64: This Email Smells Like BBQ And Freedom

This email smells like BBQ and freedom

Hey, hi, hello, email reader.

I’m going to ask you a question as you scroll this on your digital device.

Why are you reading this?

Yeah email is cool and all, but you know what’s better? Celebrating Memorial Day, preferably outdoors.

I love Memorial Day. Aside from getting together with friends and family eating delicious meat (or veggie) products slathered in Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce (at least in my house), we take time to celebrate those that fought for the United States.

Folks like my dad, grandpa, and countless uncles.

I find that really cool.

So close this email, archive it, delete it, file it, ignore it, whatever, and chill. Enjoy it. Take some time to be ordinary as hell and relax with your favorite people.

What did I find interesting this week?

Nothing since I’m currently eating so much food right now. I got you next week, promise.

So here’s a GIF of Obama dancing on a pizza.

Thanks for reading,

-James
