Pumpkin Etiquette

Human Behavior Tip • 2

If you ever go to a pumpkin patch in the fall and buy a whole bunch of pumpkins,

and put them in the back of your pickup truck,

then have your friend drive around town while you sit in the back.

Don’t throw pumpkins at the windshield of every car that gets within five feet of your truck while shouting,

“You’re too close Jack. O’Lantern. And the penalty is pumpkin!”


“See this pumpkin? Now here comes the pie!”


“Orange looks good on you.”

People don’t like that.

Old bones. Young heart. Focusing on a wide variety of creativity. @markstarlin
