May 8, 2014: I don’t need it to be National Coconut Cream Pie Day for me to want coconut cream pie; I’ll eat that any day. Or even better, the coconut chess pie they serve at Texas de Brazil, our favorite Brazilian steakhouse. Mmmmm, coocnutty. Today is also Have a Coke Day; while Coca-Cola was first created in March of 1886, it wasn’t first sold until May 8 of that same year. Again, I hope it took that long to perfect the recipe, not for it to ferment or anything.
Last but not least, it’s No Socks Day today. Just, please, not when paired with loafers and ankle-revealing skinny pants, dudes. That doesn’t look good on anybody.
