"Hard is the heart that loved naught in May...."

Here's what's happening in May... get ready to celebrate!

May is Older Americans Month. You must be this wrinkled to ride.
May 1 is World Asthma Day! I have no joke here. Decorate your inhaler?
May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii. Sometimes the jokes write themselves. Celebrate as you see fit.
May 5 is Free Comic Book Day. Check out the graphic novel display in front of my office. (These are not free, you should check them out, literally.)
May 5 is Cinco de Mayo. Celebrate the Victory of Puebla! Extra points if you can tell me why this Mexican battle was important to the U.S. Civil War.
May 7-11 is National Substitute Teacher Week! Switch seats and pretend to be someone else. No spitballs allowed.
First full moon in May is Buddha Day. Chant a sutra, release caged birds, reflect.

*Just all about stealing taglines from others lately... this one belongs to Geoffrey Chaucer, from The Romance of the Rose and I found it here. Props to Spiderman's Aunt May, who combines the qualities of Older Americans Month and Free Comic Book Day all in one kind of scary image....
