As those of us who plagiarize historical information verbatim from Google know, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s defeat of the French on May 5, 1862. I was truly humbled to see my fellow Americans paying tribute to this event in the following ways:

– A classroom full of kindergarteners wearing sombreros and eating little plates of chips and salsa.
– The parking lot so full at a dinky Mexican place that cars were pulling up on the grass, because obviously the only bartender in the world that can make you a good margarita must work at a place with “cantina” in the name.
– A guy holding a pinata and yelling into his cell phone, “I ALREADY GOT IT! WHAT THE HELL ELSE IS THERE?”

Whether it’s more fiesta or siesta, enjoy your day, kids!
