Kev’s Daily Take On 08/25/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations

KISS AND MAKE UP DAY is the best part of arguing. Hammer out a solution at work, make amends with your friend or show your significant other a little affection as the argument gets put to bed.  And if there is no argument, go ahead and kiss anyway.

Who’s ready for a bargain?  SECONDHAND WARDROBE DAY will steer you to some gently used clothing that you can get for pennies on the dollar.  Thrift stores, consignment shops and other secondhand shops might just have that perfect outfit you’ve been looking for.

You might be hungry after all of that shopping and kissing and NATIONAL BURGER DAY will take care of that.  We have our burger holidays in the US, but today’s is actually British.  That’s ok, I will take mine with mustard, onion, pickles and relish please – medium done.

Let’s raise a glass to NATIONAL WHISKEY SOUR DAY.  Pour a little whiskey, mix in some lemon juice and sugar and garnish with a cherry and half an orange slice.  This cocktail offers a unique taste that goes down smooth.  As always, DO NOT drink and drive.

Our dessert of the day is on overload with NATIONAL BANANA SPLIT DAY.  We are talking 3 scoops of ice cream with 3 different toppings topped with nuts, whipped cream and cherries – all stuffed between a split banana.  Wow, I’ll have a little insulin with that please – but they are good.

On this day…
