Here in the U.S.,Â Labor Day isÂ this coming weekend. And of course the Labor Day holidayÂ was created to celebrateÂ the pain and sufferingÂ of labor during childbirth. All over the country, families and friends will gather for parties where they will sweat, grunt, and curse to hell the son of a bitch that didÂ that to them, all in recognition of the experience that is the miracle of childbirth. And the day will culminate with the ceremonial tossing of the placenta onto the barbecue pit, symbolizing that the wondrous labor is complete.
And it’s because of this thatÂ . . . . .Â Wait . . . . What? . . . . Hold on a second . . . . .
Okay, I’m being told that’s not what Labor Day is about.
Well, it doesn’t matter. Because I have three words for you that make theÂ question moot: THREE. DAY. WEEKEND.
Three days withoutÂ having to think about work projects, bosses, or theÂ guy with the severe nasal problems in the next cube. Let’s all take this break together!
It’s Samapalooza, featuringÂ The Skepchick Readers!
And we have all the money we needÂ to do whatever we want.Â Â Â
What do you want to do? Where should we go? What should I load on the Samapalooza iPod? Snacks? Beverages? Should we invite anyone else? Let’s Rock!!
