It’s a busy day – so let’s start off with NATIONAL MIMOSA DAY. No better breakfast than waffles, bacon, orange juice and champagne. Any orange juice will do as well as any champagne, no need to get too fancy.
After the dishes are finished step outside and embrace nature with NATIONAL LOVE A TREE DAY. Appreciating these majestic wonders that provide us with oxygen is not hard to do. If you want to go as far as hugging a tree, for today, it’s ok.
Maybe find a shady spot, grab a book, and celebrate NATIONAL BIOGRAPHER’S DAY. Whether it’s an autobiography or a well-respected person’s story, pick a good one and enjoy it.
NATIONAL DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOUR NEIGHBOR DAY may bring out the best in us as well as improve community relations.
One way to do this is to celebrate NATIONAL BARBECUE DAY. Nothing brings people together like the smell of that smoke, the tangy taste and the all-around good vibes that only come from the grill.
If the outdoorsy grillin’ thing is not for you, opt for the fancier choice with NATIONAL COQUILLES SAINT JACQUES DAY. Scallops covered in bread crumbs and cheese, simmered in a wine sauce along with mushrooms and cream will take dinner to the next level.
If you are so inclined, head out after dinner, hit the mall or your local tattoo parlor and celebrate NATIONAL PIERCING DAY. With the huge variety of jewelry and plenty of places to stick them, there are plenty of ways for the piercing enthusiast to celebrate.
Now we come to the end of the day when it’s time to relax. What better way than to gaze into the aquarium and admire NATIONAL SEAMONKEY DAY. Yep, the same entertaining, seemingly live, sea monkeys sold in the back of comic books actually have a day. You would buy the eggs, watch them hatch and then they would bob up and down in the water. Sea monkeys actually made it into space with John Glenn aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. That’s it for the day and I thank you for joining me. May all of you have a wonderful evening.
