Dumpster Divers’ Day
It is by going down
into the abyss, diving,
that we recover
the treasures of life.
~ Joseph Campbell
Today is your first day to check out all the other Smileys over on our AUGUST calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness. There it’s Play Ball Day a Baseball Smiley from the SF Giants.
It is both Girlfriends Matter Day and Sisters Day. I’m perceiving a little unfair treatment for the other half of the population, the men. So I’m just going to rename both of those. Going forward I’ll be calling them Friends Matter Day and Siblings Day.
The first song most of us learned on the piano was copyrighted this day in 1877. Happy Birthday, “Chopsticks.”
And there are a few other notable birthdays that fall on August 1st. The Smiley-est of birthdays to Spiderman (1962), MTV (1981), Jerry Garcia (1942), Tempestt Bledsoe (1973), and the San Francisco Cable Cars (1873). The latter makes a cameo in my blog about Why Not Just Skip Being Embarrassed and Laugh About it Now.
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.
