Ms Owl flew in this morning,carrying a bright red ribbon in her talons. (I thought it was a ribbon. I didn't look too closely,because she is an owl-albeit a very graceful one, and she sometimes carries little snacks with her you might not wish to examine too closely-unless you are another owl . But I digress.)
"Good morning !", she called. " Did you know tomorrow is National Wear Red Day ?"
"Not YOU !", she chuckled. " It's women who are supposed to wear red. February is Heart Month, and wearing red is a way of drawing attention to womens' heart problems."
"Well," she said, glancing at her watch. " I've got to get going. I have a lot of things to do, and I've just located a burrow of low-fat field mice. Catch you later !"
All right, ladies: I've done my good deed for the day: tomorrow is indeed National Wear Red Day...but that does not mean you have to go out and buy that red party dress you've been lusting for !!
Take care of your hearts,because we men need you around !
