Why are Memorial Day BBQs a thing?

  1. There is a 50% chance of rain (every year)
  2. I'm not ready to be in a bathing suit, are you?
  3. Are you going to ask me to swim in your pool 10 times?
    ...refer to the previous bullet
  4. What should I bring? Oh pasta salad? Everyone always brings pasta salad
  5. You have to watch mayo side dishes sit in the sun (gross)
  6. You just want to enjoy your first 3 day weekend from work since winter
  7. I'm not ready for you to see my white untanned legs who haven't seen the sun since labor day
  8. I haven't bought my summer wardrobe yet
  9. ....I'll see you for July 4th instead
