Celebrating Cinco De Mayo: Now, Wait A Minute!

How is everybody? I know it's only Tuesday, but some of you might be already thinking of that happy hour coming up after work today. It's Cinco De Mayo today and these Coronas are looking awfully good. But our TMM producer Arwa Gunja might not quite agree with you. Arwa, break it down...

Monika, it's May 5. And if you remember my commentary from a year ago, my feelings about this supposed celebration of Mexico's Independence (Cinco de Mayo) have not changed. If you missed it, you can check out below (even if you are sipping on your Corona while you listen)

Thank you, Arwa! Now, it's your turn! What do you think about Cinco De Mayo?

And before signing off, I wanted to let you know we have a really interesting blog coming up today about breastfeeding. So, stay tuned and don't miss out.

Blog to you soon.
