Go to Live Theatre Day
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
~ Oscar Wilde
Since it is also Get Up and Dance Day, I feel compelled to say: No matter how much the story and the music move you, it is bad form to get up and dance while watching a theatre performance. You won’t often hear me discouraging spontaneous joyous dancing, but in this one instance, I must. Everywhere else, go for it.
And just in case the live theatre you choose to go to, to celebrate today’s holiday, is stand up comedy, you should know it’s also Kiss a Comedian Day. Yesterday was Make Someone Smile Day, so comedians everywhere deserve a kiss for yesterday’s hard work. You have a green light (well at least from me), to plant a juicy one on the comic.
Can you stand one more? It’s Jump for Jelly Beans Day. Really. I can’t make these thing up!
Happy birthday J.K. Rollins, born this day in 1965. Want to see another Potter birthday? Check out July 28 when it was technically Everybody’s Birthday. Other birthdays for today are Wesley Snipes (1962) and Whitney Young (1921).
Today’s your last chance to check out July over on our calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness.
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, just for grins, you get a different Theatre Smiley in the Smiley-a-Day emailer.
