Wisconsin Bar to Offer Middle Children a Free Shot -- of Attention.

Swing Inn for some attention.
          Middle Children in southwest Wisconsin are in for something they're not used to. Swede's Swing Inn, located in Ferryville, WI, promises to serve up the extra shot of attention they so desperately crave. But of course there’s a catch. (Isn’t there always?) They'll have to wait until Sunday, August 15 -- three days after the official celebration of Middle Child’s Day. “Hey, beggars can't be choosers. At least we remembered,” says owner Swede Knutson.
          Fair enough.
          As the founder of the International Middle Child Union, I say – yes, please! I mean, I've been trying to raise awareness for Middle Child's Day for years, so any recognition is appreciated, even if it's belated. But Swede puts a positive spin on it. “Celebrating on the weekend will be more fun,” he says. “It's the least we can do for the Middle Children in our area. And I mean that literally! That's all we're doing. No deals. No discounts. Just some straight up attention.”
          Okay, we'll take it.
          As a show of gratitude, I am naming Swede's Swing Inn an I.M.C.U. “Official Middle Child's Day Celebration Location.” Very few establishments receive this honor, I might add.
          Of course, very few want it.
