June 8, 2021 – National Name Your Poison Day | Best Friends Day
What's Your Drink Of Choice?
Welcome to June 8th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate pre-picked poison and pals who are the perfect fit.
Most people saunter up to a bar and aren’t sure what to order. They typically settle for a beer or wine. But wouldn’t it be cool to have a signature drink that you can order with confidence? Like Carrie Bradshaw, who loves Cosmopolitans. Or The Dude from Big Lebowski, who wouldn’t be caught drinking anything other than a White Russian. Or perhaps the most famous drink order of all time—James Bond. As we all know, his drink of choice is a vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred. It’s National Name Your Poison Day and while you can’t possibly be as smooth as Mr. Bond when you order your drink, knowing your beverage of choice will save you time—and may get you some cool points with your friends.
Most of us choose our friends because they like the same things we do. That makes them good companions through thick and thin and our “go to” for having a good time. But best friends aren’t necessarily our twin. Take Bella the Labrador retriever and Bubbles the elephant. This pair met at Myrtle Beach Animal Safari after Bubbles was rescued from Africa. Their unlikely friendship was featured in the movie Ace Ventura II and even a Janet Jackson Video! What makes these besties so special is their love of water. They can be found splashing around, playing catch and cuddling afterwards. And while your bestie might not double as a perfect leather sofa, On Best Friends Day, be sure to show them love for being the perfect fit in your life!
