This is from Anne:
I can’t remember if I read this somewhere or if I made it up myself:
Every day of the year is National Something-Or-Other Day. Most days it’s 3 or 4 things. On nationaldaycalendar.com you can find a list; you can also get put on a mailing list and receive a daily email.
In my upper level classes, after we do the calendar and small talk about school, games, etc., we talk about the national day. Today it was tacos, vodka, and golf. We talked a lot about tacos – what goes into them, where you can get them around here, etc. Golf and vodka didn’t provide us with as much material. But yesterday we got a lot of mileage out of Walk to School, Boyfriend, Coffee with a Cop, and Pumpkin Seeds.
