It’s the fifth Hump Day of June, and you know what that means…!
Oh, maybe that’s because I’m just getting started here.
Today I kick off my new website and blog; and what better day to do that than on a Bonus Hump Day? You see, when I set about planning my life, my time, my energy, I think in terms of four-week months, don’t you? The fifth week of a month, however, is near and dear to my heart — and not just because it sometimes results in an extra paycheck, although those sure are nice — but because they are sort of uncommon.
I love uncommon. And I love Hump Day. And what’s better than four Hump Days a month? Five!
Extra days and weeks are special! They make me giddy as if I’ve cheated death, stolen additional time out from under The Ole’ Reaper’s nose. Remember what it felt like as a kid to sneak an extra cookie? Yeah, like that. Like I’ve found a twenty-dollar bill. Squeeee!
Speaking of sweets, I’m celebrating this first-of-the-blog-Bonus-Hump-Day by baking a cake. But let me tell you what I won’t be doing. I won’t be adding those Fourth of July sparklers to the top, even though that particular holiday is nearly upon us.
Let me tell you why.
When I was kid, for my birthday, my mom always made me the tastiest, mouth-wateringist, buttercream frostingest, tooth decay inducingest, cake. But then, it never failed; out would come the sparklers.
Aside from making the whole cake taste like sulfur (which I’m sure couldn’t have been good for my health), I had to scrape off nearly all of the frosting to get down to a layer that didn’t contain crunchy bits of rock-like sparkler leavings. Nowadays, everyone knows to just forget the cake and gimme the frosting.
But, I digress…m-m-m, frosting talk…Bonus Hump Day, yes, that’s where I was.
I would like to commemorate this first day of blogging by declaring every Bonus Hump Day a celebration and this site will be the venue. Please join me!
May the Scribbleglitch blog have a long and happy life. Cheers!
