Hopefully Humorous (and sometimes R-rated) Musings About Life

I’m Craving Mexican Tonight

1 Comment

Today I felt a strange weariness. Civil unrest across the world has me plain tuckered out, I’m not #winning, and I don’t particularly have a fondness for goddesses/porn stars.

But then, I was forwarded a New York Times editorial – The Tire Iron and the Tamale – by Justin Horner.

And suddenly, someone was #winning (Justin, I think your luck is changing), goddesses disguised as mere mortals were delivering help and tamales to stranded/starving motorists, and civility to other humans was a necessity, not a novelty. I was inspired.

Tonight, more observantly religious individuals (than me) are celebrating Shrove Tuesday with the requisite pancake dinner. They are getting ready for a time of reflection, contrition and humility as they prepare for Easter.

Inspired by the story I had read, I decided that the Rice family would celebrate with a meal of chicken fajitas, replacing pancakes with tortillas.

I’m amazed by humankind(ness). And feel like if we look hard enough, people are #winning.
