In a conversation earlier today I ended up trying (and probably failing) to explain the differences between Martin Luther King Jr Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Labor Day (national? , civic? , semi-religious feast?, …) The word “holiday” is clearly overloaded. And then there’s “Hallmark”.
Oh, this is gonna be troublesome. The wife has something planned for after work, and I can just see either her fighting traffic in town to pick up me and a bike, or me trying to leave early to bike home in time to shower and change for whatever-it-is.
