This one’s too good to ignore. The Writer’s Almanac notes the key differences between Father’s Day and Mother’s Day:
Mother’s Day is still the busiest day of the year for florists, restaurants, and long-distance phone companies. Father’s Day is the day on which the most collect phone calls are made.
For the record, I’m accepting no collect calls today.
