May I Never...

So... May it is. We are over a year in to the US Presidential campaign, and maybe it will be the month that we finally know who is up against the Republican candidate. April showers bring May candidates? I love the insanity of US politics, but I think this is a battle that is wearing a little thin. So on National Day of Prayer, let us pray that it will be over soon. (Only 6 more months to go folks.)

So what about May 1st? How about this for a list:
World Asthma Day, Executive Coaching Day, Frequent Flyer Day, Law Day, Lei Day, Library Legislative Day, Loyalty Day, Martin Z. Mollusk Day, May Day, Mother Goose Day, National Day of Prayer, National Day of Reason, New Homeowner's Day, School Principals' Day Save the Rhino Day, Worthy Wage Day, and Stepmother's Day?

What I reason is this: In order to make full use of the day, one should use their frequent flyer loyalty points, head for Hawaii, and get Lei'd. Of course to make that happen, we'd have to pray for worthy wages.

Of all the months, May is recognized as the month for (on last count) 63 different causes, ideas, issues, and celebrations. Maybe May is going to be an entertaining month - it's Hamburger Month, BBQ Month, Salad Month, Salsa Month, Sweet Vidalia Onion Month, Vinegar Month and Egg Month. This might be one month that was indeed collaborated on... 'cause that sounds like a great meal. Don't enjoy it too much, it's also Go Fetch - Food Drive for Homeless Animals Month. And to keep the burgers from your hips, it is Physical Fitness and Bike Month.

Of course it's also a month of disorders, disorderly, and crises that I'm sure a few weeks out of the year isn't going to fix. The list is below (no order).
