Americans Celebrate National Taco Day; I Suffer Immensely

Yeah, you tell them, Red!

There is nothing more depressing for this blogger than National Taco Day, when everyone – and their abuela – take to social media to share what they think are … tacos.

Sunday is National Taco Day and the Augusta Police Department is on it
