Important July dates
Posted by Mary Fletcher Jones
But how many people are going to talk about International Kissing Day? Or the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona? They might get the Tour de France, sure, but the Palio?
Nah, YOU got the Palio!
You are going to OWN Twitter, my friend. Will they ever be surprised! Prince George’s first birthday? The Monty Python reunion debut? Comic-Con? Who knew you were such a cultural chameleon? You trendster, you!
I see your Facebook Likes going up up up. They name you among the cognoscenti, in hushed and reverent tones…
Your editorial calendar is on fire! It’s hot hot hot!
