Blah blah … blah-bitty blah blah blah

There should, must be one day when whatever – and most especially whoever – irks you gets a big old blah blah blah.

  • Buy more Easter baskets and Easter grass – Blah.
  • Fight traffic on the Mathews Bridge on the way to shops – Also blah.
  • Office coffee pot newly on empty for me – Blah!

City Hall, parking ticket – BLAH – JTA, take more buses, save gas – BLAH – FP&L, light bill due – BLAH!

Lucky for us this day is today.

Welcome to Blah Blah Blah Day

Always April 17.

Truth to tell, Blah Blah Blah Day is not so much about bitching as about being bitched at.

Spouse says, “Yard needs mowed, and set the new plants out.”

You hear, “Blah blah blah.”

“Gee, honey, those underpants are way too tight. Time for bigger ones.”

Blah blah blah (Kiss my ass.) Blah blah.

Instituted by the good folks at, Blah Blah Blah Day is all about getting around to that list of things that you know you really should do but that you almost never get around to without a little coaching.

Yadda yadda yadda blah blah

Falling as it does right after Income Tax Day, Blah Blah Blah Day can be especially vexing.

No more procrastinating because of receipts and 1040s and H&R Block® and check writing, etc.

Now you’re free to handle these tasks:

  • Three business meetings today – Blah all that.
  • Big report due to the boss man – Blah him.
  • Blah leftovers and brown-bag lunches – I’m eating out.
  • Clean gutters – Blah that, too.
  • Three pairs of clean underwear left – Blah laundry, double-blah hunting mates to dirty socks.
  • Triple blah you and your car keys – The kids and I can walk to the library.
  • And blah you and the phone during my baseball game. That couch time is just for me.

Note to self: Buy more sticky notes, write BLAH! on all, then deploy.

Turn off the noise

Try this for the rest of the day: Stick out your tongue, let your lower jaw go slack and blah all the bad people and nasty things.

That’s right! Put it all on hold with a big juicy BLAH!

Silence the whining, obstrepery and other rank hypocrisy.

Put on your best Blah face and sally forth into the world, gentle readers.

You are captain of your own fate.

Make your own To-Do list!
