National Take a Hike Day



I am observing National Take a hike day on November 17, as the most celebrated day of the year.


In fact I have been counting down the days until this fabulous day arrived, when at long last I have permission to delete contacts, with non compliance to Politically correct Protocol.


Listing my “friends” I have patiently waited until today to set the record straight. Prepared texts from months prior, explaining why I have chosen them to Take a Hike.

Practicing my new mantra, which I personally originated, I heralded out in the airways-


Nada caca: No more BS, cut the crap, enough is enough, I’m done drinking the Koolaid, You've out used your second chances, and I’m moving on

Even shouting out Nada Caca feels good to the soul and freeing to the mind.
