July 3, 2014: Today is National Chocolate Wafer Day, those majestic layered treats made of chocolate, chocolate frosting, and light and crunchy wafer cookies. Although I must confess, I prefer the golden wafers with the vanilla flavored frosting. Still, I wouldn’t kick a chocolate wafer out. Wafer sandwiches were one of the first things I ever saw made in a gluten-free formulation, and they’re not bad overall.
Today is also Stay Out of the Sun Day, which goes doubly so for Florida. July and August are so hot and gross here, spending a day out in the sun would melt your face off worse than if you’d looked inside the opened-up ark of the covenant. Staying out of the sun is also the best possible sunscreen.
