This Week in Ridiculous Holidays: September 30th – October 6th

I’m on vacation this week, so every day is a holiday. And I’ll be able to celebrate with tacos, vodka and homemade cookies, so what’s better than that? Not much, I dare say.

Monday, September 30

National Chewing Gum Day

Chewing gum? Yes. The sound of someone chewing gum? NO.

Is this the same as a face mask?

Maybe this will be the one day mine will do what I want.

Both ways, uphill, in the snow.

National Pumpkin Seed Day 

I buy a pumpkin every October just to roast the seeds. And before you say it, yes I know I can buy them, but that’s not as much fun.

Or better yet, buy a cop a coffee. They deserve it.

National Rhode Island Day

“The world’s largest bug is on the roof of New England Pest Control in Providence. It’s a big blue termite, 58 feet long and 928 times actual termite size.” Tis true – I drive by it on my way to CT because there’s nothing to actually do in RI.

National Do Something Nice Day

I did something nice yesterday and now I have a broken toe, so take that for what you will.

Here you go – enjoy!
