Many of you have complained that you were notified about National Duck Out For A Drink Day too late to properly celebrate the occasion. I am sympathetic to your plea, and also deeply moved by the fact that it is, at least here in New York, an absolutely gorgeous day. So, by the power vested in me by the Internet, I hereby declare today, August 26th, to be National Duck Out For A Drink Day (Observed). Tell your friends and co-workers! But mark your calendars for next year, though; I have better things to do than spend my days encouraging you to leave work to knock back a quick shot. Oh, wait, I don't. Anyway, Happy Holidays!
