It’s been a while since I’ve had a good cry.
Without going into too much detail this morning my mom and I had a little spat. It transpired, somewhere in-between brewing a pot of coffee, checking my email, and working out. Seems like it’s all a blur now.
I managed to hold it in most of the morning, up until I got in the shower, where I proceeded to let my frustration out as I
cried balled, like Ted after reuniting Mary with Brett Favre in There’s Something About Mary. I really love my mother more than words can describe. But, I will be the first to admit she can really be a bit much to handle.
I think the burst of fury was mainly due to the fact that she needs a breath of fresh air —I know she misses Mexico. Now that she has recuperated from her surgery; I’ve noticed a bit more resentment, complaining, and an increased amount of sourpussness. Which all happen to be in her case, tell-tell signs that she needs to go spend some time with her brothers, sister, and girlfriends back in Mexico.
So for her sake and mine we both decided it was time for her to take a little “vacation” to give us both a little breath of fresh air…
I’ve been missing my spark for a while and hope I’m able to get it back quickly. I think this cocktail is a good start don’t you? Made with fresh cantaloupe which has been diced and frozen then blended with a few key ingredients, it’s bound to help anyone get their mojo back!
Here’s to a breath of fresh air, and a fresh blogging start…
- 1 cup frozen cantaloupe
- 3 ounces watermelon pucker
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- lime wedges for garnish (optional)
- skewered cantaloupe scoops for garnish (optional)
- Blend all ingredient together and serve in martini glasses.
- Garnish with a wedge of lime and/or cantaloupe chunks on a skewer.
