Father’s Day 2016

Any day that ends in Day is kind of a chore. Mother’s Day. Valentine’s Day. Garbage Day. But today was Father’s Day.  It’s odd having a day like that.  I like personal perks and celebrating my dad, too… but it is kind of a chore still.  I think I’d like “Nothing’s Day” or “Free Day” — a day you celebrate nothing, have nothing to do and there are no cards or gifts to buy.  It would be on a Monday and everyone would have it off.  What if that day was this Monday?
