Will it go away?

Take today literally, metaphorically or both, it’s Lumpy Rug Day!

Literally.

It’s Spring!  Unless you bought it that way, a lumpy rug may mean it’s time to do a little Spring cleaning or replacing.   If under the rug is where you continuously sweep your dirt until you forget about it and a lump is the only thing left to remind you, you’re nasty. Whip out the Rug Doctor, shampoo, cleaning tools, and get busy until that damn spot comes out.  You might also try trimming those bumps and stragglers that have accumulated over the years.  If your carpet doesn’t look like new after some TLC it may be time to upgrade for a less lumpy rug.

Metaphorically.

It’s Spring!  Unless you’d like to drive yourself or someone else crazy with bottled up emotions, unpack your stuff.  If you’re habitually passive aggressive or worse sweep all your junk under the rug, today is the day to do a little Spring cleaning.  Spill your guts to your friends, family, mate, your pet or the person in the mirror.  It’s time to clean the mess that’s blocking your blessings and vision.  You might also try trimming those bumps and stragglers that have accumulated over the years.  If they are real, they can handle everything about you, if they aren’t, it may be time to upgrade to a circle that will cause fewer lumps under your rug.

Babies, babies, babies!

Since I have baby fever and a very real yearning to give my nephew a cousin, today I’m celebrating Baby Day!  Rather than tributing truffles, that look like herpes and smell like feet or downing a box of chocolate truffles with more calories and sugar than I’m allowed to have, I’d rather reach out and grab a squishy, little, soft bundle of baby. Celebrate today by either making or playing with a baby, your choice.   Have loads of fun and…

HOLIDAY ON MY FRIENDS!

Law and Flowers

It’s officially May 1st and today is an actual holiday, passed by Congress, not one made up by greeting card companies or a group with a sincere affinity for chocolate covered cashews. It’s Law Day!   Law Day was introduced by President Eisenhower in 1958 to remind Americans to honor the role of the Law in creating the United States.  Law Day was also a retaliation holiday against May Day, which, at the time, was seen by some Americans as a communist holiday.

Law must still have a long way to go.”

I’m off to pick flowers.
