Le 14 Juillet
Today is the 14th of July or as they say in France--la baguette eiffel escargot. On this day in 1789 the French people broke into the draconian Bastille Prison to free its inmates--all seven of them--and in doing so started a movement that freed themselves from royalty, gold furniture and white powdered wigs.
In honor of French freedom and independence, today I will eat cake. Long live Liberté, Egalité and Fraternité!
Happy Bastille Day!
