Welcome to another week of party central! Let’s get things rolling with Toss Away the Could Have’s and Should Have’s Day, which lands on July 19. I suspect we all have our lists of things we should’ve or could’ve done, but for whatever reasons, we didn’t do ‘em. So today is your day to forgive, forget and move on.

National Get out of the Doghouse Day is this day as well. I hope none of you find yourself in the position of needing to get out of the doghouse, but if you’ve done something that met with disapproval, today’s the day to play the appropriate “get out of jail free” card and leave the doghouse to the true canines among us.

Spooner’s – or SpoonerismsDay is on deck for July 22. You probably utter spoonerisms from time to time, although you may not know that’s what it’s called. The term comes from Reverend William Archibald Spooner, who staused quite a cur with all his wixed up mords.  It’s a slip of the tongue that skews a couple of words like this:

  • hog douse
  • dack boor
  • rinner dolls
  • perry chie

Here are some father ramous spooners from Squidoo:

One of the oldest and best known Spoonerisms in radio was uttered by announcer Harry Von Zell in the early 1930s: “Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States, Hoobert Heever.”

Another announcer once solemnly intoned, “All the world was thrilled by the marriage of the Duck and Doochess of Windsor.”

As Queen Elizabeth II sailed into Sydney Harbour aboard the royal yacht Brittania, an excited announcer said, “…and there goes the 21-sun galute.”

It was once announced that word of an impending presidential veto came from “a high White Horse souse.”

I’m sure you can see that celebrating this day could be a fot of lun!

Hot Enough For Ya Day is July 23, and judging by the extended forecast, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say, “Why yes, it is. Thanks for asking.”

We’ll wrap up the week with National Drive-thru Day on the 24th From fast food to prescriptions to a bottle of wine, you can find just about anything at a drive-thru. I say let’s “drive-thru” and get milk shakes!

Until next week, get your party on!
