Mrs. Havisham

Today is Old Maid's Day! I at first thought that today was about a card game that I had no idea how to play, but luckily for me, it wasn't. No, today is instead intended to raise awareness of the women of the world who have not found that special person yet and are ... er... gaining years? Being a guy, I have to admit I don't really know how to tell anyone how to go about acting upon this holiday. I tried researching it and the most likely story seems to be that it started around the time of WWII when a lot of young fair ladies who had lost their man in the war were encouraged to go to large social meet and greets with soldiers who had survived the war. So... I... I guess if you feel like you are an 'old maid' (not that I'm saying you look old at ALL... OR that all women do is clean like maids) then you should go out on the town and try to meet Mr. Right?

I'm going to stop typing. All this post can do is dig me a shallow grave.

Thanks for reading!
