It has just come to my attention that February 22 is official For The Love of Mike Day.
I’m not making this up.

But back to For The Love of Mike Day. I have no doubt that most of you are asking yourselves the same question I am right now.
“Mikey, how is that I never knew about this holiday, and how can I make up to you all the days I’ve missed giving you the recognition you deserve?”
Well, frankly, I’m not sure you can ever truly make it up to me. There’s 31 years worth of day long love that the world owes me. I’ll try to put together a schedule. It’ll be tough to squeeze everyone in, but check outside my cube in a couple days and I’ll post the whole schedule. If you’d like to switch timeslots with someone, just let me know and I’ll make something happen.
Even though I know that most of you are relieved to learn about my day, there might be a few of you out there who are questioning why it might be that I have my own day. Some of you might be saying to me right now, “Mikey, my name is Chad and I have dimples, why isn’t there a dimpled Chad day?”
Well, dimpled Chad, there is, in fact, a day dedicated to you. It just so happens that it falls on January 4. Of course, the day is supposed to be dedicated to chads left over from election day ballots, but I’m sure an exception can be made to include you as well.
Here are some more of my favorite days:
January 23 – Snow Plow Mailbox Hockey Day
February 20 – Northern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day
March 3 – What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day
July 15 – Be A Dork Day
August 8 – Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbors Porch Day
Novemeber 8 – Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day
One day they’ll give us the day off for Groundhog Day. I can feel it.
