It's a bird. It's a plane. No - It's Kite Day.
So you say, Where are all the kite flying photos?
And I say, Go fly a kite.
The absence of pics featuring us with kites soaring gracefully above our heads serves as a very accurate telling of the day. The fact of the matter is - not many kites were flying that day. Personally I think all future occasions should be called “Try to Fly a Kite Day” because that is what most of us did – we tried. If one might say, "Maybe you had a bum kite". I might responsed "Pricey kites, cheap kites, free kites, homemade kites, kites made of of tissue, kites made of plastic grocery bags, there was even a family heirloom kite and none stayed airborne very long". Nonetheless we made some new friends and had an absolute blast. My advice - follow the old adage, “If a first you don't succeed…” put the kite on your head and take a cute photo - hince the photo on the right.
