International Bacon Day 2013

A day all to myself – International Bacon Day 2013!

I’ve had several friends remind that today is my day – Bacon day.  Heck, I’m honored to have a day all to myself.  How many people are actually named Bacon, right?

I was talking to my friend Fozzie’s mum 🙂 over at yesterday.  She was telling me about today being International Bacon Day and how I should be the – are you ready for this – the HAMbassador of the day – snorts.  And it gets better 🙂  Sammy at should be the court jester.  Double snorts.

I thought to myself, “Self, why not?”  I’m sure that today is not in any form or fashion meant to be what “WE” want it to be but why not?  Other people can celebrate their way of International Bacon Day and we can celebrate OUR way of International Bacon Day.  Right friends?

So, as HAMbassador of this day, I proclaim it my day – International Bacon Day!  This is me getting my “hams” massaged by mommy.  Noticed the smile on my face.  I’m as happy as a pig in mud.  No, wait a minute.  What does that saying mean?  “As happy as a pig in mud”.  Isn’t that dirty and messy AND outside?  Why would I be happy dirty and messy and outside?  That doesn’t make sense.  Let me rephrase that.  I’m as happy as a spoiled rotten miniature pot bellied pig that stays inside and has his own room and his own television and his own bed.  There – that’s more exact, you think?  Snorts.

On this day, I proclaim it’s me day.  I shall do nothing.  I shall be cuddled.  I shall be loved.  I shall be waited on hand and feet (literally).  I shall be fed grapes off of a stem.  I shall have control of the remote control.  I shall do no wrong.

uum… wait a minute.  I get all of that every day, not just today on my special day.  Let me rethink real quick.  Okay I got it.

I proclaim today International Bacon Day.  A day of no wrong.  Sammy – come here my court jester.  Let’s celebrate this special day with all of our special friends here!  All hail Bacon Day!
