I think I have entered the realm of donating my body to science, while still living. It seems I have decided to see how many days a human being can live off of potato salad alone. In all fairness, I am having homemade peach ice cream later - so that may throw off the results of said experiment.
And I realized that as I get older, I don't really enjoy the fourth of July. It has nothing to do with patriotism or lack thereof - but more about the sheer volume. I love seeing the fireworks, I just wish I didn't have to hear them. I am going to be a nervous wreck by the end of the weekend. It appears the loud, obnoxious holiday observance will be lasting the duration of the 3 day weekend here in Texas.
