Do you get tired of flipping through a paper calendar, computer calendar or cell phone calendar just to find out how many days are in a particular month? After reading this tip, you will be able to figure out the number of days in a month and you won’t ever have to flip through a calendar! This is a sure fire way of calculating the days of the month on the knuckles of your hands.
Counting Days In A Month On My Boney Knuckles
First, let tell you that even before I lost inches all over my body because of my new grain free lifestyle, I had boney knuckles. Yes, my knuckles have always been sharp and pointed. They are just one more thing to love about me. 😉 Also, don’t look at all the freckles on my hand. As a matter of fact, just totally ignore them!
So this is how you determine the number of days in a month. Clench your hand into a fist and hold it out in front of you. Starting from the pinkie finger and moving toward the index finger (pointer finger), you are going to use the index finger of the opposite hand to touch the knuckle and then the space between the knuckle to identify the months. The knuckle months have 31 days and the spaces between the knuckles have 30 days. It looks like this:
Pinkie knuckle = January = 31 days
Space between knuckles = February = This is the exception, 28 or 29 days
Ring finger knuckle = March = 31 days
Space between knuckles = April = 30 days
Middle finger knuckle = May = 31 days
Space between knuckles = June = 30 days
Index finger (pointer finger) = July = 31 days
When you get to the pointer finger and say July, tap the same knuckle again and say August = 31 days as you head back across the knuckles toward the pinkie. This time you will run out of months before you run out of knuckles like this:
Index finger (pointer finger) = August = 31 days
Space between knuckles = September = 30 days
Middle finger knuckle = October = 31 days
Space between knuckles = November = 30 days
Ring finger knuckle = December = 31 days
By the way, I caught you looking at my freckles and I felt it when you played connect the dots like Alyssa used to do all the time. While sitting in church, I used to lay my hand on her leg or lap and she would seize the moment to draw the solar constellations. One of them, of course, was the Big Dipper.
So you think that is funny? Yeah, I hear you!
Wait! Put that Sharpie down and don’t step any closer!
Oh my goodness! You can’t play connect the dots! Help!

(calling over my shoulder) See you tomorrow after you put the Sharpie away!!
