Countdown to Towel Day 2010
« on: February 14, 2010, 08:04:22 PM »
Its 100 days until Towel Day 2010 and I still haven't figured out what I am doing for Towel Day, other than carry a towel.  So I thought about how Towel Day is often quite fun when the towel is very much out place.  My favorite was when I had jury duty and served on a trial on Towel Day.  Hard to believe they selected a juror with a towel, but they did.  Anyway, I would like to count down the days until Towel Day with ideas for the most awkward places/events you can bring your towel to on Towel Day.  I'll put in one idea a day, others can too.  First post of the day gets to declare how many days until Towel Day.

100 Days Until Towel Day!!!

Awkward place to bring your towel:

The White House

I can just image trying to explain Towel Day to the Secret Service.

They let you have it on a jury? That's beyond priceless. :D

I dunno what I'm doing yet either, but I'll try to think of something.

99 Days Until Towel Day!!!

Another awkward place to bring your towel:

church

Particularly during a service, like mass.  We did this last time Towel Day landed on a Sunday and there were plenty of judgmental stares.  Non-participating relatives didn't want to sit next to us.

Jacket and tie required restaurants

If you have the jacket and tie, will they let you in with the towel too?  I haven’t tried this one, but I do wonder...

While every body else is wearing a suit and tie you have a suit, tie, and a towel around your neck it's kind of awkward because every body else is Staring at you with an awkward look.
