Why did the mullet cross the road?
April 22, 2010 - Rob Weaver
Whew! This has been a busy week. Or, according to some organizations, it has been six busy weeks.
That’s because observances this week include Administrative Professionals Week, Cleaning For A Reason Week, Coin Week (payday, anyone?), National Crime Victims Rights Week, National Volunteer Week and -- for those who haven’t noticed it is there -- Sky Awareness Week.
Those are just the observances set for April 18-24. National Park Week ends today, while Astronomy Week, Consumer Awareness Week, Fish Fry Week, National Inspirational News Week, Police Officers Who Gave Their Lives In The Line of Duty Week, National Paperboard Packaging Week, National Window Safety Week and Turnoff Week all began the 19th. I don’t know why fried fish doesn’t just get a day, or why a commemoration for police officers don’t last a whole month.
By the way, this week also brought us Adult Autism Day, Pet Owners Independence Day, World Amateur Radio Day, National Hanging Out Day, Oklahoma City Bombing Commemoration Day, National Pot Smokers Day, Administrative Professionals Day or Secretary's Day, Kindergarten Day, National Chocolate-covered Cashews Day, Chemists Celebrate The Earth Day, Earth Day, National Jelly Bean Day, Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day, Talk Like Shakespeare Day (methinks, in sooth, ’tis silly), World Book & Copyright Day, Astronomy Day, Bulldogs are Beautiful Day, Eeyore's Birthday Day, National Go Birding Day, National Rebuilding Day, Sense of Smell Day, Spring Astronomy Day and World Tai Chi & Qigong Day.
No, Pot Smokers Day and Chemists Celebrate The Earth Day weren’t simultaneous.
Oh, and in case you don’t have plans for the weekend, Interstate Mullet Toss Days will be April 24-25. Let me guess: Business on Saturday, party on Sunday. ...
