My Lent

Tonight, I had my last margarita until August. And that sounds so sad. I won't lie, I, personally, fully and thoroughly enjoy tequila- and anything with tequila in it, i.e. the magnificent Margarita. And while I'm at it, the best Margarita in all of metro D.C. Area is right in my neighborhood - the Taqueria Poblano ( None better. Take my word for it. Ok. Back to me.

Folks who know me, know I enjoy a few things in life: funky expensive shoes, nice bed sheets, more than a few t-shirts, and good tequila. Look, everyone has their vices. These are mine. Our linen closet is stuffed with multiple bed sheets, all of which coordinate with each other, making endless combinations thru out the season: flannel for fall/ winter and percale for spring/summer. I have a shoe rack that runs the height of my closet filled with high-priced "comfortable but stylish" loafers and oxfords. I've got so many t shirts, Liz made me a surprise quilt from some of them without permission one Christmas (!). And I have over twenty bottles of tequila and mezcal in the house.

According to Wikipedia (and who doesn't believe everything they read on the internet): "The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, doing penance, repentance of sins, alms giving, atonement, and self-denial". And so this is my Lent of 2017. But instead of 40 days and 40 nights, we're talking a full 20 weeks! Gawd. Here's to August! Salud!
