Hump Day Happy

One time when I was traveling on business, I had a two-hour layover in Philadelphia. It was exciting to be in the birthplace of the U.S., and I wished I could actually explore the city instead of only passing through its airport.

As compensation, I visited an airport gift shop and bought the charm you see hanging off the HDH book to add to my charm necklace: the Liberty Bell. On this day, July 8, in 1835, the Liberty Bell cracked again. I love the bell's history, and personally, I've always found a significant lesson in the fact that something considered "flawed" is one of our country's most recognizable and beloved symbols.

That's all I'll say about that. If you want something to be happy about, please comment with a page number between 1 and 611, and another number between 1 and 25, and I'll tell you what the 14,000 Things To Be Happy About book has to offer you.


P.S. I timed this to post at 04:05:06 a.m. on 07.08.09. Thanks, Rob.
