Hi all! I wish I had something witty or thought provoking today but I'm in the midst of packing and dealing with all the fun things associated with a move across a couple states so... I'm just gonna wish you all a Happy Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to what some people believe, this is not Mexico's Independence Day. Short history lesson: France and Mexico were at war over a financial dispute so the French invaded Mexico. They were doing okay until they hit Puebla. On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the much larger, stronger French army. The war still wouldn't end for another four or five years but the Battle of Puebla was a big deal. End history lesson.
It's more of a regional thing in Mexico, but apparently Americans don't need an excuse to throw back a bunch of margaritas ;) I'll be enjoying coffee with my mom after work today (yes, I know I'm a wild one) but if you go out tonight, have fun!! Oh, and a little less than a decade ago I was a bartender and margaritas are a pain in the butt to make so show your bartender some love tonight! (and no, I don't mean that in a dirty way)
