There isn't really any origin to the holiday or where it really came from, also makes you wonder why the date is when it is considering we have spring cleaning coming right around the corner. Maybe it's a day to get mentally prepared for the hell we will be experiencing for that big cleaning day.
To put it short, it's almost another way of calling it "opposite" day. In other words, if you do chores around the house, take the day off and let someone else do them. If you don't do any chores, however, you must take those responsibilities so you can show appreciation to the person that usually does them.
So how will I be celebrating this weary, dull day? Well it won't be so dull because Paula and I both have different responsibilities around the house, so we're doing the ole' switcharoo. I'll take care of her several 7-9 cats (not really sure how many) while she takes care of the dog. She'll cook the supper as long as I clean the dishes. I'll do the laundry as long as she clips the hedges. And I'll even polish our jewelry as long as she cleans the weaponry. She'll have her work cut out for her, though, with the 34 different firearms and 63 knives, hatchets and cleavers I have. It'll be enough to keep her busy while I'm taking care the damn cats. At least she could take care of the dog while she's doing her chores, sheesh. And that's entertainment for today in the ole' 570.
