If The Founding Fathers Had Smart Phones..

I’ve been making lemon curd today. The house smells lovely.

I keep the recipe in a note on my phone. I keep a lot of recipes on my phone because they’re easy to access.

I keep notes on future blog posts,  shopping lists, book lists – there’s no end of uses for the notes app!

Whilst I was endlessly stirring the lemon curd, I started thinking about the Declaration of Independence – As you do. Logical really..

Have you ever read it, it’s an amazing document. Those founding fathers sure knew how to write rights!

I pictured them sat there, scrivening notes with a quill by candlelight. It makes their polished delivery all the more potent when you picture the restraints they wrote under. The same with the Star Spangled Banner. I’ve yet to hear that without tearing up. Somehow I don’t think I ever will..

But back to the Declaration of Independence. I wondered how the Founding Fathers would have managed with smartphones and who exactly they’d be liberating us from today. I’m sure they’d have half a dozen notes, I wonder if these would have been some..

The Declaration of Co Dependence – if it’s alright with you..

John Adams: *ahem* We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal…

Thomas Jefferson: Nope can’t have it. The bitches will be all up in our grill. Some are more equal than others but y’cant say that because ‘political correctness’ Jeez. It was much easier in 1776! What the fuck have you idiots done with our country?!

Benjamin Franklin: where were we? Oh yes… all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

John Adams: Crap. There you go with that men thing again. Some of us are women and don’t forget the ‘I identify as a Unicorn’ crowd. Can’t have the right to Life anymore either. Cuomo saw to that.

Thomas Jefferson: Guys Please!! – Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government

Benjamin Franklin: Yeah good luck with that! Career politicians have worked out a great deal now. Give enough idiots freebies that they can’t afford not to vote for you. Welfare was supposed to help people. All it’s done is create a cage they can’t escape – bloody brilliant eh?

On second thoughts, I’m glad the Founding Fathers wrote without today’s ‘traps’!!

    1. Lemon curd is lovely in lots of things. I’ll put in in i cream as a ripple or make jam tarts. I’ve made lemon bread pudding yesterday and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd and buttercream today. It’s good on toast, scones or biscuits. I use it in layer cakes. There’s tons of things to do with it before you get to eating it out of the jar with a spoon!
