King Tut Day

Margie: I am proud to celebrate King Tut Day today although it actually falls on the 4th. This day is to recognize the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen's Tomb.

I was a librarian most of my life so I know all about King Tut. Maybe Edna dated him once? If you'd like to know more then I suggest you visit your local library for books on Egyptian history.

Edna, did you ever study King Tut in school? I don't think you cared much about history. You were more interested in your hair and nails.

Edna: Oh, please. Margie, the only reason you know about this holiday is because I told you about it, so stop acting like such a know-it-all. Besides, you're flat-out lying to these folks: I know good and well that everything you know about King Tut you learned from that Steve Martin song.

Just you remember, Margie, God punishes liars.

I've always been fascinated by Tut's tomb - how amazing it must have been to discover all of its treasures untouched!

So you dated him? One ? comes to mind which I cannot post here because my mind is in the gutter today.

On another note I had not idea the 4th was King Tut's day. Pretty cool and thanks for the info.

I never knew they celebrate such things. Then again they celebrate things like doorman day, so why not.

We do not celebrate King Tut Day in the Philippines because no one here knows who in the heck (can I say that?) he was. My Sainted Patient Wife,a Filipina,wasn't even taught in school who Hitler was (not that I'm trying to compare Hitler and Tut.) I dare not show her your blog entry for today since that will mean I'll have to take an hour or two to explain it to her. I,however,will celebrate this special day by downing a couple of San Miguel beers!
