NATIONAL IRISH COFFEE DAY – this is a day I can appreciate, especially in the middle of a Canadian winter. It is reported that Irish Coffee made its way to North America in the 1950s by way of Shannon Airport in Ireland. Here is the recipe:
Take a warm glass or mug, add 2/3 full of coffee, stir in a heaping teaspoon of sugar and add an ounce of Irish Whiskey. Now comes the best part: add cream (preferably non whipped whipping cream) by pouring over the top of a spoon so that it settles on top. Yum!
NATIONAL OPPOSITE DAY – you know that annoying game that kids play when they proclaim that everything you say is actually the opposite? For example:
You: Its time for bed, kids.
Them: Yay, its Opposite Day so we get to stay up all night!
You: No, I am serious. Its time for bed.
Them: Yay! She’s kidding! We get to stay up all night!
Well, now you get to play that game … with everyone you meet. This could get you into serious trouble. I’d like reports, please, on how it all worked out.
