The usually charming and eloquent Dr. Spo has tarnished his good name and blasphemed the very special month of May, so I am obliged to set the record straight: May is Magical!
May 1st is International Workers’ Day, which marks the anniversary of the beginning of the end of the 12 hour work day and reminds us the power of the working class to have a voice in their own professional treatment and work/life balance. (Now if only we could have another revolution reducing the work day another 33% to 5.5 hours!)
May 1st is also Mayday, marked by dancing around a pole, crowing a queen of May (of which I hold the lifetime title) and gifting baskets of flowers. Poles, Queens,and Baskets. Should we just name rename the month “Gay”?
May 1st is also International Jockstrap Day! Need I say more?
May 1st-7th is Be Kind to Animals Week and National Pet Week. (As every week should be.)
May 6th is National No Pants Day!
May 7th is Free Comic Book Day!
May 21st is World Whiskey Day! (Not so dull now, is it Spo?)
May to me also marks the beginning of summer, when we finally pull out of the rainy, damp, cold remains of winter and our yards are filled with birds and bees and flowers and trees.
And, of course the most important day of May is May 17th, which marks the start of another year closer to retirement for me!
So, sorry Spo. You got this one wrong!
