Our friends on the internets tell us that today is National Hammock Day. With help from the 1951 Goofy short, we know just how to take this auspicious holiday Lion Down:
Start by getting a hammock.
Make sure you have a place to hang both sides.
If you don’t, go in search of trees.
Find the appropriate sized arbor and transport it to your home.
Prep the area.
Hydration is key since your plan involves gardening.
Plant tree and then hang the hammock.
Really really relax.
Until the doorbell rings.
If no one’s there, go back to the hammock. But be alert… that doorbell probably didn’t ring itself.
Watch out for sneak attack lions. They have a habit of just showing up.
And dreaming of stealing your hammock.
And untying hammocks. At which point disaster strikes.
And you might get carried away.
And messed with.
And possibly hammocked from a building.
You may find yourself in a hammock… attached to nothing.
But never fear. Just go back to your yard and start growing your own tree. It’s an investment in the future. You’ll thank us on next year’s Hammock Day. We promise. (And we’re never lion.)
