Yesterday, with your help, the Fit Bottomed Girls celebrated More Herbs, Less Salt Day. And, although I spent half of my Friday afternoon watching Salt-N-Pepa music videos from the early 90s, I have to admit that it was a pretty ridiculous holiday (especially since there’s a real holiday on Monday). I mean, really, who comes up with this stuff? And then it dawned on me, anyone can. It may not be “official” to the rest of the world, but I think the collective Fit Bottomed Girls/Boys around the world (and there are a lot of fine, fine fit bottomed girls/boys out there!) can come up with a better holiday than Fight Procrastination Day (Sept. 6, don’t put it off, by the way).
So, tell us, what “holiday” would you like to celebrate? I, for one, could go for a Push It Day. As in we all dress up in old clothes from the early 90s and break out in spontaneous choreographed dance whenever Salt-N-Pepa’s song “Push It” comes on the radio (which would happen often because it’s Push It Day).
Whoever comments or e-mails us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the funniest faux holiday ideas will receive something a little special for their efforts. You have until Tuesday at 10 p.m. Eastern to comment, and everyone from across the globe is eligible, so get ’em in! Three winners will be announced next week after a very democratic process involving me, Erin, a long-distance phone call and a bottle of wine. —Jenn
