Falling Normal

It's just about that time of year again!!!!!!!!!!!
I Go Out Of My Way To Step On Leaves That Look Particularly Crunchy.

Stepping on crunchy leaves, I can't help but think about the immense/massive amount of fun I have. I thought to myself, I’m REALLY having too much fun… I then slow, to really get the full effect of a good crunch, rolling my foot over a pile, feeling them disintegrate under the influence of my foot, actually feeling the sound resonate in my leg… Is this something I should be worried about, could I have or develop a superiority complex, knowing that I can affect this something in such a way; could this lead to physiological or psychiatric problems?

I think we should psychoanalyze those that DON'T like stepping on crunchy leaves.

It's so sad when a leaf looks crunchy, and you get all excited.
Then you step on it..and it's not crunchy at all.

It's like a tiny part of you dies.

However this season hasn't produced the opportunity yet.

I'm watching, I'm waiting, I'm hopeful.

I love crunchy leaves!!! Somehow this reminds me of you throwing out your icecream cone out my car window and it still being there for a couple of days... I don't know why maybe because it was in the fall... ha!

Love it! When I take the girls on walks, i PURPOSLY divert the stroller to crunch through all the leaves....make life much sweeter for them!

I can't agree more!!! I love the sound of leaves crunching. There is nothing better than being able to wear a sweater, reading a good book in front of the fireplace, or being able to see your breath in the morning!!!
P.S. I started my own blog, what am I thinking?

I'll throw my hat into the crunchy leave ring. At work there's an area where all the leaves pile up & I love to just jump feet first into it (not thinking of the fact that there could be something icky hiding in the leaves until later) to hear and feel the crunchiness! Happy to hear I'm not alone!

I too love crunchy leaves! I will go out of my way to step on them also. I think there's a facebook group that I'm in that has that exact name. I hope that you don't step on too many false crunch leaves. No one should have that much of them die.
