It’s Mole Day!
Monday, October 23rd, 2023

Okay, not this kind of mole. Although, I think it would be a fun holiday to celebrate although my only interaction with this mole is when I skim them out of the pool (poor things).

What mole are we celebrating? Not the dark spot on your skin. Not the insectivore. Not the double-agent variety. Only a science nerd (chemists, in particular) would know what I’m talking about.

By definition (Merriam-Webster):ย A mole is “the base unit of amount of pure substance in the International System of Units that is defined as having exactly 6.02214076 x 1023 indivisible units (such as atoms or molecules) of that substance.”

Yeah, that went over my head, too. I prefer believing we’re celebrating the insectivore. BECAUSE…when I saw it on a list of holidays, my mind went straight to my “mole hole” of an office in the basement, which is devoid of windows and natural light where I can claim silence and privacy to do my work.

So, I’m celebrating the mole who digs the underground holes like the place where I create.

If you were going to celebrate this holiday, which mole would you choose?

    Actually I would choose the tasty Mexican mole, especially varieties from Oaxaca

    After what those dudes have done to my yard over the years I’m not sure they deserve to have their own day. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Today also happens to be National Horror Movie Day. My younger daughter(32 now) loves scary movies. She is going to be happy to learn that they have their own day.

    Um . . . I actually think I would pass on this one. None of the choses seem celebration worth. Okay, so I am a dud.

    Moles are not my thing but once upon a time I also had an office with no windows, although it wasn’t in a basement. ๐Ÿ˜Š I loved it because I didn’t have any distractions – like the weather if it was raining or snowing. ๐Ÿ˜Š No windows also meant that I had more wall space for cabinets and such.

    The mole I’m the most familiar with is definitely the kind on your skin, LOL! Got lots of those!
