June 3: Repeat Day

PETE Happy Repeat Day!

May you have a felicitous celebration of Repeat Day!

On June 3, you can repeat your words or actions as many times as you want (which is another good reason to be careful of what you say and do, and go for twice as fun, not twice as awful).


Repetitious speeches and doings are the order of the day every June 3, so be sure to pick good and pleasant things in order to enjoy them again.

You could just repeat things exactly, but I’ve always enjoyed the more creative walking thesaurus repetitions, a la the cabinet of King Azaz the Unabridged, Ruler of Dictionopolis (from Norton Juster’s amazing book The Phantom Tolbooth):

  • The Duke of Definition
  • The Minister of Meaning
  • The Earl of Essence
  • The Count of Connotation
  • The Undersecretary of Understanding

“Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious,
but fools are consumed by their own lips.
At the beginning their words are folly;
at the end they are wicked madness—
and fools multiply words.”

Ecclesiastes 10:12-14
