Saturday is National Bagpipes Day, Scotch Day... and Take Your Pants for a Walk Day?
Well, we appreciate bagpipes. We even like bagpipes -- at least in moderation.
Someone once said that the only thing better than 30 minutes of rousing bagpipe music was 15 minutes of rousing bagpipe music.
That seems about right.
And, speaking of moderation, Usual Suspect Punchbowl.com includes Scotch Day among its lists of observances for Saturday -- but it doesn't give that top billing.
Actually, a little scotch (or, if you prefer, a little Irish whiskey) makes bagpipe music sound all that much better.
Too much whiskey, though, and you may find yourself celebrating Take Your Pants for a Walk Day. This sounds like a microminihoidayette invented by Anthony Weiner. If you must take your pants for a walk Saturday, stay in them. Please. Unless, we suppose, you're wearing a kilt?
