If you didn’t know, now you do because today is the third annual Paul Appreciation Day! And if that’s too much of a mouthful, you can call it PAD.
Two years ago while I was working at camp, I suggested to someone of power that I should get an appreciation day because I did so much for the camp. They agreed!
So Paul Appreciation Day was born. It was announced to the entire camp as follows: “One last thing, today is Paul Appreciation Day so feel free to go up to Paul today and tell him that you appreciate him.”
Everyone was confused. And then the half-hearted, “I appreciate you” comments started rolling in. And then by first snack, everyone had forgotten about it. Not even a cake!
At the end of the day I suggested that Paul Appreciation Day get extended for one more day because I didn’t feel as though I was appreciated enough. And it was! A two-day appreciation bonanza in my honour!
Last year’s PAD was a flop because no one knew about it, but I have high hopes for this year. HIGH HOPES.
Have a happy Paul Appreciation Day to
you and yours and just me!
Let’s just ignore how egotistical it was of me to create my own holiday and just get to the appreciative comments, alright?
