December 2, 2013: Hit me with those fritters one more time! Today is Britney Spears’ Birthday — she’s now reached the ripe old age of 32. And she’s already lived several lifetimes’ worth of crazy. it’s also Fritters Day, and I’m pretty sure that I’ve never eaten a fritter. I don’t think I’d ever really heard of them until I moved to the south. There seem to be two kinds of fritters — fried dough balls, and smashed flat hashbrown-ish things. Either way, I’m sure Brit would get a bag of them to-go, being a good southern girl as she is. It’s also one of the two National Mutt Day celebrations (the other one being July 31) — they’re championed by the same organization, to give mixed-breed shelter dogs two big pushes per year instead of just one.
