Walk on Your Wild Side Day

According to Thomas and Ruth Roy, originators of Walk on Your Wild Side Day, "Times wasting, friends. It's high time you went out and did some things no one expects you to do." The Roys encourage everyone to be unpredictable: "Go to work dressed like a gorilla, get a master's degree—do something 'they' said you'd never ever do."
