CALENDAR OF ODD EVENTS -- Eccentric events and odd occasions to celebrate in June 2005 –
If June is “bust’n out all over”, you’re probably a green-thumb type, a frisky cowpoke, or perhaps just a “Hot Foot powder” aficionado.
On other hand, maybe you’re one of those testy technical types who are rather relieved to know that we’re half way through Gregorian calendar.
Besides celebrating “Clean Air” day (time to let those soiled socks in one’s bottom drawer see light of day), it’s also time to honor fathers everywhere by giving them a token of your appreciation …a frigging flyswatter!
So without further adieu, before bidding a fond farewell, and oodles of glad-handing good-byes…perhaps take a glance at one’s in store for jolly month of June.
June 1 – CLEAN AIR APPRECIATION DAY (Time to honor those with a compelling need to air their dirty linen in public or engage in a natural urge to break wind in elevators).
June 2 – NO IMPROVEMENT NECESSARY DAY (For all those “I’m all right Jack/Jill” people you know who are fine and dandy just way they are thank you!)
June 3 – PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD DAY (Vanquishing one’s veggies, eating giggling Jell-O with a fork and mashed mayhem never looked like so much fun!)
June 4 – GEMINI APPRECIATION DAY (Time to honor all those heavenly twins you know who are also restless, impractical, gossipy, nervous and a tad capricious or fickle).
June 5 – SUCCESS OBJECT RECOGNITION DAY (Time to flaunt whatever makes you feel like a King or Queen including your newly renovated throne room if you wish).
June 6 – NATIONAL KICK-THE-CAN DAY (When going gets tough, it’s nice to know one can harrumph, utter a hearty grunt, or kick daylights out of a trash can).
June 7 – INTERNATIONAL BELLY-DANCING DAY (It’s never too late to flaunt your flab, wag your tail and do hoochy-koochy ‘cause that’s what life’s all about!)
June 8 – SANDBOX APPRECIATION DAY (Time to whip out shovels, pails, beach balls and water balloons; play fair …no pulling hair and no tattle-tales please!)
June 9 – JUG BAND DAY (For all those folks who can’t hold a tune but can play a kazoo, a pennywhistle, and drum on pots…now who says that aint’ music!)
June 10 – NATIONAL TOOTH FAIRY APPRECIATION DAY (In honor of Goddess-of-Grin-&-Bear-It and those who yank chompers all day long for a living).
June 11 – FINGERNAIL FASHION DAY (Time to decorate those delightful digits with clashing colors, stylish sparkle, or perhaps even super-size them for a change!)
June 12 – NOT-YOUR-AVERAGE-ART DAY (A fine way to honor messy munchkin inside you with plenty of papier-mâché, finger-paints, or oodles of play-doh!)
June 13 – TEFLON SUIT APPRECIATION DAY (In honor of those who manage to survive by letting all manner of things slide off their backs and onto someone else’s!)
June 14 – NAUGHTY T-SHIRT DAY (A way to pacify politically-incorrect people in your life who have a bad habit of buying novelty t-shirts with raunchy, ribald retorts).
