Timely Craving: Very Serious Food Holidays and News

Today–Friday, September 29th–is National Coffee Day, and it’s a biggie if you are craving the beans. It’s such a biggie that I’ve simply listed my sources and who is doing deals below that.

  • 10/1 National Pumpkin Spice Day, which it’s been that every day for me since late August.
  • 10/3: National Soft Taco Day
  • 10/4: National Taco Day . . . interesting the juxtaposition there. And by interesting I’m like why?

Not a Craving: The Traveling Stormtroopers

These idiots* belong to my chiropractor and friend. They visit different parts of his workspace. This particular setup made me laugh. There’s a story here. I’m guessing the one with the blaster shot the one in front in the head accidentally, and the one on the right is reacting. Meanwhile, the blaster stormstrooper is like, “Shhhh, he’ll know!”

*Don’t at me. Stormtroopers are notorious for being idiots.
