Havva good one
If I search my furniture and underneath the seats of my truck, maybe I'll find enough change to enjoy Caramel Day.

I love the soft kind of caramel that oozes out of a piece of chocolate candy, but I do not like the hard caramel that can pull your fillings out.

Caramel is also great in coffee and atop ice cream.

I haven't had one of those candies in a long time.

I'll have to think about my epitaph, and make sure I get it right.

It's also:

I was thinking, maybe I should add a plea for mercy:

Today's celebrations:

Caramel Popcorn Day
National Beer Day
No Housework Day
World Health Day

I think you could celebrate a combination of some of these things, but I'm not sure where the health part would come in.

Although I like caramel popcorn, I was not able to enjoy it today. However, I am proud to say that I did no housework today and am enjoying the honored beverage as I type this. No comment on world health day at this time (I spent most of the day in a hospital). Thank you.

I unfortunately did have to do some housework today, so that was the only holiday that I "celebrated". Not really my idea of a celebration.

Sorry that you spent the day in a hospital. Hope everything is okay.
