Happy President’s Day!
Since we don’t have the day off, some enterprising coworkers of mine decided to make the day fun and have a presidential potluck. Basically, we had a potluck lunch and voted on our favorite U.S. Presidents. Our results were:
- Abraham Lincoln
- Bill Clinton
- Thomas Jefferson
We spent a while talking about the merits of past presidents, including Taft (stuck in a bathtub), van Buren (first president born on American soil), Monroe (the Monroe doctrine), JFK (handled the Cuban missle crisis), and Truman (a man who stood by tough moral decisions). Not to make light of our important history, but these were some impressive dudes. I bantered with a coworker about her favorite, but I truly believe that no matter who my coworkers voted for, they couldn’t have made a poor choice – all of these men led our country and deserve our respect. I feel really proud and American – and I’m proud of my coworkers for taking the time to network with each other and be dorks and learn something, too :).
