Today is Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. One wonders how amazing Mexico would be if it was run by the French.
Anyhoo, the reason I’m posting this – besides the obligatory Salma Hayek photo – is most of my coworkers are really pissed off they can’t go out and get hammered at a bar this evening. They’re younger and have a better tolerance for alcohol, unlike this old timer.
The Wuhan virus lockdown has driven everyone crazy, and after two months with the kids home all day, every day, the missus and I decided it would be nice to have some alcohol in the house. I headed to the store and got the missus some Seagram’s drinks and a twelve-pack of Sierra Nevada beer for me.
It’s been a while since I had a beer. I had one at Christmas, and before that… I honestly don’t know. Months, easily. So after jumping back on the wagon – or off it, who remembers? – I realized my tolerance is very low. One beer had me nearly completely drunk, and I sipped most of it. It’ll be a while before I can have more than one a day, but it at least takes the edge off the screaming kids.
