Alright, kiddies. There are two types of people in this world. The type with zero responsibilities today who are sleeping in until noon, and have a boss or a job with great respect for Christopher Columbus. In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue... And then there is the type that had to get up bright and early today to work and tend to the land that Columbus so thoughtfully discovered for us in the first place.
If you are a member of the former, don't brag about it. We're bitter.
Also, we have plenty of things to do this week whether you have today off or not. So, ha!
