The Days of Our Lives

By Jennifer Poenix

Maggie Montgomery came across a 2009 calendar that lists all kinds of “days.” For example, so far this year, we’ve already had “National Spaghetti Day,” “Dress Up Your Pet Day,” and “Winnie the Pooh Day.”

Somebody realized it was National Pie Day last Friday, so of course we ordered pizza and had lemon meringue for dessert.

Yesterday (January 27) was Chocolate Cake Day. I was made aware of this fact on Monday, so when Stephanie Rose headed to Target and asked if anybody needed anything, I said “Yes, chocolate cake because tomorrow is National Chocolate Cake Day.” She brought back a devil’s food cake mix, and I baked it yesterday morning, and then we had cake! And then Michelle Brandt brought cake too, so we had more cake!

Today is National Kazoo Day. Scott Hall suggested to Mark Tarner that he broadcast today’s “Currents” in an all-kazoo format, but Mark wouldn’t go for it. I don’t blame him, although I do play a mean kazoo.

Mark your calendars: February 10 is National Cream Cheese Brownie Day.
