Dear DMC,

A characteristic of dull men is that we do not like surprises.  We want to be ready for whatever happens.  We avoid the unexpected and expect the expected.  A truly dull man always plans well ahead.

Accordingly, mark the calendar for an appropriate event all dull men can enjoy:  National Fossil Day.

In the U.S., it’s celebrated on October 12 this year.  Whether this special day is marked in the U.K. and elsewhere I don’t know.
