Honestly, it really is. It’s like a fake holiday. The damn kids have school off, but we don’t get the day off from work.
Let’s look at a quick holiday breakdown:
St. Patrick’s Day: An excuse to get wasted in the middle of the week. And who doesn’t love green beer?
Valentine’s Day: This one’s for the ladies, [...]

So as we’ve recently learned, we are being watched by the MTA. We the bloggers, that is.
