Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : Walk Around Things Day..........

Walk Around Things Day..........

Walk Around Things Day..........

This day April 4th will always be Walk Around Things Day.

Brick Falling on your headWalk Around Things Day is a day to avoid problems and risks, by simply walking around the potential problem. Gee they should have called it AVOID Things Day if that’s the case.  But, you wouldn't walk under a ladder, would you?  Then, it is also wise to walk around objects, especially those that pose risk or danger.

"Walk around things" can also be used figuratively.  It is also wise to walk around, or avoid, topics issues, and problems that are sticky, may provoke an argument, or are not readily solved.  I guess, I prefer stirring up the pot in this instance.

If ever was a day to "Walk Around Things", today is that day.  OK……

Hey I could’ve written a post about another day today is; would you believe it is also “Tell A Lie Day?”  Hmmmm…..  Or would you rather celebrate “Hug A Newsman Day?”

Don - That's what I tell Laraine almost every day after she let's me outside.  :-)

There has been so much disagreement here on active rain this past week that I think many could use this day to avoid further argument.  Have a wonderful day Dear Don!

Don...I think I will tell my wife it is "Hug Your Realtor Day."  I know that won't get me far, but it is worth a try!  lol

Ralph,

You are so kind to Ms. Laraine.

I must have missed all of it.

William,

All I can say is good luck.  Just don't tell her that it is also Tell A Lie Day.

Hi Don - I missed the disagreement stuff.  Glad I "walked" around it.

Don, I like the "Hug a Newsman Day" after reading this definition from the Free Online Dictionary: "newsman. n. A man who gathers, reports, or edits news."  I think that is what everyone here on ActiveRain is doing by blogging.  Have a great day and I hope you get lots of hugs.

Hey Conrad,

What's all this stuff about disagreement?  I must've been asleep during it all.

 

Good evening Gary,

Thank you for the definition of a newsman.  You are right sir about all of the contributors here in the rain being newsmen & women.
