February 23, 2014: Today is the last day of the Winter Olympics, and I hope you got to watch some of the coverage. Especially the curling, because today is Curling is Cool Day. I’ve actually been curling, as one of my best friends in high school belonged to the local curling club. Since I didn’t have the custom shoes (one grippy, one slidy), I wore regular sneakers with a plastic pad strapped to the bottom of one, so I could push with one foot and glide with the other. It’s great fun. Today is also Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day; after taking your buddy for a walk yesterday, be sure to give him a treat today.
(The very idea of dog biscuits makes me think of the courtroom scene in Intolerable Cruelty, where Heinz the Baron Krauss von Espy asks for “hard, crunchy bones for the teeth” for his dog.) (http://www.anyclip.com/movies/intolerable-cruelty/vyUOJJm7nhtmb/#!quotes/)
