I mean, it only comes once a year! What if all our nation's waffle freaks clean out the shelves, and I'm stuck with crappy margarine and Aunt Jemima? Is that a chance you're willing to take? Not me.
But seriously, folks, every week I get some sort of press release about National This-or-That Day. Obviously it's a marketing strategy, and who can blame folks for trying to think of creative ways to peddle their goods. But more often than not I find myself rolling my eyes at things like Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, National Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day ... and that's just February. (Don't get me wrong: I love International Talk Like a Pirate Day).
So here's what I want to know:
• What food item that doesn't currently have its own day should get its own day?
• Fill in the blank: What's the most ridiculous National _____ Day that you know of?
• What's the most absurd National _____ Day you can concoct?
• What else is on your mind?
