July 10, 2013: even though I’m more of a daiquiri girl myself, I’m open to having a pineapply-coconutty fancy drink on Piña Colada Day. As for Teddy Bear Picnic Day, I think I’ll do what the song recommends, and stay at home. It’s kind of a creepy song, in its way; it sounds like teddy bears get up of their own accord, somehow frightfully animated, and head out to the woods for a gathering. If they’re so innocent, why does the song threaten not to go to the woods alone, and that it’s safer to stay at home? Creepy.
Also, if you’re the type to go barefoot in the grass, Don’t Step on a Bee Day should be every day. Been there, done that, cried my eyes out.
