Middle of July "What is there to do?" July 15th



July 15th

I remember summer vacations... wow, summer vacations, almost makes me want to switch occupations, anyway, right about now I would be bored stiff. Swimming lessons would be over, and the last little must-do-everything-before-school-starts-frenzy had not begun. Right about now it would be hot and boring, and my poor mother would be asked about 697 times a day "What is there to do?" The poor woman didn't know about all these daily holidays that she could have entertained me and my three brothers with.

Winnie the Pooh Day, Go Hug a Cow Day, Tapioca Pudding Day, Respect Canada Day, Toss Away the Could Haves and Should Haves Day, Gummi Worm Day, or Personal Chef's Day, Shark Awareness Day, Woodie Wagon Day, Ice Cream Cone Day

That's right, ten days to celebrate today, if you can't find anything else to do. If you get really creative you can celebrate all ten... like sticking gummi worms and tapioca pudding in your ice cream cone while sneaking out to go cow tipping on your way to the aquarium to learn about sharks in your woodie wagon while reading Winnie the Pooh, and calling your personal chef on the way to order a Canadian meal to be ready when you get back so you don't worry about any could haves or should haves today.

But, that's not what I am doing today. I'm meeting some friends for Thai food, and we might go to a movie after dinner. Ya' see, adult summers are like that. We do pretty much what we do in the winter. Cow tipping sounds so much more fun.

Hugging a cow coupled with Woodie Wagon day seems a bit problematic, but that's probably only to me...
