Root Beer Day
Today, in Connecticut, it's a root beer day. What, might you ask, is a root beer day? Here are the (rather stringent) criteria:
1. It must be either a Saturday or a holiday in the summer such as Independence Day or Memorial Day.
2. It must be 70 to 80 deg F outside.
3. It must be a relatively dry day (right now, the relative humidity is 38%; that is acceptably low).
4. The sky must be either cloudless, or have cirrus clouds. A few other clouds are allowed, but the majority must be cirrus.
Now, what do you do on a root beer day? It is required that you celebrate by drinking either root beer or cream soda (it doesn't matter which brand - choose your favorite) in the afternoon.
So this is a tradition I started a while ago, and have found fun. Take it or leave it.
