May 1, 2014: Yeesh, people. There are TONS of holidays on May 1. Last year covered five holidays, and none of them are duplicated this year. And there are STILL more to choose from.
This year brings a new May 1 holiday, National Purebred Dog Day; I know people with mutts, and I know people with purebreds, and they’re all great dogs. (My friend Amber’s two white bulldogs are especially precious and drooly and grumbly.) Though whenever I think of purebred dogs, my brain goes straight to poodles, with the fancy show haircut. So there you go. Today is also Chocolate Parfait Day, honoring another food I’ve never tried; I’m just not much of a fan of pudding consistency, and this seems like it’s double puddingish. Plus, whipped cream on top. Eurgh.
(Still, if you’re going to eat one, pinkies out. Everyone should feel fancy now and then.)
