a chilling holiday for august
August seems like the longest month of the year. It's hot, it's humid and the days last forever. Pity there's no national holiday to break up the monotony of four weeks of dealing with people who don't wear deodorant in this weather.
While the Farkers are enjoying themselves inventing such a holiday (National Knight Out; Bong Appreciate Day; White History Month, etc.), I'll propose my own holiday.
I figure we'll just drag the whole thing out and wait until the end of August so we can really let loose and party as the summer winds down. For you consideration:
August 30: the birthday of Ted Williams. We can call it Holiday on Ice.
The kids can play freeze tag, the adults can have frozen drinks and then we can all beat up a pinata shaped like Ted's son John Henry. Of course, the pinata is filled with ice cubes.
So, whose coming over on August 30? BYOIC (bring your own ice cream).
Got any better ideas?
