Lots of people have been making Bernie Sanders’ mitten memes in the past few days (see my analysis of them here), and LOTS more have been enjoying them! As a maker of slightly oversized mittens that get a lot of attention when I wear them, I thought, why not show them off like Bernie did? Don’t just make the meme, be the meme! So with my friend Edgar, I took a folding chair outside of my building, and assumed the pose to get a few pics below. And then I thought, as I often do for most things I do, why couldn’t other people do the same? I mean, lots of people would have fun and beautiful and awesome mittens to show the world. This is the perfect moment to show them, and this is the perfect way to show them!
Here’s a simple and fun Facebook meme idea as you reflect back on your year. Think about some themes, big events, important memories and such for your year, and pick a song that describes each, with a little description, to share.

It makes for a less mundane status update than the usual daily life thing or news shared by people on newsfeeds.
Seems Dictionary.com already has a #wordwednesday hashtag used for nominating an interesting word once each week. Well, lots of people won’t agree with that. With this, though, you pick your own interesting word and it benefits you for certain.
That’s why I do my version of #wordwednesday.
If you want a resource, there are many, including Pinterest boards on words. Here’s my board on English words, as well as one on non-English words that I wished were available in English. Well, that doesn’t stop me from using them or telling others about them! Just like how English incorporate so many words from so many other languages into English, I just do it informally ahead of the day when I know it will just have to be. 🙂
Give it a try! You can do it on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram or any number of other social and less than social media. 🙂
