14 April is Grits Day

It is World Grits day. And apparently 14 April is the day to celebrate this delightful food made from mashed corn, and 'make this day beautiful and get down with people you know and love and have the time of your life'.

No people, you have it all wrong.

The real Grit is a down-beat, down-at-heel, grey-haired mother of triplets who survives (only just) by complaining, whining, finding fault and misery, and using heavy-duty sarcasm to illuminate the darkest of dark days.

About the only things that Grit shares in common with Grits day is that Grit is an acquired taste, and Grit walks about thinking that the whole world is wrong and Grit is right.
