"The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have."
Jim, Scott and Alex are tired after traveling all day and check into a hotel. When they get to reception, they find out they'll have to walk 75 flights of stairs to get to their room because the elevator is out of order. Jim suggests that they do something interesting to pass time while they walk the 75 flights. Jim will tell jokes, Scott will sing songs, and Alex will tell sad stories. So Jim tells jokes for 25 flights, Scott sings songs for 25 flights and Alex tells sad stories for 24 flights. When they reach the 75th floor, Alex tells his saddest story of all, "Guys, I left our room key at reception."
It's Panda Day and World Sleep Day! Perfect excuse to go curl up with my stuffed panda bear. It's also Campfire Girls Day, Curlew Day (a type of wading bird), Freedom of Information Day (so needed now), Goddard Day (engineer of rockets), Lips Appreciation Day (they do so much for us and we ignore them), No Selfies Day (yes, please), St. Urho Day (important Minnesota folklore figure), and Transit Driver Day (I couldn't get anywhere without them). Another important one: Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. It's an on-going struggle.
