Is this week moving at a snail's pace? No surprise: It's Turtle Day today, Escargot Day tomorrow
Today is World Turtle Day. Oh, sure, the pretext here is that we should care for turtles and tortoises and support those who protect their fragile habitats -- and there's nothing wrong with that.
But tomorrow is Escargot Day. Some people might argue that Escargot Day is really meant to encourage folks to eat snails, not because the week before a holiday always seems to take f...o...r...e...v...e...r.
But, consider: Turtle Day... Escargot Day... on consecutive days in the week before Memorial Day? Coincidence? I think not. Will that three day weekend never arrive?
