Guess what, everyone? Today is Earth Day! Yawn. Shrug. *eye roll*
Okay, okay. We get it. Every day is dedicated to something. National Rubber Eraser Day. National Waffle Day. There’s even a National Hug a Plumber Day — which is actually kinda legit because plumbers probably deserve an extra hug or two.
