The Look Ahead: Nature Artifacts, Seafaring Adventures, and Fine Foods

Who’s ready for Tuesday? Well, it’s here whether we like it or not. As Dustin Lacquer would say, “There are 6 days in my week. I don’t need a day of rest. While you dread Mondays, I’ve eaten it for lunch with a side of Tuesday.” I’m not sure what that means, except that Tuesday should be treated as a finger food or a salad. Take it or leave it. It’s no Monday.
