10/14/18 Success

Sunday, October 14, 2018

"You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not be paid for it." Oprah Winfrey

"With all the pushing and shoving to grab this year's doorbusters, they ought to call it Black and Blue Friday."

Bill and Marla thought that they had discovered a genius way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their 12-year-old son in the apartment.

He was promptly sent out on the balcony and told to report on all the neighborhood activities.

The boy began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation.

“There’s a car being towed from the parking lot,” he said.

“An ambulance just drove by.” A few moments passed.

“Looks like the Andersons have company,” he called out.

“Matt’s riding a new bike, and the Coopers are having sex.”

Mom and Dad shot up in bed.

“How do you know that?” the startled father asked.

“Their kid is standing out on the balcony too,” his son replied.

It's Father-Daughter Day! This day honors the relationship between a father and daughter. So many memories are made with this duo. It's Be Bald and Be Free Day (be proud of your baldness, no matter how it came about), Chocolate-Covered Insect Day (for the brave and adventurous; the insects are roasted before being dipped into the chocolate; crickets and ants are the favorites), Dessert Day (honors all desserts, of all kinds; what's your favorite?), FRUMP Day (Frugal, Responsible, Unpretentious, Mature Persons! stand up and take a bow, this is your day), World Standards Day (pays tribute to the collaborative effort of experts around the world to develop voluntary technical agreements to create international standards and guidelines), lowercase day (a day to flaunt the capital rules and type in only lowercase), Pastor Appreciation Day (several denominations honor their reverends, pastors, and spiritual leaders this day), Yeager broke the sound barrier in 1947, traveling faster than mach1, and Winnie-the-Pooh made his literary debut in 1926 with Piglet, Roo, Owl, Rabbit, and Eeyore; Tigger was added in 1928).
