I woke up this morning trying to look at the bright side. Sure the Democrats now have control of both the Senate, House and the Presidency, but at least the Republicans have finally imploded. I was planning on celebrating by having a big sandwich in honor of National Sandwich Day. I could have swore that National Sandwich Day was November 5th. I was going to write a post encouraging everyone to have a sandwich so I looked up National Sandwich Day just to be sure I had the date right and what do I find? I missed it. It is actually November 3rd.
My bright spot quickly faded, but then I decided that collectivism be damned. Who needs a National Day for anything. I love sandwiches and therefore I will celebrate them any day I feel like it. So, today it is. I have always said that all you really need in life is a good sandwich, a comfortable place to sit, and someone to share it all with. I found out how true this really was while working in Antarctica for five months. I had access to good sandwiches, but there was not a comfortable chair on the entire continent.
So, today I will sit in my recliner and eat a big sandwich. It should be the best money I will spend all week. Maybe it will cheer me up.
