Power Month

I have a friend Michael and he just loves May. It turns from April 30th to May 1st and he's all smiles. I loathe all those Spring/Summer months, they trudge on forever but he's thrilled. It's because May is his power month, nothing bad happens to him at all that month. That's how October is for me. I mean, I wouldn't want to push it, but I think if I somehow fell off a building, events would unfold and I'd be okay. I realize that sounds slightly psychotic but seriously, in October I could fly. I feel better, the stars align, just goodness and light all around. My husband, thinks it's because it's so close to Halloween. This was us in the car:
"I feel like I'm forgetting something," I said, sitting there, wondering what it could be.
"Hat?" He offered brightly. "Broomstick?"
Yeah. He's a frickin' riot.
So obviously he thinks it's my power month because his wife is a witch and not the cool Wiccan kind but replace the "w" with a "b" kind. Whatever. The point is, I love October and now, 4 days into the bleh of November, I already miss it. Of course November has Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, but still, I miss the month where I just know in the depths of my soul that every little thing will be all right. Who else has got a power month?


  1. Hmm. I don't think I have one! :(

  2. God! I'm so with you, I miss October like a tooth-ache already. Four days into November and I want my October back!

  3. I don't know that I have a power month, but I will say that, so far, November has sucked major monkey a**. LOL abt your husband. Its always a good sign if you can still do the dry humor joking thing after being married a while.

  4. Chris, you have one. We just have to figure it out.

  5. Frost Queen, I need an October redo. November always blows.

    And avatarminx, November is just wretched until Thanksgiving. But I guess you're right, 16 years of living with me, I guess I should be lucky the man hasn't killed me yet. :)

  6. LOL @ Your hubby, Mines like it too, though he has a favourite saying " A Witch, A Bitch, oh that's right it's Super Mega Bitch Witch" I always reply with "and DON'T you forget it mister!"

    I live in Australia so July is my Power month, I LOVE the cold, even though Oct 30th is my birthday it's getting a bit warm here, and the last few days have been in the 30's oh that's nearly 100°F for you guys.

    though I do LOVE Halloween even those most Aussie don't celebrate it, well I gotta love it, it's the day after my b'day! lol

  7. I think everyone has a power month, you just gotta sit and think on it a little.

    And Tessypoo, so with you on the cold thing. I would rather be cold than hot any day of the week. It's why all my characters live in Chicago and Nevada and take trips to places like Mongolia. I love layers and men in sweaters.

  8. Ahh so Now I get why the guys in your stories live in those places, I gotta agree with you on the layers and men in Sweaters and not to mention men in tight Jeans *drool*

    my hubby wears shorts year round, so nto a good look, I always wonder why I married him when he wears shorts in winter, not attractive at all! LMAO!!

    Can't wiat for the new stories, are they here yet??!!
