Yesterday was Appreciate a dragon day and I was lucky enough to spend the evening in good (but evil) company. Yes – that is a young lady red dragon. I had to come up with a “I can handle the heat” pick-up line to get her to talk to me. Don’t tell my girlfriend! We set off a few firecrackers, rented a movie, and chillaxed with a glass of – what else – red wine.
You can celebrate too!
If you haven’t celebrated Appreciate A Dragon day as fully as you would have liked, well, it’s not too late. Dragons are compliment junkies and will be happy to be appreciated anytime – even next week-end.

All right, back to my date…
