TODAY IS BLAH BLAH BLAH DAY
If you recognize the muffled sound of parents in Charlie Brown, you instinctively refer to it as “blah, blah, blah.” Who listens to that, when it’s all just noise? Blah Blah Blah Day is about listening to those noises, and recognizing that people are speaking to you.
How to Celebrate Blah Blah Blah Day
Celebrate Blah Blah Blah Day to do the things you wouldn’t normally do and put an end to those projects that you’ve been putting off. If someone needs you to do something today, listen, pay attention, and do them.
