Our Revolutionary Soldiers Were Badass

I did some sightseeing today. Specifically, I was at a Revolutionary War Museum. I was struck with how badass our early founders were. The soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War were volunteers, and they fought for seven years. No pay. No guarantee of food or water. No promise of a better life. No warm clothes in winter. No warm place to sleep. But they did it. They had beliefs and they had a drive to be free. I often wonder if our country could pull it off today. Would volunteers fight for our country again?

My Snoggler

Snoggle (verb) – to hog the bed under the guise of snuggling.

Snoggler (noun) – one who snoggles.

Is there a snoggler in your bed? Tell us about it.
