In the depth of winter
I finally realized
that there was in me
an invincible summer.
~ Albert Camus
It’s also Cotton Candy Day. Really? In the middle of winter? That’s as nutty as yesterday being Gazpacho Day. Shouldn’t both of these be celebrated in the summer? Good grief, I just found another one that seems misplaced,it’s Marshmallow Day. Anybody in the Northern Hemisphere roasting marshmallows in the midst of winter?
At least this one fits: Ear Muff Day! Phew. I was feeling a little Twilight Zone-ish.
It is also Fire Safety Day. How about we all hop off of our computers and go test all our smoke alarms. I want a smoke detector that I don’t have to climb onto a chair and get really close to when it’s screeching. How about a remote that you push to silence it temporarily. After the 15 minutes it would automatically turn itself back on. I’m forever pulling out the battery when the kitchen gets smokey and then forgetting to put it back in.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Creek Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
