March Madness?

February is over.

Sooo…  I have put together the official March observances to keep us (myself and you, dear readers), in-the-know. March is another observance-full month – even with the religious holidays omitted. It’s not that I’m being politically correct here. I figure the religious among us already know when they are, and the non-religious don’t want to be reminded they may be going to Hell.

  1. What are we supposed to do on World Kidney Day? Are we supposed to donate them? Or eat them, like the Brits do in pie? I’m not really into organ meats, so is it ok if I just eat kidney *beans* that day? I also have the same question about National Eye Day . .

    You know, I work, and have a family (that I mostly ignore), so I’m probably too busy to celebrate all of these days. So I think I’m just going to pick the fun ones, like National Colorectal Month. I don’t know if I can commit to celebrating it the whole month, but I’ll be sure to add extra fiber to occasional meals in honor of it.

    1. Eat them? Yuck!
      I plan to drink extra water on Kidney day and flush them out, making them happy. I have my donor card filled out, next to my driver’s license in my wallet, so that takes care of Eye Donor month – not that anyone would want any body parts from my disease ridden self.
      Have a fabulous month!
