Cinco de Mayo
Today is Mexican Independence Day. The only independence I see is the freedom to swill tequila like my friend N tonight! LOL! Tacos and Tequila. Lethal combo? For sure. Both can burn your stomach! We are celebrating the 5th on the 9th. Everyone is coming over and we are having enchiladas, quesadillas, sangria, and Coronas. If you think about it, nothing we are doing is really authentic. Americans have pretty much taken over traditions from other countries and made them ours. Our way or the highway, baby. All the same, Americans love an excuse to socialize, eat, and imbibe. What the hell...we just love to eat! And people wonder why this country is obese. It ought to be fun, tho. Women, screaming children, lotsa food, and a drink based on red wine and lots of it...and then the screaming children noise fades away...If you are celebrating this day...be safe and responsible. You owe it to yourself.
