For the Love of Mike Day (Reprise -2007)

Today is offical For the Love of Mike Day. I’ve written about this before (click here or here to see), but I’m not anymore educated on the history or meaning of the day now than I was back then. However, that in no way should be regarded as an indication of my lack of respect for this deeply meaningful holiday.

That’s right. I called it a holiday.

My name is Mike. And for the love all things me, well, love me. Shower me with adoration. Tell me how great I am. Embarass me with false compliments propagating my bass playing skills. Regale me with stories about how I’ve positively influenced your life. Explain to me why you believe I might be the greatest, wittiest, and least-ugly non-good looking guy in the blogosphere.

Or you could just donate money to me. I’m fine either way.

And can someone please tell me why this day actually exists? And shouldn’t I get like a free taco or something today? Seems to me like this would be a good excuse for an Arby’s or a Tastee Freeze to have a For the Love Of Mike Day promotion. All Mike’s get a free sandwich at their local In-N-Out Burger.

Actually, and much more importantly, why are there no In-N-Out Burgers here in the midwest? I mean, for the love of Mike, they make a very good hamburger and we need at least one franchise here in Chicago.

Anyway, my name is Mike, and today is my day.
