This is my personal favorite week of the whole year – it’s my birthday week! But aside from me, there’s a few other things to celebrate this week, including senior citizens, a few kinds of pie, and waffles.
Monday, August 19
International Bow Day
Hair bows? Violin bows? Crossbows? I feel like this needs to be a bit more specific.
National Aviation Day
Am I alone by LOVING the whole flying experience? I love all of it – except for the assholes that crowd the gate.
National Soft Ice Cream Day
Like soft serve? What a weird way to word it.
Tuesday, August 20
National Radio Day
Does anyone still listen to the radio?
National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day
Wednesday, August 21
National Spumoni Day
National Brazilian Blowout Day
I used to get these until I got a little freaked out about putting that many chemicals on my head…
National Senior Citizens Day
Buy one a coffee or simply listen to a story from a senior today.
Thursday, August 22
National Surgical Oncologist Day
Fitting that this is on my birthday, since I wouldn’t be here. So shout out to those heroes.
Never Bean Better Day
Less fitting because the only kind of beans I like are cherry jelly beans.
National Pecan Torte Day
Gonna have this as my birthday cake.
National Bao Day
I haven’t had a lot of bao because a lot of it has shellfish in it and then I’ll die, but the kinds I have had have been good.
National Tooth Fairy Day
Why did we not think it was creepy as children that a stranger was putting money under our pillow while we were asleep?
Friday, August 23
National Ride The Wind Day
“Enjoy the last days of summer and the warm summer breezes.” Um, it’s a Friday. We are all at work.
National Sponge Cake Day
Eh, in the realm of cakes, it’s not a winner.
Saturday, August 24
National Peach Pie Day
And in the realm of pies, neither is this one.
National Maryland Day
We can blame the state for lax bros – jousting became the official sport of Maryland in 1962; but lacrosse became the official team sport of the state in 2004.
National Waffle Day
A waffle with strawberries and whipped cream? Yes, please.
Sunday, August 25
National Park Service Founders Day
National Parks are pretty cool, so props to those guys.
National Whiskey Sour Day
An underrated drink, IMHO.
National Kiss and Make Up Day
Nah, I’d rather hold a grudge.
National Banana Split Day
Not my favorite type of sundae, but it’s not like I’d turn it down.
