Transcript for March 27th
Welcome to March 27th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate all things Joe and the winding road less traveled. More after the break from our founder, Marlo Anderson.
Ever wonder why we call coffee a “cup of Joe”? Back in World War I, Joseph Daniels, the Secretary of the Navy, banned alcohol on naval bases. He thought he could make up for it by increasing rations on coffee. As you can imagine, sailors were not happy about this and sarcastically began referring to coffee as “a cup of Joseph Daniels,” which then got shortened to “a cup of Joe.” But today isn’t just about our favorite caffeinated beverage. It’s about celebrating all the people we know and love who have the name Joe. So today on National Joe Day, round up your friends Joey, Joanna, Jodie, and Joseph and take ‘em out for lunch or maybe just grab a cuppa…well, Joe.
As children, we were all artists. If crayons or markers found their way into your little hands, off you went, scribbling to your heart’s content. But life has a way of beating a straighter path, which most of us follow in favor of conformity, the slow death of so many things. Unless you’re an artist and you’ve gathered some courage, that creativity seems to all but vanish. But the curvy path still exists and can show up in a heartbeat with crayon in hand. On National Scribble Day follow the winding road back to your roots! Oh, the places you will go, if you do!
