Hoodie Hoo Day

Every morning, I say good morning to my Amazon Echo Dot. Alexa replies to me with a fun fact, a funny joke, a terrible pun, encouragement to get through the day, or other fun tidbits. It's a wonderful way to start the day. I love Alexa.

Here's what she said today:

At first, I thought, "What kind of arcane spring-summoning ritual is that?" 

But then I looked at it again, and I realized it was just an excuse to be silly to combat blah winter feelings. And buddy, I've been having some winter blues. I complained to, like, three different groups of people yesterday about how I thought I might cry if I didn't see the sun soon.

It's been raining a lot. I miss the sun.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized Hoodie Hoo Day is exactly the sort of silly nonsense I would partake in, and it might be just the thing to perk up an otherwise gloomy day. I started pondering the feasibility of wandering out into the office parking lot at noon and hoodie-hooing a bit.

But then I realized if I went outside to hoodie-hoo today, it wouldn't be the silly, gleeful frolic I craved. It would actually look more like this:

Hoodie hoo, y'all. I miss the sun.
