Cinco De Mayo

Funny, we all just look for a reason to go out and celebrate.

And Cinco De Mayo is one of those perfect days. I mean half the American populations doesn't even know what the day really signifies.

"It's the Mexican Independence day..."

WRONG!!

According to Wikipedia:
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a holiday held on May 5 that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over Frenchforces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza SeguĂ­n.[2][3] It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States.[4][5][6][7] While Cinco de Mayo sees limited significance and celebration nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed nationwide in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.[8] Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day,[9] the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.[10]




Did you just read that? Yeah I really didn't read the whole thing either. But you get the point.

So today was a wonderful day! I went to the post office this morning and there was not one...... but TWO letters there waiting on me. 



Excited does not begin to even describe how I felt!

Today is two months down!! Now that is a reason to celebrate!


Red, Hollywood, and I went to eat Mexican to celebrate. As I sat listening to the girls talk about their recent dating disasters I realized that somethings never change. Different day, different guy, same ol' crap. Why is that?

I know, what is it about relationships where it seems like everyone has the same old crap stories about dating. Isn't it a relief to know you don't have to go back out there?
