National Tequila Day
Tequila and I used to be friends.....good friends at that! We loved having shots together with friends. Multiple shots. Sometimes straight up by themselves. Sometimes with the lime wedge and the salt on my palm. One night........all that changed.
One night many many years ago I had more then my fair share of tequila. I had too much. That night Jose Cuervo and I broke up. Friends no more. I couldn't look his way, I couldn't stand his scent.......IT WAS OVER.
Years later, I was introduced to Señor Patron. He brought back some bad memories......it took a while......but then I tried him. He didn't smell like Jose, which was nice because he didn't send me running away with my hand over my mouth. We had a short romance, but I had to call it quits and let my friends take over and continue on with him.
Now a days I can drink silver tequila in mixed drinks, ONLY. There will never be another tequila shot in my future......never. I am fine with that. We had our years, we had a lot of good times, but that is my past and it will stay there.
Over the years, I have heard a LOT of tequila stories. Most of them ended badly. It seems that tequila is involved with most peoples "Worst Night Ever" drinking stories. I sure know he's guilty in at least one of mine. Do you have a "Worst Night Ever" drinking story? I'd love to hear it!
