January 10: Bittersweet chocolate, peculiar people and houseplants

Thursday will be Bittersweet Chocolate Day, Peculiar People Day, and Houseplant Appreciation Day.

Houseplant Appreciation Day is presumably a different microminiholidayette than Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day, which was celebrated July 27 (You may recall that there was some controversy about whether one was expected to take one's plants or one's pants for a walk that day. We guessed that one should presumably walk with one's pants as a matter of course, except perhaps in nudist colonies or parts of San Francisco.) But, anyway, you don't have to carry your plants anywhere today, you need merely appreciate them. And give them a little water, too. Aren't they looking droopy?
