I mean, it’s a weird year for Independence Day on every level, even if it was something I was invested in. Last year we had a barbecue, I made a playlist with songs about places in the US (it’s much harder to find good songs for some states than for others), and it we enjoyed the sun. I added to the playlist it over the past year; I Am America by Shea Diamond is a current favourite, but lockdown plus greys skies mean no barbecue even if the mood lent itself.
On the other hand, Hamilton is on Disney, and we are only human. So I’ve made shredded beef in the slow cooker, and (hopefully) tortillas, and we have beer from out local, so that’s us sorted for the evening.
