01 May

Do you remember how much fun it was to crown your best friend Queen of the May,

dress up in a ridiculous dress and hat, grab a ribbon, and do intricate dances while lacing some poor guy to a pole? Or maybe not.

Have a Happy May Day, however you do it!

I have never understood how a maypole works. Maybe I can find a video on Youtube . . .

The only part that sounds familiar is lacing some guy to a pole . . .

Hmmm -- that looks a little different from "workers unite!!". Must go find ribbons...

Scott, I thought you'd gotten that expunged from your record after the community service.
