I Am Who My Inbox Says I Am?

Woke up this morning to find an email with the subject line, “Michelle Obama shows her warmer side”. I opened it only to find that the first lady herself, thinks I’m under-endowed and would like to offer her help.
After combing through more emails, apparently, she’s not the only one who feels this way. Some other kind people have taken the time to tell me I should gamble away my life savings online, get hooked on prescription drugs, that CNN & TBS have the perfect home-based job for me and what seems like every employee at UPS (every email I receive has a different senders name), wants to notify me about a package I’m supposed to receive in a matter of days. I’m still waiting!

After an average of 40 emails of this nature, every morning,
I realized something.

Oh, Say Did You See…..

…..Christina Aguilera sing the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl on Sunday? What a voice, only to be overshadowed by flubbing the lyrics to our nation’s most important song, in front of 111 million viewers. I feel for her! I know what it’s like to mess up lyrics, having done so on occasion, to my very own songs! You can get distracted sometimes thinking about things like, “Am I having a good hair day?” “I miss the way my grandma used to pinch my cheeks.” or “Is that person sitting at table 4 gonna eat that last chicken wing?”

I had the pleasure, a few years back, of singing the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium for their Independence Day Fireworks Celebration. Even though two-thirds of the crowd was either caught in traffic or tailgating in the parking lot, it was a thrilling moment that I’m very proud of, nonetheless!
Although, as I belted out the last line, a few fighter planes did a thunderous fly by, and consequently drowned me and the glorious applause, OUT!
As I remained on the field gazing around the stadium, awaiting the applause I hadn’t realized I had missed, security came and escorted me off. While that was a bit embarrassing, at least this time, I didn’t flub the lyrics.

The shortest month of the year. Only a few Charlie Sheen rehab updates away from being over already. Surprisingly enough though, in such a short time, Feb manages to cram in quite a few interesting observances other than the almighty Valentine’s Day.

For real, February is National Care About Your Indoor Air Month, Pull Your Sofa Off The Wall Month, Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month, Spunky Old Broads Month, International Hoof Care Month and National Condom Month ( I’m assuming that makes Nov. – Low Birth Rate Month).

Weekly observances include: Dump Your Significant Jerk Week, Just Say No To Powerpoint Week, International Flirting Week ( during National Condom Month?! Coincidence?), National Secondhand Wardrobe Week, Build A Better Trade Show Image Week and Texas Cowboy Poetry Week.

Oh, and by the way, TODAY is G.I. Joe Day, Robinson Crusoe Day & Working Naked Day.

February is also Come Out To A Christopher Dale Show Month.
That’s my favorite!
