Bonding Day

As we have discussed in the past, the Yummish Movement is rather holiday intensive. Of the scores of holidays recognized, the most important of these is Bonding Day.

Bonding Day is celebrated on February 14, making this lesson either embarrassingly late or impressively early. This past Bonding Day coincided with an important Council Retreat, preventing me from giving the topic the serious thought and study it warrants. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Bonding Day is the time set aside for careful, contemplative reflection about the important relationships in our lives. Though the more orthodox members of the Council tend to disagree, it is generally accepted that this thoughtful meditation can happen concurrently with activities like a trip to the amusement park or dancing at a rave. The nature of the celebration will be determined by the individual Yum's involved. What's important is that by the end of the day, you feel closer to the people in your life.

There ya' go. Duty discharged. Whew.

Today's Yummish Exercise:
Toss out any candy or flowers you have left over from Valentine's Day. I mean, come on already. It's been over a month. What's wrong with you?
