Brownielocks.com proclaims today as Father-in-Law Day and Paperback Book Day.
We here at The Blog of Days will be waiting, probably in vain, for our sons-in-law to shower us with gifts today. A paperback book might be nice -- thieves aren't likely to grab a paperback from your mitts as you sit on the subway. For all their many advantages, Kindles and Nooks can attract unwanted attention from crooks, especially if the holder of said device is too much absorbed in the book on display to note the peril.
Hallmark agrees that today is Father-in-Law Day, but it also suggests National Cheesecake Day as an alternative. Cheesecake makes a nice gift, too. In Chicago, Eli's Cheesecake is perhaps the place to go for that.
We here at The Blog of Days could go for that right now.
