Sexiest Drinks To Order At A Bar
What you drink at a bar, says a lot about who you are as a person. It's strange to think about, but it is undeniably true. There is a specific clientele to each brand of alcohol, as well as what type. When I say vodka red bull, the first thing that comes to mind is a frat boy. Bud Light will always make me think of blue collar workers and country music. Red wine makes me think ‘mother of two’.
Legend of Frat Boy, Hobo & Housewife
It was St. Patrick’s Day and three best friends — Frat Boy, Hobo and Housewife — were out partying. After a few green drinks, they began to quarrel. Frat Boy claimed he could out drink Housewife.

Best Served Cold
She could tell he didn’t recognize her—his eyes, bleary with alcohol and the late hour, had a difficult time focusing on anything for more than a moment. And even if he was sober, she could tell they wouldn’t have looked above her chest.
You know I hate it when I can’t find anything. Well, let me correct myself. I hate it when I am desperately looking for something and it’s the 9th hour and I have procrastinated looking until the last minute. Often it is also when I was too lazy to put things where they belong so that if the need arises in the future, I wouldn't be in the situation I am in right now. What is that you ask? I am about to lose my damned job, well, that is if I don't lose my mind first. Somehow I lost that dark guide. What is that you ask? It is a little black book that contains a lot of valuable information. My boss keeps track of everything in that book. I keep it locked in his office in the safe that looks like a stack of books on the bookshelf and as of 3 hours ago, it was not there.
It's in the Blood
It was about 12 noon, I was riding my black horse; Catastros through an enormous maguey field. There were so many century plants, it went miles down. I was riding to my favorite tree where I was to meet my godfather. I was sweating so much that the breeze from riding felt so good. I was almost there when all of a sudden I heard a loud jarring noise and the earth started to split. Catastros whined and jumped and I fell immediately but I never make it to the ground... I wake up before that.

Struck by The Night
"Hey, Hennessey." "How are you doing, Korbel?" "I'm good. You going out tonight?" "Yeah. Me and my girl, Passion, going over to Club X-Rated for a few." "Why you ask; you going out?"
Observations on the Via Guadalajara
Cement and cinder blocks dot and bunch in lots alongside the Via Guadalajara. I am on a bus to the city, to get out of the noise of San Pancho, in Nayarit, Mexico, to celebrate a week of slow travel, and maybe to buy a custom motorcycle… we will see. It's an adventure.

My Home Bar
In August of 2019 we bought our first home. It was a stressful and long process that took us pretty much the whole summer to accomplish. After viewing so many houses we surprisingly ended up settling on a cozy 5-bedroom home on the outskirts of town. The price was right, and a benefit of this particular home was that it was next door to my husband’s friend from work, so we already knew we were going to like at least one of our neighbors.
