But then, I was forwarded a New York Times editorial – The Tire Iron and the Tamale – by Justin Horner.
And suddenly, someone was #winning (Justin, I think your luck is changing), goddesses disguised as mere mortals were delivering help and tamales to stranded/starving motorists, and civility to other humans was a necessity, not a novelty. I was inspired.
Tonight, more observantly religious individuals (than me) are celebrating Shrove Tuesday with the requisite pancake dinner. They are getting ready for a time of reflection, contrition and humility as they prepare for Easter.
Inspired by the story I had read, I decided that the Rice family would celebrate with a meal of chicken fajitas, replacing pancakes with tortillas.
I’m amazed by humankind(ness). And feel like if we look hard enough, people are #winning.
