Bring out your hamburgers and hotdogs (and craft beer), because today is the best day of the year! I'm not going to spend any more words convincing you Independence Day is the most majestic holiday of them all. You already agree with me. It would be a waste of time.
What I am going to say, though, is that last night I dreamt of a red, white and blue streamer-filled sky so densely wrapped in freedom it was as if our nation's colors were hugging us from above. When I woke up this morning the sky was, sadly, only it's normal shade of blue. But hey, one of three isn't bad, and there are a lot of countries who can't claim the sky wears it's color in honor of their flag.
We USAers can claim that. It may not be true, but that's not the point.
The point is that today is awesome, and one of the best ways (nay, the best) to celebrate it is to drink some American craft beer, hang with friends and family, soak in the summer sun and daydream of all the wonderful things made of red, white or blue. Things like snow flakes, the ocean, hot magma, licorice, select colors of those floaty noodles people play with at pools, my shoes and Ferraris. All of those things are 100 percent unequivocally and irrefutably American, and there are a lot of other things that are, too.
So goodbye everyone, I'm going to go daydream and enjoy everyone's favorite day of the year.
Cheers, and see ya Monday — Nic The Intern
