Like Clockwork

Today is an odd mixture of holidays. First, there is Punch the Clock Day. A day that, I assume, is meant to be celebrated by punching in and out of any thing you do on time. I don't know of many businesses that still use an actual punch-clock, so I suppose just do your best to be on time coming and going. The second holiday is Thomas Crapper Day. As you may or may not have guessed, Thomas helped great improve the bathroom by inventing the flush toilet. The word "crap" was around before him, though so we aren't celebrating that. No we are going to spend time being VERY thankful that the flush toilet exists and we don't have to do whatever it is that people used to have to do. I imagine it was smelly and disgusting. So thank you, Thomas Crapper, for patenting such a device. And having a chuckle worthy last name.

Thanks for reading!
