Columbus Day

History might have a lot of conflicting views about Christopher Columbus. I mean, did he really “find” America? Was he way too harsh on the people he found there? I suppose I could write a whole post on Columbus, if I really wanted to.

But I don’t.

All I have to say about Columbus is, love him or hate him, he managed to get a holiday named after him, and that holiday is a day I get off from work. Today, I’m getting paid to organize my house and make rolls and cookies.

Thank you, Christopher Columbus.

    Don’t forget that he had one of the nine rings given to mortal men, which gave him power to discover the western hemisphere to begin with. This power also gives you the day off today . . . but not me because video games weren’t invented yet but books were.
