It's "National..." Day
It’s National fill in the blank day
I’m sorry (not really), but would someone explain why we
have so many “National” days?
In the last week there’s been National Dance Day (which is
great for getting at least a few people off their proverbial backsides),
National Lipstick Day (honest injun), National Lasagna Day and National
Cheesecake Day-do we really need a special day for everything?
I read that there’s a national clown day, peanut butter day
and even a national pickle day!
Next thing will be a national whole grain cereal for lunch day! (Maybe there is and I missed the
announcement) Why not a national
margarine day? I personally would love a
national “new and different way to prepare chicken” day.
Maybe I could make a list and sent it to my local senator
It could be something akin to:
Dear politician who supposedly does something for my
I want you to know that I’ve canvassed my home and the
members in it who vote promise to work at getting you re-elected if you get the
following subjects a day to call their own and the rest of us can either
celebrate or get a day off work for:
National torn rotator cuff day
National gout medication day
National Humira shot evening
eat high fiber cereal day
National day for those of us sick and tired of
trying to get Medicare to understand they can’t take back money from disabled
National wear a lot of make-up day (another for
not wearing any)
National don’t wear a bra day (men, make up your
own clothing item not to wear-Steve chose “ties”)
National I want to use the air-conditioner in my
home day without later having to give up eating day
And last National “stop making needless national
celebration days” day.
What do you think?
Anyone want to add a few to the list?
Maybe I’m getting crankier as I go on in life-but really, do
we need a day to celebrate lipstick, salty foods or fat cell producing treats?
I’m hoping my Scrooge-like demeanor brings some new comments
and maybe an opposite point of view to be blogged about at a later date. I’ll probably name it “National Cranky Blog”
