Confession...I was standing in the checkout line of my local grocery store a few years ago. It was enough years back that I was writing a check instead of swiping a card.
"What is today I asked the clerk?" She responded with "Well it's Cinco de mayo!"
"Yes, but what day is it?" Laughter and guffaws errupted behind me. Yes, their all-knowing mother didn't know that Cinco de mayo meant literally...the fifth of May. And I learned it from a grocery clerk!
By the way...Hubby just flew in from Mexico City today and reported that no one in Mexico celebrates this holiday anyway!
I might not be so ridiculous after all!
