Apparently, I missed the missive on January 25th announcing ‘Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day’. I am devastated as I had bought a 3-meter roll in preparation. Fully prepared and intent on popping those bad boys for the entire day. And just to be extra rock’n roll having a bowl of rice krispies to make everything go ‘Snap, Crackle and Pop’.
I had also planned to listen to pop music whilst wearing my pop socks. Ok, I am getting a little bit carried away here but seriously? Who thinks of this stuff? Excuse me whilst I pop over to the wall to bang my head against it.
There is a gazillion, metra tetra quintetra (OK I may have made the last one up) other possible choices for National days besides popping bubble wrap. What about tin foil? How could we leave that beautiful aluminum roll without a mention? Where would we be without it? Roasts and baking left uncovered? Cooks and bakers left bereft?
I started to think about our national vegetable the humble potato and why it does not have its own national day. And upon further research it does- August 19th. You are welcome. I know now that your day is complete upon being able to plan a buttery potatoes feast on August 19th. Spuds away.
That’s all for now
