I follow YahooNews on Twitter. Now besides bringing me the top breaking news stories, they more importantly tell me what “Special Day” it is. Let me clarify. Some are common like Earth Day, Flag Day, or Groundhog Day (where is my spring weather Punxsutawney Phil!) Others are less common but still important like Donut Day or Margarita Day (that was yesterday).
Well today my friends, it is a pretty big day. Today, February 23, 2011, is Inconvenience Yourself Day, Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, International Banana Bread Day and Tootsie Roll Day.
Did you know there is a website called InconvenienceYourself.com. Of course there is. It is all about doing things to inconvenience yourself that in turn help others. Holding the door open for others, volunteering, recycling, and just helping others. Yeah, that is good and all but I don’t consider those things an inconvenience, just being a good person. To me, inconveniencing myself (that sounds naughty) would be actually putting my clean laundry in the dresser or closet instead of just leaving it in the basket. Actually making my bed in the morning instead of just leaving a big mess of bundled up blankets in a pile. Actually washing a pair of pants or shirt instead of just Fabreezing it. You know, those kind of things are such an inconvenience.
Or maybe that wasn’t really what they were going for on Inconvenience Yourself Day and instead there is a day called "Don’t Be Such A Lazy Bum Day" that would be better suited for me to celebrate. Either way, I have decided that I am not celebrating this day today and waiting for "Convenience Yourself Day" which seems like a much better day to celebrate!
Also, I will be buying a bag of Tootsie Rolls later and eating as many as I can before I get sick whilst also doing the Tootsee Roll in honor of Tootsie Roll Day. Oh you know you want to see that tootsie roll…to the left, to the left, to the right, to the right; to the front, to the front, to the back, to the back; now slide, slide baby slide, just slide baby slide. Yep, that is MY kind of special day unlike boring International Banana Bread Day…there is no fun dance to do while you eat banana bread. LAME.
As for Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, I have no interest in you. If I was dog (leave the bitch jokes alone please) I would be very appreciative today. But alas, I am not.
I hope everyone has fun celebrating today!
