Gotta love how smart these grandkids are today!!

I was eating breakfast with my 10-year-old Granddaughter
and I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?”.

Without skipping a beat, she said, “It’s President’s Day!”.

She’s smart, so I asked her “What does President’s Day mean?”.

I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln, etc.

She replied, “President’s Day is when President Biden steps
out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow, we have
4 more years of Bull Shit.”

You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.
