"Ode To A Small Lump Of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning"

May 25, 2010

I have absolutely no doubt that you all clearly remember me mentioning that I had towel day entered as an event on my google calendar, and couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was?

Silly me, I just had the date wrong. Because Towel Day is today! And since Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of my all time favorite books, and since I didn't think I could love Douglas Adams anymore until I found out he used to write for Doctor Who, I will faithfully carry a towel around my house with me all day. (The fact that I inadvertently chose today to potty train Harrison is just a stroke of serendipity. This towel is going to come in handy. Apparently the stars have aligned and the potty gods are smiling down on me.)

Many people celebrate Towel Day by reciting Vogon Poetry (see Title), but I have chosen to celebrate by hanging out in a track suit and stuffing my pockets full of leaves. It's not like money grows on trees you know.

Happy Towel Day everyone! May you always know where your towel is!
