Daiquiri


Echo is over at his site whining like a fraidy cat that he may be an alcoholic because he once ordered daiquiri flavored sorbet. Boo hoo. I should have him spend an evening with my mother. Then he'll know what real drinking is all about.

Anyway, his sad little story reminded me of how my sister-in-law once came over to visit. I said to her, "Ruby, would you like something to drink?" Her response was "yeah . . . you got any daiquiris?"

As if I had daiquiris just sitting around in case some boozy dame came in to order one.

Funny thing is, I opened the fridge and did indeed have a carton of strawberries. Seeing as how I usually have a fully stocked bar otherwise, I was actually able to make Ruby a pitcher of daiquiris.

Ruby, not being much of a drinker, now thinks it's perfectly normal behavior to order some fancy drink when she goes a-calling. She's going to be sadly mistaken if she pulls that shit anywhere else though, because I don't think most people can just haul out & make a fresh strawberry daiquiri on a moment's notice.

But CP ain't most people. Best not forget that.

I just wanted to add that:
CP ain't most people.

As I'm close to the 20s in beers tonight, I recommend Echo be forced to spend a Friday night with me (naturally, a taxi is included)

Great stuff folks. Ordering a strawberry daiquiri does'nt make you an alcohol, it just makes you fruity.

Echo said...

I can't help it. They're tastey. Sure, I like the bitters of a good beer or stout. And don't get me near a pitcher of margaritas or you won't get any. I've been known to down Guinness, Potato Juice, and good Scotch. But let's face it folks. For taste, there's nothing like a good berry beverage - potato juice or no. I'm not embarassed about it. Not in the least.

Okay. Just a little bit. Ketel One, anyone?

Lu: we are lonely without you. Now that I know you're safe in your hotel, I have a party in store for you.

Jin: you have a brilliant cyberstalking mind and I'm glad you are learning my trade. Will you teach me to make fancy cake frosting?

Creepy: funny you should mention it. I've already figured out Echo's true identity including name, address, multiple phone #'s, SS# and thong size. I'd be glad to send you all of the above if you'd like to contact him.

Echo: it sounds like you're making progress on your shame issues. That's too bad.

Echo said...

Cp, that's just great. So, you now have the name, addr, phone, SS and thong size of a fictional character...how MUCH did you drink last night???

Do not underestimate my awesome powers.

Echo said...

You don't know the power of the dark side...

Hey Jin, perhaps you can concoct a strawberry daquiri cake for the CP! Even better if you can make a cat jump out of it.

Ruby never invites me to her home for dinner, although she has come over to our place for many evenings of libation and nutrition. I think when she finally invites me to have something to eat I will ask "Ummm, do you have any Beef Wellington?"...
