El Morno is taking the day off, but I would feel terrible if I didn’t wish you a Happy Toothpaste Tube Day! Washington Sheffield, a dentist in of New London, Conn. invented the collapsible metal toothpaste tube on May 22, 1892. Where in the world would be without the toothpaste tube? Do you squeeze from the bottom or any random place on the tube? Don’t you just hate those flip tops they put on toothpaste tubes these days? Awful. Really Awful.
Just a quick reminder that today is Vanilla Pudding Day which has been around since the 19th century. Most culinary historians agree that our modern recipe evolved from custards, which date back to Ancient Rome. Jell-O introduced its first line of instant pudding in the 1950s. The advertising campaign announcing the new product promoted it as a “busy-day dessert.” Homemade Vanilla Pudding
You want to see the busy-day pudding commercial too?? Fine.
Gosh, I don’t want to stunt your musical growth, so I better inform you that today is Buy a Musical Instrument Day.
And finally, I leave you with this because I’m hoping you’re as easily amused as I am. You are right? Easily amused?
Carry on, I’ll be back tomorrow to celebrate Turtle Day!
Odd Loves Company!
