Good afternoon everybody! How are you today?
I just wanted to wish everybody who celebrates Cinco de Mayo, a very happy and joyful day.
A quick history lesson, Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence day, that falls on September 16th and is called El Grito de la Independencia.
Cinco de Mayo or Batalla de Puebla marks the day that the undermanned Mexican army took on an invasion by a much bigger French army.
Obviously, there is way more to this story but, for us Americans, this abbreviated history is enough to sound smart later today or tonight when you are the bars giving people history lessons.
Let's not be naive, Cinco de Mayo in America has been exploited by Corona to make a holiday for drinking. Not that theres anything wrong with that but let's not have revisionist history.
So, go out and celebrate the true meaning of today, accomplishing goals that nobody thinks are achievable even when you are outmatched and out gunned, so to speak, I think we can all apply that lesson in our lives.
I don't always drink beer but, when I do, I prefer Dos Equis thats why people call me the Most Interesting Man in the World.
