Dumb Moment of the Day

I was walking past City Hall this afternoon, on my way to lunch, when I noticed that the flags were flying at half-mast. This was puzzling, so I called Seanie and left the following voicemail:

"Hey Pumpkin, can you do me a favor? Can you Google why the flags are flying at half-mast today? Did someone die or something?"

Immediately after I hung up, I said, "...oh." I hadn't looked at a calendar that morning, so I had not realized today's date until that very moment.

Patriotic Duty FAIL.
