Dueling Holidays (Limerick)

After I posted a limerick celebrating “Worship Of Tools Day,” a Facebook Friend informed me that March 11th is also National Napping Day. So I must immediately correct this oversight:

Dueling Holidays (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s holiday time on all fronts,
And I’m feeling a bit like a dunce:
Though I recognized Tool Day,
I missed Naps Are Cool Day.
Please don’t nap and use tools all at once.

    they need a tag on tools to remind people of that…a warning…ha….

    They put warnings on sleeping tablet packages advising people that these pills could make them drowsy, and that they should avoid driving and using heavy machinery! Whatever happened to common sense?

    Ha! And stay away from medication. And I suppose Grapefruit juice. Much to be careful from in this big world! Superb as always. k.

    I missed both… No tools handy, so I’ll just go back to bed! :)

    I prefer a day designated to nap. So thank you for correcting the ‘oversight’ and sharing, Madeleine!
