May 16, 2014: Happy National Sea Monkey Day! I have no idea if sea monkeys are still being sold (or if they’re being sold through the back pages of comic books), but I remember them fondly from my childhood. But oh boy, what a disappointment it was when they arrived and ended up being tiny little brine shrimp.
Today is also National Bike to Work Day, which is the centerpiece of National Bike Month. I actually wouldn’t mind bicycling to work if it was possible (and if I had a bike with a big, wide cruiser seat), but unfortunately, Orlando isn’t a very bike-friendly city. I’m fearful enough of the tourists on the road when I’m inside a car; I can’t imagine how much they’d menace a cyclist.
