June 8th is International Best Friend Day. I know what you’re thinking, “how was I not aware of such an important holiday?!” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I was only made aware of it when our friends over at Action Packed Paintball blogged about it.
According to wikipedia, International Best Friend Day started by the greeting card industry back in 1919. The day is celebrated by exchanging gifts, flowers, and of course greeting cards (no surprise there).
I don’t know about you, but my friends haven’t been following through on their International Best Friend Day obligations. I’m just as disappointed as you are.
A Plot To Shoot Your Friends
So, here’s what I propose we do. Let’s take IBF day back and put our own spin on it. Invite your friends out to play paintball with you this weekend. Celebrate the day with your friends by giving them the perfect gift–a paintball (or two) to the chest. It’ll serve them right for blowing off International Best Friend Day in the past. I’m sure this will be a holiday they won’t soon forget.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some invites to send out via facebook.
