a little day called hokomo
Today, the Biscuit invented her own holiday.
I guess she got so sick of me rejecting the name "Omla" for everything from our new fish to the calico cat in the street to her brother's toy car that she had to stake out her imaginative territory.
Let me tell you about Hokomo Day.
Hokomo is pronounced a lot like "Kokomo", the song from Cocktail that we used to sing in fifth grade to annoy the gym teacher. Remember when Tom Cruise was a hot young star and not a crazed religious-alien midget?
But that's not important now. You need to know about Hokomo Day.
* Hokomo Day celebrates running, jumping, and sometimes spinning around.
* The official food of Hokomo Day is green Goldfish crackers.
* Presents are given on Hokomo Day, and those presents are umbrellas.
*Hokomo Day is in late Spring-- June 20, to be exact. But it happens next week.
You are now prepared to observe Hokomo Day. Go forth and spin around or something, but not while holding your Hokomo umbrella, and not after eating a bunch of green Goldfish, because I'm pretty sure putrid green vomit and poked out eyeballs are not part of the revelry.
