Default A glass of Tequila for Cinco de Mayo!

After my workout tonight, I will celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a nice glass of Don Julio 1942! It's never been a matter of significance in my family, and is looked upon as another reason to be festive!

I'm always amused by history and thought this version was quite interesting:

I like to observe Cinco de Mayo by drinking cerveza and laughing at the French Army.

I also like to observe Cuatro de Mayo, Tres de Mayo, Dos de Mayo, el Primero de Mayo, etc. by doing the same thing.

Similar tradition to Godfather; I do a shot of tequila and beat up France.

last time I drank tequila, it came right back up with suddenness... and glide.

I did write a Cinco de Mayo poem though! Here goes...

'Twas the Cinco de Mayo and all through España
Chiquitas wore fruit hats with lots of bananas
Sombreros were perched on men's foreheads with care
In hopes that their shadows would block out the glare.

The children were gathered to hit the piñatas
With visions of chilis and piña coladas
While mama and papa enjoyed the fiesta
The kids settled down for a daytime siesta

When out on the rancho arose such a clatter,
I dropped my maracas to see what was the matter
Away to the meadow I flew down the trail,
I reached for an udder and threw down a pail

The milk on the breast of the overfed cow
Fed hundreds of people and I don't know how,
When, what to my secular eyes should appear,
But a Catholic army inspiring fear.

With a little old leader, still only a kid-
I knew in a moment he must be El Cid.
More rapid than eagles his forces they came,
And he prayed to the saints and called them by name:

"Now Peter! Now Paul! Now, Mary and Anne!
St. James and St. Virgil! St. Elmo, St. Francis!
To the top of the hill! To the top of the plaza!
Now Ándale! Ándale! Arriba la Raza!"

As the armada fell to the British navy,
They sent some conquistadors over the sea
So out to the new world the vessels they sailed,
And in the name of España the armies prevailed.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard just by chance
Of Mexico's fall to Imperial France.
I was paying my taxes when I heard a strange sound,
And a masked man named Zorro came with a bound.

He was dressed all in black from his head to his foot,
And his sword was well-hidden by where it was put.
A bundle of pesos he had flung on his back,
And he went to the people to give them all back.

His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, caramba!
He was set to take back what was claimed by Columbus!
He had vengeful fires burning down in his soul,
And the moustache he wore was black as the coal.

The stump of a sword he held tight in his hand,
And the sheathe was attached to his leg by a band.
He had a broad stance and a trademark, you see,
He left his opponents with the mark of the Z.

He was lanky and tall, a right jolly hombre
And I graciously thanked him and told him my nombre.
A wink of his eye, like a crafty old vet-
He gave me a look I would not soon forget.

He spoke not a word but went straight to a trench,
And helped the republic get rid of the French.
And lifting his finger, his men to a halt,
And giving a nod to begin the assault-

He sprang to his feet, to his troops gave an order
And the people they freed from border to border
But I heard him exclaim 'ere he rode out of sight,
"Liberación to all, Mexico's free tonight!"

Que aproveche!

I don't touch the stuff anymore, but still derive pleasure from seeing others do so (like the old man in The Big Sleep). Enjoy.
