Well, of course today is Derby Day--the running of the 134th Kentucky Derby. There will be bourbon, and hats. And lots of flowers, which brings me to my next big event.
I have to leave for work in a few minutes, so I won't be able to watch the most exciting two minutes in sports at home. But I do have time to let you know about another event:
World Naked Gardening Day
From the website:
"Why garden naked? First of all, it's fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment."I beg to differ. I think that mostly what our culture needs, the vast majority of us anyway, is to move toward keeping your damn clothes on, and trying to preserve what shreds of dignity we have left. I've always thought that nudity is best suited for two human activities: f*cking and combat. But that's just me. I've included a photo from some WNGD promotional material:
I am glad that there's not a world naked driving day.
Enjoy your weekend.
