I grew up celebrating Boxing Day. It was more festive for many, and public spaces were filled with the people who had had to work on Christmas day. Laughter was louder, movements more swift, it was a celebration of family, like Christmas, but it was also an opportunity to display oneself in public in ways which did not conform to the norms of work for the celebrants.
I’m working today, and then hoping to get some steals from post-Christmas clothing sales. My idea of retail up until now has been Amazon; I haven’t been inside a “real” store, other than those selling food, for months.
And tonight: Grilled Rhode Island herring, pan seared grey sole with black truffles, and linguine with black truffles.
Though, overall, it’d be nice too take to the streets and get loud.
