have you ever seen anything so beautiful?
as soon as i saw snookie take down a minimum of three of these babies (mad respect to snookie) i knew i NEEDED to have one. pretty much all other margaritas became inferior to a giant bowl of tequila and cerveza with a squeeze of lime juice - except for the rose petal margarita at fiesta ole - but that stands alone.
|i love you.|
approximately five weeks ago, my mom (hi muz!) posted this little gem on her instagram (yay moms with instagram!) and the flickering embers of my long ago dream were re-ignited into a blazing inferno (no ghosts though).
please note that my comment says "my dream is to have one of those margaritas - hysterical sobbing emoji".
it was important that you all know the back story for this to work - i promise i'm getting to the point...
two weeks ago i met up with nid (hi nid!) in alexandria, virgina - she was there for an SOA conference - either sons of anarchy or society of actuaries. it's the same thing really.
|risk is opportunity.|
whist in alexandria nid and i casually walked into los cuates with the intent to get wasted on margaritas. and eat dinner i guess. but mostly the margaritas. after perusing the margarita menu i noticed el grande margarita with add a corona in small print under it. i immediately needed to clarify with the bartender if it was indeed the fabled jersey shore margarita of my dreams - "a huge margarita with an upside down corona in it". at first the bartender was confused, so i described it again. i'm sure nid was really happy she wanted mexican at this point. eventually it was confirmed and my life-long (four years) dream came true.
|hysterical sobbing emoji.|
since i'm a hobo and can't afford booze anymore my tolerance is embarrassingly low. i was legit drunk after a third of my dream and nid had to shush me a bunch. i'm also pretty sure i cried a little. whoops! i couldn't feel my legs or face by the end. good thing our waiter/nid's biggest fan slipped us free shots of tequila AND mini margaritas at some point. MAS TEQUILA.
sometimes dreams come true children. usually the ones that are pretty readily available at finer mexican eateries/drinkeries. but still. my new dream is the double corona margarita because i like to dream big. it will be mine.
thank you nid for buying me a dream come true for $22.
i love you and i miss you.
love and sno-cones of regret,
