WANTED: Host City for First-ever Middle Child’s Day Parade

          The worst of the pandemic is behind us. (Where have I heard that before?) So as the founder of the International Middle Child Union, I think the time is right for us to resume our efforts to find a city or town willing  to host the first-ever Middle Child’s Day Parade. I mean, people are traveling and dining out again, going to concerts, movies, sporting events – they even stormed the capitol! Plus, this year the I.M.C.U. is celebrating our 10th anniversary -- a whole decade of obscurity. So surely the time is right
for us to resume our quest to find a place willing to help us celebrate our namesake holiday.
          Along with finding a cure for Middle Child Syndrome, establishing a parade celebrating Middle Child’s Day, which falls on August 12th each year, has long been a stated goal of the I.M.C.U. And we came this close a few years ago. (NOTE: I’m holding my fingers further apart than you’d expect for someone who thinks they were actually close to making something happen.) After some interest from Pittsburgh, PA and Worcester, MA fizzled, I put our efforts on hold for the past two years due to safety concerns during the pandemic -- but I’m not so sure why anymore. In hindsight, I don’t think a large turnout was a very a realistic concern. Still, as the self-proclaimed World’s Leading (and only) Middle Child Advocate, I will continue to fight the good fight, more determined than ever to make sure Middle Child’s Day isn’t treated like some hand-me-down holiday.
          Sure, raising awareness for a holiday nobody pays any attention to is an uphill battle, but when you’re a Middle Child, it’s just another day at the office.
