It's Labor Day! A day that we honor our country's work force and who has to go to work today? Service industry folks like us servers, that's who. I saw my friend Nora headed for her restaurant job this morning and she was bemoaning the fact the day would be total shit. Isn't it ironic that waiters so often have to work on a day that is supposed to be for us, and it's a day when we make no fucking money at all because everyone is at the beach or the park? I was also thinking about how many women must have babies on Labor Day and then their husband has to make some stupid ass joke about it. "Gee, honey, I know it's Labor Day, but did you have to take it so seriously? Hardy har har. Get it? Labor day and you're in labor?" And then the woman punches him in the balls. Anyhoo, I am keeping this short because I am taking my ass to Central Park to celebrate the day by playing Frisbee and then taking a nap in the sun. Go do something special for Labor day, y'all. Go plant a tree. Or is that Arbor Day?
