Remember the other day when I said that some days have several “National” day this or that. Well it seems the panel of people that decide what day this is got a bit carried away with February first. Today when I looked this is what I found:
FEBRUARY 1, 2019 | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY | NATIONAL GET UP DAY | NATIONAL FREEDOM DAY | NATIONAL TEXAS DAY | BUBBLE GUM DAY | NATIONAL BAKED ALASKA DAY | NATIONAL SERPENT DAY | NATIONAL SELF-CHECK MONTH | NATIONAL ENROLLED AGENTS MONTH | NATIONAL FASTING DAY
Before reading what each day was about and how to observe, I had my own version.
National wear red day, brought to you by the garment worker’s union. Go to your local department store and buy a new red shirt and wear it.
National get up day brought to you by Alarm clocks of the world. I’m thinking any day you wake up above ground is a celebrations in itself.
National Freedom day. Very important as I’m lucky enough to be born and still live in a country where I can say and write about anything I want and not get into too much trouble, unless I post something on Face Book. That’s a whole other story.
National Texas day brought to you by the group Little Texas. All said in their song:
God blessed Texas With His own hand Brought down angels from the promised land Gave ’em a place where they could dance
If you want to see heaven, brother, here’s your chance
I’ve been sent to spread the message
God blessed Texas. Apparently, Little Texas has never traveled through West Texas….I rest my case.
National Bubble Gum day brought to you by Bazooka. If I have to explain that to you, you might be too young to read this.
National Baked Alaska Day. Just what in the hell is a baked Alaska? Desert or breakfast? Baking ice cream always sounded like a mess in my over to me. Isn’t melted ice cream sort of like milk or sweat cream? So confused.
National Serpent Day, oh my lord and little fishes. Is this some kind of devil worshiping? I don’t even want to look at that explanation. Scary.
Now here’s one of interest, National Self-Check day. Oh my mind goes to so many places, and probably not anywhere near what will be advised on how to observe this day. I picture ladies checking their hair and makeup, looking in the mirror to see if their outfit makes their butts look big and guys, well just adjusting the family jewels. That’s how my brain works.
National Enroll Agents Month. Thank goodness, the FBI is finally seeing just how stupid their actions has been lately and they are trying to enroll new agents with some sense.
Last but not least is National Fasting Day. Yeah, right. I fast everyday, between breakfast and lunch and between lunch and dinner. Have you ever tried fasting? I’m sure that some pencil thin woman who says she forgets to eat thought of this. Who the hell forgets to eat? I tend to forget when to stop eating. Guess that’s why I checked this morning to see if my outfit made my butt look big. Rude awakening, it’s my big butt that makes my butt look big.
As for me, I’m going to celebrate the National Get Up Day. Get up, get going, love your family and your friends. Make a stranger smile and be kind. That’s a good way to celebrate every day and maybe blow a few bubbles.
