Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Memorial Day! Have a wonderful Fourth of July and a great Mother’s Day!
What’s that you say? Memorial Day has passed us by and it’s not July yet?
Well, why must our lives be so regulated that we can only celebrate something on a single day? There’s no law against giving your sweetheart a box of chocolates in June.
If you feel patriotic, wave the flag and stoke up that barbeque in December. Send your mother a card every month telling her how much you love her. And seriously, is there any good reason to only celebrate Isaac Newton’s birthday just once a year?
Okay, so maybe we don’t want kids randomly showing up at our doorstep asking for candy every other weekend.
Actually, that holiday makes no sense to me. The kiddies yell “Trick or Treat!” but when I ask them to show me a trick, they just stand there looking confused.
Come on, do a few handstands or juggle some candy apples for me!
But I digress (as usual). I wanted to talk about the noise flooding the media over the Memorial Day weekend. Sales on barbeque grills. Barbeque meats. Patio furniture. Articles on how to grill the perfect burger. How to throw a Martha Stewart party. How to make that perfect margarita.
