October 21st is celebrated as “National” Babbling Day.
Our 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, notably not a
blatherskite, was commonly referred to as “Silent Cal.” There is a story about a woman who approached President Coolidge at a dinner party and teased him that she had made a bet with someone who had told her she wouldn’t be able to get more than two words out of the president. Coolidge’s definitive response to her: “You lose.”
Today, in honor of President Coolidge, I am boycotting Babbling Day. Why, you may ask?
Well, no comment, of course.
Enjoy your day, babbling or otherwise.
