Sometimes, and by sometimes I mean after every holiday, I feel like we should celebrate those sad little December 26ths, November 1sts, and of course, July 5ths. The day after a holiday is one of the most depressing and horrendously boring days of the year. You'd think that holiday bliss extends to the next day. It doesn't. If you want proof, look at the number of times I've logged on and off Facebook today.
After the bright, glowing explosion of fireworks last night, I feel like today is a cacophony of rigid lines and harshly realistic angles. It's a parade of humdrum, homey activities. "ow many times do you need to clean the kitchen, Mom?"
"It's July 5th, honey - as many times as I want."
Now don't get me wrong - holidays are a necessity. But can we (please!) just erase December 26th, November 1st, and July 5th from the calendar?
Thanks, Father Time.
May your coffee be strong, your passions electric, and your laughter easy.
