View Full Version : June 18 - Picnic, Panic, whatev
06-18-2010, 05:47 AM
Today is International Picnic Day. Let the man of the house have a break from lawnmowing and honey dos, because it is Work At Home Dads Day. While you're enjoying your time out in nature, maybe you can get a little fishing in, because it's National Go Fishing Day. If you're all out of hooks and sinkers, maybe you can bring a deck of cards and play Go Fish instead. There's no planned menu for the picnic, so you can have whatever you'd like. Maybe caviar, filet mignon, and truffles, because it is Splurge Day. For dessert, you'll be enjoying Cherry Tart, because it is the day for it. Unfortunately, your picnic may be interrupted by bears, werewolves, and/or vampires, because it is International Panic Day. Don't Panic. Remember what you've learned in the movies. Unless they have red eyes, they're peaceful, and just want to be friends and possibly steal your cherry pie. If they have red eyes, then you can panic.

Wanna know what's sad? People fall for that crud. And by people I mean my husband!! Yup, got us scammed out of $3,000 once and then nearly did again on some Nigerian scam a few years back but I got to the mail first and found this odd check in there for a large sum of money. What a dumby.

Try posting any ad on Craigslist. Within the hour, you will get at least half a dozen emails from African royalty, deposed MidEastern sheiks, and/or European aristocracy who need your help getting an outrageous amount of money out of their country. Makes you feel really special, you know, that they would pick you out of the bazillions of people in the world.
