As we all know, today is National Tax Day, but if you are tired of adding up rows of figures to come up with exact answers, the day we’re celebrating will give you a break – it’s also TAKE A WILD GUESS DAY!!!
There are no prizes to be won for guessing correctly, but it should give your mind the break it needs. Take a chance and take a wild guess today. Make a bet with a co-worker about something – like is it going to rain??? Pretend you are the great Sherlock Holmes and use your powers of deduction or act on a hunch.
Jim Barber created this day and wanted it to coincide with National Tax Day. He had a hunch the day would be a great success – and his hunch paid off! Many people have enjoyed celebrating this wacky holiday in the past.
The whole romance of [Dirty Harry] is the fact that he’s a guy who hates bureaucracy. Well, who doesn’t hate bureaucracy? … You go to the [DMV and] fill out form after form… That’s part of the bureaucratic nightmare that mankind has made. – Clint Eastwood
I’m not a huge “Dirty Harry” fan – it’s not really my style, but that famous line from the movie really is appropriate for today – “Do you feel lucky, punk???”
For some serious fun, you could fill a mason jar with jelly beans (counting them as you fill it) and have co-workers guess how many jelly beans are in there. Or – if there is a pregnant co-worker or the spouse of a pregnant co-worker, you could have everyone guess the sex of the baby if they don’t know already. How about using that great intuition of yours to scout out a great new place for lunch? Act on a hunch and choose a place for lunch. LOL… yeah – I’m a poet. 🙂
Guessing is really a part of everyday life, when you think about it. We venture into uncharted territory almost daily, hoping that our senses are not going to let us down. This is the day to really tap into that sixth sense and shine as a great guesser.
Yep, it’s tax day. Some of us paid in with no promise of a refund, while some of us paid in anticipating a refund. No matter what your situation is today, at least there is some comic relief in sight. Just have some fun, let your imagination go a little crazy and take a wild guess… about anything! 🙂
