April 18, 2014: Happy Superman Day! It was this day back in 1938 when Action Comics #1 was published, introducing ol’ Supes to the world. Today is also National Pet Owners Day (sometimes called Pet Owners Independence Day, which makes even less sense). We certainly honor the pets enough around here; I guess those who are the pets’ minions should get a day now and then.
Last but not least, it’s International Jugglers Day (not to be confused with World Juggling Day in June, which has a whiff more legitimacy to it). I used to be able to juggle tennis balls, but I seem to have lost the knack. I could still probably do scarves, though.
