It’s Tuesday, September 6, 2016, and it’s Coffee Ice Cream Day. (What I have at home is Breyer’s Salted Caramel ice cream, which I’d recommend.) And get ready, for tomorrow is National Beer Lover’s Day; the apostrophe’s position apparently means that we’re celebrating only a single beer lover. Who is that?
On this day in 1522, Magellan’s ship The Victoria returned to Spain, becoming the first ship to have sailed around the world. In 1901, the anarchist Leon Czolgosz shot U.S. President William McKinley in New York; McKinley died of an infection eight days later (Czolgosz was convicted and electrocuted). And on September 6, 1972, 9 Israeli athletes were killed by Palestinian terrorists at the Munich Olympics. Two others had been killed the previous day. Notables born on this day include Jane Addams (1860) and Jane Curtin (1947). Those who died on this day include, besides the 9 Israeli athletes, Sully Prudhomme (1907) and Ernest Tubb (1984). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is impatient to go home after her walkies (note that Cyrus, who can’t get through the gate, is carrying his ball).
Hili: I’ve been waiting and waiting for you.A: I know, you’ve been there for five seconds already.
Hili: Czekam na was i czekam.
Ja: Wiem, jesteś tu już od pięciu sekund.
