We can not tell a lie: Friday is Washington's Birthday

Presumably -- hopefully -- you already knew that Friday, February 22 is George Washington's Birthday.

You might choose to celebrate the Father of Our Country tomorrow evening with a margarita. No, the connection is not obvious to us either, but tomorrow is also, for some reason, National Margarita Day.

Several of the Usual Suspects also note that Friday is World Thinking Day, a Girl Scout observance which asks girls to take "time to give thanks for their international friendships and remember that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community." Usual Suspect was kind enough to supply a link to the Girl Scout website, from which this quote and graphic were taken.

Usual Suspect is the only one to suggest Inconcenience Yourself Day as an alternative for Friday. We don't know why being inconvenienced would be an occasion for celebration, nor do we understand why one would voluntarily make one's self inconvenienced -- but we here at The Blog of Days like to try and provide a variety of excuses whenever possible. But, seriously: Why would anyone want to be inconvenienced? Doesn't it happen often enough without courting such an occasion?
