Last night we went out to eat, a treat from my brother-in-law in honor of Son’s birthday. It had been a long week, so Hubby suggested I have a drink. I was way ahead of him, and ordered a martini sampler: Guavatini, Lemondrop, and Chocolatini. Look, I know those aren’t “real” martinis, ok? But a beer wasn’t going to cut it and I wanted sugar to be my alcohol carrier.
Aren’t they adorable?? And smashing. No, really. You can get smashed on one order alone.
Anyway, Son was interested in trying them. Hilarity ensued.
Son: Mom, what’s the dark one?
Me: That’s the chocolatini.
Son: The what?
Me: (enunciating slowly) Chocolate martini.
Son: May I try it?
Me: Sure. (Don’t y’all wish I was your mom??)
Son: (coughing and gagging) Ugh! It’s like chocolate alcohol!!
Me: That’s the POINT!!
Sometimes, this job is way too easy 😉

I’ve worked with quite a few guys who would consider that “Round One”. Usually partaken of in the barracks, before changing out of uniform and heading out for a night of drunken debauchery. Or, in the case of the designated driver, sober debauchery (and with the advent of digital cameras, blackmail opportunities).

We took a passed out buddy down to a local mega-mart and put him in the back of his truck on a matress without anything but a blanket and some quarters. And lots of blackmail material.
It becomes a bit crueler on a cold wet Saurday.

Those are totally cute.

The cuteness factor weighed heavily on my decision to order them 😉

I would have been very tempted myself. Shiny wins every time. 🙂
