Break Some Windows Day!

You've had a hard day at work. Lots of yelling and unrequited lusting. And you got fired. You deserve a little "I Deserve A Little Something" time. So go over to the house that's been up for sale for two years and join the latchkey kids who show up every day in the house's backyard to idly toss rocks through the house's windows. After each of you sends a stone through a window, you can look over at the kids' dissatisfied faces and say, "Honestly, this is as good as it's gonna get so don't give up on it too soon. Let's throw a few more and see if we light any fires in our bellies huh?"

You and the latchkey kids will break a bunch more windows then the latchkey kids will ask you to buy them some ice cream. Say, "No. I gotta save my money. I got fired today." One of the latchkey kids will say, "My Dad used to get fired a lot. Then he left us."

Happy Break Some Windows Day!
