Events and Celebrations
Today, we rule the day…tomorrow the world…bwah hah hah hah hah. INTERNATIONAL LEFT-HANDERS DAY celebrates that special 10% of the population who mystify right handers by the way we write with pen and pencil (that is by design by the way). Awhile back, left-handedness was a sign of the devil and students who wrote left-handed were forcibly converted to right hand. My first-grade teacher wanted to try and change my hand, but Mom stepped in and said no. Here is to all of my fellow lefties and southpaws. Celebrate your day. Our Global Control Meeting is at 11:00 today.
NATIONAL BOWLING DAY rolls a strike with us. Hit the lanes and shoot for that turkey. Or, if you are like me, just go have fun.
If you wanna get outside today – NATIONAL GARAGE SALE DAY has just the bargains you are looking for. Be prepared to do a little haggling and you just may walk away with that one treasure you have been hunting for.
I could not separate these next two even if I wanted. NATIONAL FILET MIGNON DAY and NATIONAL PROSECCO DAY pair nicely. This tender, savory cut of beef goes great with this sparkling wine – or so, I am guessing. I just may have to find out for myself.
