Dependence Day

So, tell me how you’re celebrating your Dependence Day! In case you’re wondering, that’s July 3, the celebration final day of our country’s dependence on someone else. Everyone knew the next day was going to be a biggie — they’d even planned fireworks — and no one could get to sleep. It’s said that George Washington drank 14 cups of warm milk to try and fall asleep in preparation for the big declaration the next day, but he still couldn’t sleep. And that is why on Dependence Day, we symbolically warm a cow’s udders.

I don’t usually make a big deal about Dependence Day, so I suspect I’ll celebrate as I do every other day of the year. By wearing Depends.
