Who knew there really was an Opposite Day? I remember days being declared as Opposite Day from my days in elementary school so the thought of January 25 being designated as a day to celebrate the nonsense that comes with Opposite Day can only bring a smile to my face.
It’s been described as a day to do the opposite of what’s usually done:
Eat breakfast for dinner
Read from the opposite direction
Eat dessert first
Wear summer clothes in the middle of winter (not that it would be a problem here in Florida)
Brush your teeth with your toothbrush in the opposite hand
Of course, you can just talk like the kids I knew who declared the day to be Opposite Day by adding the phrase…if it were opposite day…at the end of the sentence.
I’m looking forward to a little dessert just before eating pancakes for dinner!
