  1. 10. But really since I’ve spent practially EVERY Sunday since the early 80’s watching football, I think I should get ten points for that question alone, thus giving me a total of 20.


  2. 12. I love fall, but these were boring. Have you ever….had sex in a haunted house? had sex in a pile of leaves? been so turned by foliage that it gave you wood or wet?

  3. 15. I did once have occasion to learn that some universities have a Spring semester and an Autumn Semester, which then set off a little debate in my head (mostly on why “Autumn semester” sounds so peculiar to my ear, when either word individually doesn’t seem odd).

    1. Make that 16. Michelle M’s post reminded me that the house I grew up in had an apple tree in the backyard, and on several occasions I would walk 20 feet to the tree and go apple picking, mostly to make applesauce. Mmmmm, homemade applesauce and vanilla ice cream on an autumn day. Yum.

      Michelle M: eating apples off the ground? Ew!!!! Those were always the wormy ones.

  4. 8. I have picked apples off the ground (we had an apple tree once), I’ve picked a pumpkin out of the supermarket bin and I made myself into a scarecrow for Halloween once, so if these count, then 11.
