Did you know that January 21st is official "Squirrel Appreciation Day?" Well, it is. And you should do something about it. Last year my mom special-ordered a tie with a squirrel on it for me, to represent. I wore it proudly and received many nice compliments. This year, however, the calendar is cruel and has placed Squirrel Appreciation Day on a SATURDAY, when I will not be at work and not have a good reason to wear a tie.
One of the students I work with suggested I wear it on Monday instead, so I guess I'll do that. But it won't be the SAME.
I love seeing the perplexed yet delighted reactions of the students when they see the Squirrel Day board.
