Heard: The Fifth of July

I was in Longworth Cafeteria last week when I overheard two valley girls with red badges the table over. There was nothing out of the ordinary until the following exchange:

Intern 1: Is July 5th, like, a federal holiday?
Intern 2: Ummm. I don't think so.
Intern 1: Then, why do we have off?
Intern 2: Maybe it's because, like it was the first full day they really got to celebrate the Declaration of Independence.

I nearly choked on my lunch.
