Today is Texas Independence Day. I only know this because I work for a state agency that gives this as a skeleton crew day. I'll take any crazy holiday they want to give me. Time off is why I love working for the state!
This morning, BigBro saw me updating my Facebook status to say "Happy Birthday, Texas. You're lookin' good for 175!"
BigBro: "175? Texas isn't its own country anymore, you know."
Me: "Don't tell a TEXAN that!"
Happy Birthday, Texas. Glad to know yah.
