If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for some craziness because it's Absurdity Day!  Feel free to let loose at any time!  But let's get right into celebrating Absurdity Day!


Because most people go through life trying not to stand out too much, in hopes that everyone will see them as "normal". And the second someone does something that others around them aren't use to, it is labeled as absurd. But really, if everyone were "normal" and no one did anything out of hand or unexpected, then life would be pretty boring. We'd laugh less, we'd never be surprised and nothing would really stimulate our mind that much. So today is a reminder that being normal and doing normal things isn't always the right way to live.  But what's it mean to be absurd? Well, if you go by the dictionary definition, you'd have to do something that doesn't make sense. Go against your better judgement and do something that logically no one else would think to do. Something that others will thing is wrong or just plain stupid. Do you think you can handle that?

And if you really want a crash course on absurdity, then look at who is really popular today. Can you think of anyone who dresses in ways that really make no sense at all? Outfits that make you think, "What the heck were they thinking?" Or what about people who do things that you didn't think were humanly possible or you're way too afraid or intelligent to try yourself? That pretty much sums up half of what people watch on YouTube every day. And that should tell you something.  Absurdity is actually entertaining.


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, this one is going to be a lot easier than any other celebration. Why? Because all it takes is the ability to let go of what other people think of you, for just one day. You know all those things you've thought about but didn't do because someone might say something bad about you? Well, that's the kind of stuff you want to do today! Who cares what other people think; today is your day to have fun YOUR way!  In fact, you can have even more fun observing other peoples' reactions to what you do today. So dress up as wacky as you want to, walk down the main street in your town and enjoy all the faces people make. Order odd things to eat, while you wait in line at a public restaurant, and enjoy all the "are you kidding?" looks the employees give you. Take a stand and say something during a conversation that you believe to be true, even if you know someone isn't going to like hearing it.

And you don't have to be the only one that takes part in the absurdity; you can invite your friends to go crazy with you! Think of how many heads you'll turn if you and your friends walk through town wearing Saran wrap outfits. Or if you all go to a grocery store, pick out the weirdest things you can find, and then all check out in the same line. You might just make that cashier's day!  Have a great day and enjoy the senselessness!
