Tuesday, August 21, 2018
"Go on. Do it now!"
Little Susie, a six year old , complained:”Mother, I’ve got a stomachache.”
“That’s because our stomach is empty”, the mother replied. “You would feel better if you had something in it.”
That afternoon her daddy came complaining that he had a severe headache all day.
Susie perked up: ” That’s because it’s empty”, she said. “You’d feel better if you had something in it.”
It's Senior Citizens' Day! A day to recognize the work and contributions of those over 60 years young. It's also Eid-Al-Adha, Day of the Sacrifice (an Islamic holiday, the 3rd day of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca), Poet's Day (a great counterpart to the Bad Poetry Day; pick your favorite poet to relax), Spumoni Day (oh, yummy!), Internet Self-care Day (a day to encourage discussions of the myriad ways of self-care; Spark is already on it), Ninoy Aquino Day (a holiday in the Philippines to honor the 1983 assassination of Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr.), and Youth Day in Morocco (a holiday in Morocco to recognize the importance of the young men and women in the building of their country).
