TOMMY BOY DAY
Galileo Galilei 1564
The church hated Galileo and everything he said and stood for. He questioned what they thought they “knew”, which unsettled them, scared them, and threatened them. But they had power.
He was declared a heretic and sentenced to house arrest for his remaining life.
The Catholic Church, having condemned him, decided–359 years later, in 1992 that Galileo was in fact right.
*Continue to seek and be open to the truth. If someone says something that you don’t agree with today, call them out on it. Hopefully it will lead to constructive conversation.
Jane Seymour 1951 – a round of golf and pilates
Seymour heads to the golf course often. When she’s not working on her swing, she’s in the gym using a Gyrotonic machine as part of her pilates routine.
After four children, three grandchildren and four marriages, Jane says she’s in better shape than she was 40 years ago.
*Play a round of golf today and/or a get a Pilates workout in. What kind of shape will you be in 40 years?
Susan B. Anthony 1820
Susan B. Anthony Project promotes safety, healing, and growth for all survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and advocates for the autonomy of women and the end of interpersonal violence.
*Susan B. Anthony wouldn’t live to see her dream of women’s suffrage but the project in her name can continue to help women. Think of donating to this cause on her birthday.
Chris Farley 1964 – watch Tommy Boy
“Helen, we’re both in sales. Let me tell you why I SUCK as a salesman.”
Tommy speaks one-on-one and gets on the same level with a waitress, ultimately convincing her to bring him chicken wings Richard commends Tommy for his ability to read people, for getting inside Helen’s head and telling her what she wanted to hear, when she needed to hear it.
*Watch Tommy Boy to learn how to make sales by getting on the same level with people.
Gary Clark Jr. 1984
*Listen to the Blues guitarist of this generation Gary Clark Jr.
Matt Groening 1954 – Krusty burger
*Make this Krusty burger and enjoy it while watching Tommy Boy and a few episodes of The Simpsons. It’s probably on FXX right now. Hey Hey!
I’m grateful that I live in Orlando and can go to Universal Studios to eat a real deal Krusty Burger on this day.
