National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day

Be honest.... Does the smoke detector go off every time you make toast? Do you need to read the directions before you boil water? Does your family break out in a cold sweat and run for cover every time you turn on the oven? Is the fire department’s emergency number on your telephone’s speed dial? Are all the sharp knives kept under lock-and-key? Does it look like a tornado went through your kitchen after you open a can of soup?

If cooking and baking just isn’t your cup of tea, hold on to your apron strings. Move over, Lucy Ricardo, June 13 is National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day, a special holiday set aside for folks who should avoid the kitchen and all those fancy appliances altogether! While the origins of this "holiday" are unknown, one can only imagine who “invented” the day.

In honor of National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day, stand up and be proud and say it out loud! Know you are wonderful at so many other things - just stay out of the kitchen!
