It's National Yellow Pig Day!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

Well, who knew it was National Yellow Pig Day? 

Not me.  Well, not until I went to the National Day Calendar.  (I don't even know what it means or is about. Do you?)

There's a National Day of something EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. OF. THE. YEAR.  Most of the time, it's really kind of fun. These days are the perfect excuses for being bad.  For instance, Sunday is National Ice Cream Day.  To celebrate, I made a graphic for my Lotus Bay characters.

Mmm...ice cream.  Now I have an excuse to EAT ice cream on Sunday.  And if I'm going to be bad, should I have a mere ice cream sandwich (I've got a box in the freezer), or should I buy a pint or half gallon (although I think they've shrunk that size)? Maybe I should go to an ice cream parlor, and instead of a cone go for a sundae -- or worse, a banana split!

See, these National Days give you a real excuse to be bad. Very bad.

On Tuesday, it'll be National Junk Food Day.  Mmmm...junk food.  I know what I'm going to have.  How about you?
