August 28th Race Your Mouse around the Icons Day

This is another of those “Why?????” days. It was created and copyrighted by So get to racing that mouse at your computer. And what do you get if you win? Satisfaction? Maybe it involves matching mazes, a pet mouse racing in a small maze while you race in a matching larger one. At least maybe you could put cheese at the end for both of you. Just don’t draw a maze on your computer screen – I am sure the boss would not like it.

How to celebrate – Start an office olympics. If you can’t do it in person, do it virtually! Figure out what you will win if you do win!

August 28th Race Your Mouse Day

This is an odd day, maybe that’s why copyrighted it. Who knows. The idea of today is to race against the mouse on your computer to see if you can beat it to where ever it is that you are going. I’m not really sure that it possible but if you have absolutely nothing else to do, try it! Or, if you happen to have a pet mouse, or even a mouse that’s not a pet, see if you can beat it to where it is going. That will be difficult because mice don’t often keep to a course if they know there is a person around. It’s all about the cheese! So there you have it, race the mouse on your computer or find a mouse in your house, yard or where ever, and race it to where ever it is going.

How to celebrate – Race your computer mouse. Race a real life mouse. Find something better to do like, take a nap!

August 28th Race Your Mouse Day

Well, the people at created today. I am not exactly sure what they meant but I assume it has something to do with your computer and playing a game of some sort where you use your mouse. Like we don’t have enough to do!?!


However, if you finish your work early you might be able to play a game or two, or if you are really, really bored at home. I suppose it is better than watching a pot of water ready to boil. But maybe, just maybe they mean something else by it.


Perhaps they meant that you should watch your cat chase a mouse today. See who wins the race. Cats seem to be one of the creatures on earth that love to make the kill just for the fun of it. I’m not sure it really would make it as a spectators game, but then there are people who like to watch that sort of thing I suppose.


Or maybe they mean to go to Disneyland or Disney World and race Mickey Mouse around the park! That sort of makes sense and could be a lot of fun. The only real issue here is not getting arrested as you chase Mickey, or Minnie around. I would bet you could win this race… it gets awfully hot inside those costumes and the character actors could not last long if running at full speed.


Well, however you interpret Wellcat’s meaning, today is your day to race your mouse. Just remember, make it sporting, maybe a little more challenging than the Mayweather McGregor fight Saturday night.  Or better yet maybe make your day even more productive and take a nap!

How to celebrate – Find a computer game that allows you to use your mouse in a race. Find a mouse, and a cat if you don;t already have one, and let the races begin! Find another hobby.
