I’m completely embarrassed, that on Veteran’s Day, I did…
I fed the cat, watched Netflix (but did not chill), used the microwave, drank a poorly executed martini, and avoided showering.
Pathetic, in comparison to people who died for freedom. My dad and brother are veterans. I have relatives — great uncles, I think, brothers — who one fought for the North, and one fought for the South, in the Civil War. The most important thing I did today was feed a cat.
I could rationalize that veterans fought for my right to have a lazy holiday. My dad was a veterinarian. Maybe he would like the fact that I kept my cat alive.
No. Again, embarrassed.
And now that I think about it, I “like”-d other people’s tributes to their family members who are veterans on Facebook. Is “like”-ing things a verb? An action? Mmm….barely passable as conscious.
Respect veterans. Thank you for your service to sloths like me.
