Manic May Days Part II
Well, it’s time to do the rest of the Manic May Days in hopes to bring a chuckle to your laugh and a smile to your face!
Tomorrow, the 17th, has National Pack Rat Day and one that for sure is one for me! Through many years of collecting odd pieces at thrift stores and flea markets, I have come to realize that some of the things I picked up for a buck or two, are actually worth quite a bit more and it’s time for yours truly to open my own junk store! This day also holds the debut of the merry-go-round in Turkey way back in 1620, rode many of them in my time!
The 18th is No Dirty Dishes Day and Visit Your Relatives Day. You could kill two birds with one stone on this one, just show up at their house at dinner time and wah-lah, no dirty dishes in your kitchen!
World’s largest Lego was completed on this day, the 19th. Somebody sure had way too much time on their hands! Send An Electronic Card Day is also in the works today, awe, isn’t that special! Frog Jumping Day, Ride A Bike to Work Day and National Bake Sale Day all fall on this date too. Aren’t bake sales illegal yet, I mean unless you have some kind of damn permit from our wonderful government or something?
The 20th is Be A Millionaire Day, so after we win the new Florida Mega Millions this weekend, Kenny and I will head off to Gainsville to collect our monies after we bid you guys a final adios amigos as we will have better things to do.
I Need A Patch For That falls on the 21st, and I’d like to have lots of patches to put over a bunch of our politicians mouths, anyone agree? And again we have, End Of The World Day, wasn’t that suppose to be in December? Who makes these things up anyway?
Oh, I bet I know who made this one up, Toothpaste Tube Day! Yep, on the 22nd all those fanatics who squeeze toothpaste from the end of the tube, decided to get even with those who squeeze from the middle, I bet cha!
The 23rd is Lucky Penny Day and that sucker better be heads up or it’s gonna stay right where it is as far as I’m concerned as I have had very bad luck with pennies with their tails up in the past!
Scavenger Hunt Day falls on the 24th and brings back fond memories of a time when husband put me on one in our apartment, leaving notes for me to follow in order to find a gift he had bought me, such a romantic! Today is also Mary Had A Little Lamb Day and I ask is there any “rhyme” or reason for this one, baa!
The 25th is National Something Day and makes me think of when I walk into a room and know I went there for a reason, but what was that something! Maybe a day in honor of us old fogies? Nerd or Geek Pride Day and makes me think of that James Bond movie Golden Eye where the bad guy says, “I am invincible” just before he gets blown up! Don’t know why that popped into my head, must be that something day is actually working! Also today, National Brown Bag It Day. Now really, does anyone actually use brown bags for their lunches any more? If so, why did they invent vinyl lunch bags and coolers to carry your food?
Another Gone To Pott Day is on the 28th and it seems that day falls about every month or so! I guess the way things are going in this crazy world, it probably wouldn’t hurt to have this one every day!
And finally to end the month of May, on the 30th, we have My Buckets Got A Hole In It Day. Try bailing out your sinking boat with that one and see where it gets you, in a lot of deep water I’m sure!
Well that’s the best I can do for the end of Manic May Days! Hope you enjoy reading and I’ll be back with I jest you not June holidays real soon!
