October is Cookie Month, National Diabetes Month, as well as Sarcasm Month. Do you see a correlation between these three things? Hmmmm? I still wonder who the guy is that has the cushy job of making up all these weird holidays.
Don’t get me wrong. I love celebrating. I invent a lot of things to celebrate myself.
I’ll say to my husband, “Hey, you know what today is, don’t you?”
Him: “No, what?”
Me: “It’s a spectacular day. We should go out for sushi.”
Him: “What’s so spectacular about it? There’s nothing on the calendar.”
Me: I point to the calendar. “See right here. It’s Tuesday.”
Me: “Hey, do you know how much money I save you by not clipping coupons?”
Me: “Well….a lot! By skipping out on all those ‘great’ deals each week, I’ve possibly saved you millions. I think we should celebrate by going to Cheesecake Factory.”
My son scores a goal in his soccer game.
It suddenly becomes a national holiday that we must celebrate by buying milk shakes.
But I’ve digressed…a lot. Sorry.
All I meant to say in this post was: HAPPY OCTOBER.
Celebrate Cookies! (I feel Cookie Monster’s pain in this video as he tries to get those dang cookies!)
Celebrate Diabetes! (I don’t have a video about this…do you?)
Celebrate Sarcasm! (Ditto)
Whatever you want to celebrate, October’s the month to put your party hat on and blow your horn. Whooooot!
Personally, of the three holidays, Cookies won’t be forgotten in MY household. I will diligently celebrate them by making and eating them…and then starting the process again. I am a stalwart, loyal cookie fan. Have been for years.
Thanks for stopping by…now go celebrate something. It’s October!
