an amazing woman, very rare in this world of ours. I mean that. And I shall dedicate a whole note to tell that story. Soon.
