Which do you celebrate?
Two big events today: cinco de mayo and the Kentucky Derby.
Because George grew up in Kentucky, we watch it. I usually cheer for the horse that won The Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland or, because we are seasoned gamblers, we shout for the horse withe the best name.
And because I taught Spanish, I at least say, “Happy cinco de mayo.” This is an obscure observance in Mexico but very popular in the US because it’s an excuse–as if anyone needs one!– to party. Have fun.
