July 27th Take Your Pants For a Walk Day

I assume that today refers to you taking a walk yourself though with all the bizarre and strange days there are, maybe it does mean to take your pants for a walk. Perhaps it’s a new method of drying your pants instead of placing them in a dryer, but maybe not. It is summer and a little warm to wear your pants if you are talking a walk but if it’s not raining then it’s a perfectly good way of drying them. Or perhaps, like me, you will just go about your day and not pay any attention to it being “Take Your Pants For A Walk Day”.

How to celebrate – Take your pants for a walk. Put your pants on a leash and drag them behind you. Forget you heard about this day and live your life normally.

July 7th Father Daughter Take A Walk Day

A father and son can play sports together, games together, and enjoy some of the same hobbies. Fathers and daughters share something completely different. That does not mean they cannot share the same sports, games, and hobbies because they obviously can, but fathers are more protective of their little girls and it teaches the girls how to wrap a man around their fingers.

Now that sounds bad but it isn’t because generally speaking, the man wants to be all wrapped up! Have you ever noticed how boys will get mad at each other, have a fight, and ten minutes later be playing with each other again? Where girls have a fight that might last for weeks, if not years. But then boys get mad quickly and girls take longer.

Now it comes as no surprise that women like to talk more than most men. There is a lot that can be learned from what they are saying, little secrets escape during the most elementary conversations. If you listen closely enough you can hear them describe where they have been, where they are, and where they intend to go. Walking seems to free this thought process up even more. Maybe it’s the effort it takes, or something that loosens up the tongue, but things get said that might not otherwise be said.

If you start these father/daughter walks young they will continue.

 

Even when they are no longer little. And if you are lucky enough they will last until that final official walk where you give your daughter away.

And daughters, remember that dad spent all your lifetime trying to protect you and make you happy. That will never stop, even when he needs you to protect him.

Fathers have a lot to teach their daughters to help make them better women. Daughters have a lot to teach fathers to be better men. And it seems that the lessons are better learned, better retained, and mean so much more when you are moving forward, which is exactly what you do on a walk.

How to celebrate: Take your daughter for a walk no matter how old she is (however, if you do not have a daughter I do not suggest taking someone elses daughter for a walk without permission, it won’t end well). Listen to what she has to say on the walk. Daughters take your fathers for a walk, they deserve your undivided attention even if it’s just for  few minutes.
