National Waffle Day – August 24, 2017


How to Celebrate National Waffle Day

Keep running. Don’t look back.

As you sprint away from the hatch, scan your surroundings for any sign of stone pedestals and shiny red buttons. Find only grass, trees, and assorted packs of people picnicking, tossing around Frisbees, and otherwise enjoying a fine summer’s day in what appears to be a well-appointed park.

Slow your pace. Take a deep breath. You’re safe for now.

Take a moment to enjoy the fresh air and your reclaimed freedom. Stroll along a path until you find a row of food carts: ice cream, hot dogs, popcorn, and – oh, yes! – waffles. Nothing says “I’ve just escaped a sinister, Twilight Zone-esque recurring nightmare” like waffles. Treat yourself.

Order the most complex combination of waffle, syrups, and toppings the food vendor is willing to provide. Instagram a pic of your waffle monstrosity. Hashtag it #NationalWaffleDay, #America, #Blessed.

Find yourself a bench beneath some shady trees and tuck into your victory waffle. Allow the deliciousness of waffles to wash away your doubts, anxieties, and fears. Such is the magic of waffles.
