Friday Fun Fact

Today’s Friday Fun Fact is an odd one, odder than normal. I discovered today, November 21, is the 36 annual World Hello Day. World Hello Day was begun in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the fall of 1973. Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.

To participate in World Hello Day all you need to do is say hello to ten people. Sounds simiply enough to me. You know, I kind of like this idea of a World Hello Day. If anything it makes us speak to each other instead of txt messaging everything. Also, do you remember that day Starbucks told me if I just said hello I might get a date? See this could be a way for me, or you, to get a date. I think I will participate this year. Therefore, in honor of World Hello Day I would like to say- Hello Blogger World.

I don't need a date, but I'm sure I can manage to say Hello to some people... do kids count? Cuz if I say Hello to the kids at the Girl Scout meeting then I am sure to go over 10. ;)

This reminds me of the Seinfeld where the bank guarantees $100 if you're not greeted with a hello. Kramer goes in and the teller says "hey." So Kramer wants his hundred dollars.

"We've discussed this and here's the feeling. You got a greeting that stars with an H. How's twenty bucks sound?"

"I'll take it!"
