Proud to be a ‘Merkin!
Break out the bunting; it’s that time of year again. This is a special holiday season for me since I’m getting a three day weekend! Woo-hoo!
While I do love this country, I’m not particularly partial to American exceptionalism. Jingoism just reeks of being dreadfully dull and tacky. On the other hand, I can’t think of any other country I’d rather be living in at the moment. The food here is simply the best, and despite what you may have heard, the water is actually safe to drink. While the United States may not be perfect, it is a really terrific place to live and work.
If there’s one thing I hate about the US, it’s all the polarizing politics. This is a presidential election year, so it’s a little worse than usual. To be fair, it’s nothing compared with the previous four elections but still enough to make me gnash my teeth. I’m just going to put all that stuff to the side and enjoy this Independence day.
Still going strong after 240 years! Happy 4th of July!
