May 27, 2014: It’s the day after Memorial Day, which means you can start wearing white trousers and shoes, and also that you can start really using the summertime items in a gung-ho fashion. So let’s have a nice icy treat for National Grape Popsicle Day! Personally, I’d rank cherry, root beer, and banana as my top Popsicle flavors, with grape falling in the middle category of flavors I’ll eat if they’re there (lemon/lime is right there with grape). As for orange Popsicles — if anyone else wants them, take them. Gross.
Today is also Sunscreen Day, and it’s always fascinating how crazy people can get about it — from the “wear it 100% of the time or you’ll die” folks to the “don’t smear that poison on your skin or you’ll die” folks. Me, I find the best sunscreen is to stay indoors. Because I really don’t like the slimy feel on my skin.
