If you know me or have ever had the extreme pleasure of conversing with me in person, you know the basics about me: I love the Lord Jesus, I love a cold drink and a good cuss word and of course, I freakin' love the Presidents of the United States of America. You probably know that Franklin Pierce, our nation's 14th President is far and away my favorite, but really, I love them all with the same passion.
Because of this deep love for these men and this great country, I want everyone to enjoy this day. I want everyone to throw their hands in the air and wave them like they DO care. Tell someone, "Happy President's day," and mean it. Share a fun fact, share a not-so-fun fact-- take pride in the fact that we live in a country where we elect our leaders and then throw them out when they suck. Rally around the cry that a self-educated man born in a log cabin who suffered from extreme depression could become POTUS or that a dude who was once a prominent actor could rise to be the most powerful man in the world.
To get you started, here are some ideas on how to enjoy this day like a POTUS would...
You could skinny dip in a lake or river like John Quincy Adams...you could go on a shopping spree at Brooks Brothers like William Howard Taft...you could go to the dentist and get some wooden teeth like George Washington...you could rent a house at the Jersey Shore like Presidents Grant, Arthur, Hayes, Harrison, McKinley, Wilson and Garfield (who died at the Shore, actually)...you could drink in excess like Franklin Pierce and then quote scripture, you could play the saxophone for your cat like Clinton...the list goes on and on...
Don't let this day pass you by.
And if you feel like it might, just ask yourself, "What would POTUS do?" and PARTY!
