A day for lefties, beef and wine
As you wander through a local grocery or convenience store today (Wednesday), take note of how people grab their fresh edition of the Citizen off the stack.
Do they grab it with their left hand, or right hand? It matters.
If they use their left hand, there's a fair chance they are left-handed. And, if that's the case, you may want to wish them, "Happy Left-Handers Day."
Of course, today is also National Filet Mignon Day and National Prosecco Day. As I've written before, there's a day for nearly anything - but no one thinks to add what undoubtedly would become the most worthwhile day of the year, National Editor's Day.
I'll save that discussion for another time. Getting back to the day at hand, I see Left-Hander's Day as a nod to a group that is often overlooked and faces discrimination. (How often do you see a left-handed shortstop.)
Filet Mignon Day serves as a great excuse to eat a prize cut of beef. Local beef producers would agree it should be a national holiday.
That leaves us with, National Prosecco Day. What is it? Apparently it, "represents a time to raise a toast to the remaining days of the season. As we bask in the warmth of the resounding rays of summer, the day encourages people across the U.S. to embrace life's everyday celebrations."
Nice. I'm up for that.
It is also a day to tip your hat to great marketing. Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine, one that gets far more respect than newspaper editors.
