This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: July 22nd – July 28th

Holy shit, I may just explode on Thursday. Wine. Cheese. A hot fudge Sunday. On top of the gallon of Diet Coke that I drank in the McDonald’s drive-thru the day before. But aside from all of the eating I’m going to do this week, there’s also some family celebrations and some co-worker days, so let’s get to it.

National Penuche Fudge Day

Not exactly sure what this is, but can any fudge be bad?

Best vacation I ever had involved reading in a hammock on the beach for 5 days.

Aren’t they just called exterminators?

National Merry-Go-Round Day

Um, won’t that make me puke up my hot fudge sundae and the wine and cheese? No thanks.

National Threading the Needle Day

I don’t need any of your fancy business talk. Just more wine and cheese and maybe another sundae.

National Hire a Veteran Day

You should. Or support companies that do.

National Refreshment Day

In case wine and cheese and a sundae weren’t enough.

Well, now I feel a lil sick and I didn’t even go on the Merry Go Round.

Sure. I like some of my aunts and uncles.

You main the dudes who fix my stuff after I break it? Those guys are saints.

Is it? Because my experience is that it kicks you in the gut and leaves you for dead.

National Scotch Day

Not my fav.

National Créme Bruléé Day

Big fan in restaurants, never made at home.

It’s the Garden State yet it smells like trash all the time?

Big fan of both milk chocolate and chocolate milk.

I try not to go in pools that thousands of strangers have peed in. I’ll stick to the one that my own family pees in, thanks.

National Parent’s Day

They already got Mother’s day and Father’s day. It’s not like their job is hard or anything.
