Original Coke Returns
The day will come when
soda will be seen like cigarettes;
no value, addictive, bad for your health.
~ Ruth, the Smiley Lady
It’s also drink a Pina Colada Day— no Coke needed there… Or is there? I have no idea. I once worked as a bartender and had to ask the patrons to tell me the recipes for the drinks they ordered. It made for quite a bit of comedic banter–and tips!
This day in 1866 the A.S.P.C.A. was founded. Please: adopt, don’t shop!! Want a kitty or puppy? Get your newest family member from an animal rescue facility!! Save a life. It’s also Don’t Step on a Bee Day. Another life you can save!
It’s the start of Be Playful Week over on a calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness.
Today we say happy birthday to Arlo Guthrie (1947), Jessica Simpson (1980), and the state of Wyoming (1890). Just FYI, Jessica is a big supporter of Operation Smile, just like I am! If you’ve got a 5 dollar bill in your pocket, that you could part with and never really miss, you can donate here. Come on. It’ll make you feel good to help out these great kids.
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.
