Egg Salad Day
What is my loftiest ambition?
I’ve always wanted
to throw an egg
at an electric fan.

I’ve tried an egg in a microwave.
That was fun.

It’s also Crocodile Day over on our September calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness. I’ve never found a Smiley Face on a crocodile–never been that close. But, cross my heart, pop over to the monthly calendar to see a Croc Smiley.
Today we say happy birthday to two who are no longer with us, Hank Williams (1923) and John Ritter (1948). They both died way too young!
A personal comment from the Smiley Lady, who is sometimes the Shaking in her Boots Lady, about another holiday scheduled for today, Responsible Dog Owner Day. I have always been kind of scared of dogs. Have even kind of thought I didn’t like dogs. Then I met some dogs with responsible owners and my whole feeling for dogs changed. I met dogs who didn’t jump on me, with owners that didn’t allow them to “playfully” nip me. No barking. No growling. These were some really great dogs. Who’da thought? Not me. I’d had no idea. Too many experience where a dog was allowed to scare me to the point of shaking (and secretly thinking I was going to die) as the owner laughed dismissively and said they were, “just being friendly.” You could tell the well behaved dogs knew (had been taught) to take it slowly with strangers, particularly strangers who looked a tad spooked. And, I really think these dogs were just as happy as the ones that hadn’t been taught social graces. To all the responsible dog owners of the world, this dog-scared-girl says thanks!
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 Egg Smiley in the Smiley-a-Day emailer.
