Coming And Going.... Wondering Why I Do This To Myself

Driving back from San Antonio I was thinking I had at least a week and a half until we leave for Vegas. Wrong. I had once again gotten my days mixed up during an apparent seizure of *old farts disease*. It couldn't possibly have been from my severe hangover. No, not that. My San Antonio friend twisted my arm and made me drink copious amounts of tequila the night before I was making the 5-1/2 hour drive home. (By the way, thanks Sully!)

In the beginning, the tequila seemed ever so harmless disguised in Margaritas. Well, until we decided to take out the bottle of mescal tequila, anyway. She and a former boyfriend had once been down in old Mexico and wound up riding burros way up into the mountains where they knew of a man who made the best tequila in those parts. His place could not be accessed by car or SUV, at that time. They had each gotten 6 bottles, which they hauled back to the states with them. Over the years, she and the ex-boyfriend had consumed a couple of bottles, but the rest had remained in tact.

When they parted ways, my friend had forgotten that they still had it. Apparently, the ex had forgotten as well. When he was getting ready to move to a new house, he found the bottles. To make a long story short, he called me and I was the good friend who was taking them to San Antonio with me. That's how it ended up in my hands.

There have been many times I could turn down tequila. Yes, there have! However, the story of acquiring this tequila and the effects of said tequila has become almost a legend among our friends. My friend has always said that this tequila will not make you slobbering drunk, and that you never have a hangover from it. We had to break open a bottle. We tried not to, for 4 days. Then the urge to try it became so overwhelming that we eventually gave in. Okay, we were like two little kids talking one another into a dare. Okay, fine! I MADE her crack one open. After all, I was the one that took them to her, still in tact.

I'm pretty sure we had fun, but I'm not talking… I'm also pretty sure that we didn't use shot glasses, limes, or salt...

So, why did I have a hangover? I had a hangover because I mixed it with the Margaritas we'd drunk earlier. Mescal has to be consumed all by itself for this dubious outcome to work. Uh-Huh.

And I have no earthly idea which one of us got the worm. I'm trying to not think about it. Eeeeeeewww!

sounds like a fantastic time! The best nights are those that leave you feeling like hell the next day.

Mental P Mama said...

Ugh. I swore off tequila in college. I should have graduated cum laude for that decision;)

SJN said...

I get hung over enough on wine, and anything with a worm in it? NEVER! Glad you're safely back... only to be off again. CRS means can't remember s _ _ _ , that's what you've got!

The Incredible Woody said...

I would've loved to be around for that party!! So when IS Vegas?

TSannie said...

You are very very bad.

And I like that!

And I never did swear off tequila. Not in college or ever since...Yup!

noble pig said...

OMG that's hilarious. We used to hide the worm in one of five tacos and mix em' up...someone would get it! Ahhhhhh!

Nina Knox said...

Glad you're home safe. Now off to your next adventure. And remember, what happens in Vegas ---! But we all still want to hear about it when you get back. Have fun!

Seriously, mescal tequila gives you such a feeling of euphoria and many have believed in its medicinal properties (ahem... when used in moderation, of course) forever. It goes down like silk, unlike most tequilas that I would have to gag down. I will never be able to swear off mescal tequila. Or Margaritas. But, I'll never mix them again, for sure.

Leaving for Las Vegas on Thursday & our son is here for another visit with his dog until Wednesday. *sigh* He's in between semesters. So, getting ready is further disrupted.

OMG! Snooty! We are so gonna have to party!

Tammy and I have to do the tequila yell after each shot. It's great fun hearing how the yell 'evolves' after the first shot or two (or six)

And noblepig! Hiding the worm in a taco! Bwahahahaha! You are invited to the party too! Yeehaw!

asthmagirl said...

No tequila for this girl. And no regrets either. I'll cuddle up to the demon rum though!

Glad you had such a good time! So Vegas is soon?

Staci said...

Oh tequila! to-kill-ya! The evil one and I have had our run-ins. I still think a Margarita is the best drink ever made.

Glad you made it home!

Tequila hates me and is not my friend, although I have nothing against him/her.

It's been a long time since I've had a relationship with tequila!

I'm glad you're back, I've missed your posts.

Mescal tequila -- not sure if I've ever tried that. Is it anything like Patron... because me and Patron, we're like "this".

Snooty Primadona said...

Tammy: You'd definitely get to be friends with mescal. However, you might not remember it, lol.
