Well, no matter how your day went, you can always take comfort in the fact that today is National . . . I mean International . . . no, wait Galactic Star Wars Day. I say, “May the 4th be with you,” and you respond, “And also with you.”
For me, there’s something comforting about Star Wars. Maybe it’s because it takes me back to my childhood and the original trilogy that awakened my imagination and dreams and birthed in me a love for all things fantastical and mythological.
It gets better.
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, which in this part of the world means Go Somewhere and Eat Mexican Day. I’m sure there’s an actual history behind it, but as with all holidays these days, it has turned into an excuse to eat mass quantities of food. If you plan just right, you could end up eating tacos tomorrow. Or you could avoid the inevitable and insane crowds at all Mexican restaurants and just eat your tacos on Thursday, which just happens to be . . .
Revenge of the 6th. It’s another Star Wars day. I’m not really sure of the point, other than it’s a play on Revenge of the Sith, which is Episode III in the Star Wars saga (and the best of the prequel trilogy in my humble opinion).
That’s it. Enjoy some Star Wars and tacos. That’s my prescription for a good week — or at least a reprieve from a not so good week.
