So I had an amazing set of plans for Cinco de Mayo weekend that involved doing laundry, drinking at home, giving the dogs a bath and posting a fake status on FB solely because I’m an immature bitch and know that TD checks my status updates. 😡 Yeah, I guess maturity has absolutely nothing to do with chronological age. Duh. Anyway, I was a-ok not having any major plans for Cinco De Mayo as I kinda rank that up there along with New Year’s Eve and St. Patrick’s Day as far as ‘amature hours’ go. No need to go drink in public and take a chance of some random tool throwing up on me. As luck would have it though, I got a case of ants in my pants and called a friend that happens to live within walking distance of a mexican restaurant with a fairly decent bar. Hey, it’s only responsible to walk to a bar when your sole intention is to see how many free shots you can get sent, right? Anyway, we got there around 7, had a bite to eat and then ordered some drinks. Followed shortly by my brilliant idea to do shots of chilled Patron Silver. Now I am by no means a fan of tequila shots (especially when not actually in Mexico), but I gotta tell you, that stuff was nice. I didn’t even need the lime chaser. Impressive. Not. So we’re at the bar laughing and having a good time when 2 more shots get put in front of us. Score! A nice older gentleman named John apparently had a bunch of money burning a hole in his pocket as he sent probably 10 shots to random people. Thanks John! And then he sent another round. And another. And because I’m an idiot and forgot that although I used to be able to drink my college football team under the table, college was a loooong time ago and I no longer do shots. Much less 4.
I don’t remember a lot of the rest of the evening other than knowing that my friend and I made it home safely and that I neither threw up on anyone nor was I thrown up on by anyone. I did forget the cardinal rule of thumb when drinking WAY past your limit of being sure to eat something before bed. Being sure to drink a lot of water before bed. Being sure to take aspirin before bed. I did none of these things and paid for it all day yesterday. So in addition to being on the wagon for most of this week it has been decided that while Cinco De Mayo was kinda fun, it best be left to the younger set as Seis De Mayo kinda really sucked!
