Hey, kittens and puppies how the hell are ya?? Fun fact, in Austin, TX it has been hotter than 100º F (38º C for non-Americans) for 25 out of 31 days in August. So for the past month, anytime anyone has asked me how I’m doing, the answer is almost always “I’m hot,” which is not a good feeling! But my friends, August is over after today, and in some places of the world that means that you’re already feeling the beginnings of my favorite season and yours, autumn.
Autumn means pumpkin spice everything, leggings with boots, flannels, femmes knitting scarves for you, and cuffing season. What is cuffing season, you ask? It’s that time when the weather gets a little cooler, you go out less, and you begin to look for someone to keep you and your bed warm during the long winter months. According to Urban Dictionary, one might define cuffing season as,
Usually the colder months; i.e. fall or winter, when new relationships start and old relationships turn into engagements. The persons in said relationships are “cuffed”, meaning that they no longer seek non-platonic relationships with others.
In a nutshell, these next coming weeks are preparatory. Wash your sheets, get new pillows, and make a new makeout playlist, amongst other things. Friends this is why we’re here today: I want to give you the tools so that you can have the best cuffing season you’ve ever had. I’ve started a collaborative playlist, and in my heart of hearts, I want us to fill this baby up with our favorite songs to get in the mood. I want bass, I want provocative lyrics, I want all the things that make you gyrate your hips and want to get close and personal with your number one (and/or two, or three, etc.). I’ve started the playlist for you with a few of my favorites. Please add (by clicking the title and using your own Spotify account) any and everything that makes you feel sexy and alive.
So friends, what songs do you need to have on a makeout+ playlist? Tell me about them in the comments and add them to the playlist! I want this to be so long that you and your potential boo could make out for hours and hours and hours while the crisp air cools down the earth around you (*cries in Texas*). I also want to hear about the non-cuffing season related things going on in your life. Did you just start classes? Tell me what you learned! Did you have a plain old, regular shmegular week at work? I still cannot wait to hear about it. I’m so glad to be here with you and I can’t wait for us to talk about everything from making out to the mundane details of your life together!
