Just Today, Don't Be an Asshole

"I know it's wrong to skip class, but Janis said we were friends. And I was in no position to pass up friends."

It's National Don't-Be-A-Dick-To-Your-Fellow-Man/Woman Day. While you're out enjoying the stunning, reminiscent weather, let that lady with the minivan full of kids merge in front of you, even if she has a bumper sticker that makes it clear she's voting for the other guy. Pay for that college kid's coffee so he can get through class without falling asleep and afford lunch today, too. Shut off the tv after dinner and toss a frisbee with your dog and kids. And if you see a cop, firefighter, soldier, or any other serviceman or woman out today—give them a holler. Hell, buy their coffee, too.

Just don't be a dick. This one day, be okay with people being rude or lines being long because it's actually fine and your life is still beautiful.

That's all I got. After eleven years, I have no poignancy left. Have a breathtaking day. :)
