Today is another of those odd days that Wellcat.com decided to copyright, it’s “Race Your Mouse Day”. In their hurry to claim today they forgot to tell us which mouse they were referring to, or maybe they meant to race anything we know of as a mouse, perhaps against each other. Anyway, go ahead and race which ever, or both, mouses you have but remember that is there is any money involved you will owe Wellcat something. Oh, also make sure it is legal in your state.
How to celebrate – On your mark! Get set! GO!!!
Okay, so I am sort of getting use to useless days, but I guess they can be fun… or at least sort of if you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do to celebrate them. Or even why they exist at all. Most seem to come from a company called Wellcat.com, which makes a profit on these days but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how.
I am not downing them, they must be doing well, at least for cats, but what the heck is race your mouse day? I mean, is it a computer thing, do you keep pet mice, do you torture a mouse by letting your cat chase it? No one seems to know… and frankly, I don’t think anyone really cares.
If it is a computer thing, you can’t win so what’s the point of playing? And if it’s an animal thing it isn’t going to end up pretty however it ends. So just what do you do to celebrate something either impossible or gross?
So I’ve been thinking about it. What can one do to race a mouse? And why would one even want to race a mouse? Does the mouse know if it wins? Does the mouse care? I think, however, I may have come up with an answer….
Race Mickey Mouse at Disney! I know he isn’t yours and I know that it will cost you several hundred dollars just to get in and see Mickey. (Maybe Wellcat gets a percentage of that!) Either way, if you aren’t thrown out of the park afterwards you can at least spend the day enjoying the rides and sights.
How to celebrate – You tell me!?! Go to Disney. Get a life.
