The pause that refreshes.....
Today the sun was shining bright and clear and being Wednesday was cause enough to celebrate the hump day.
Being a little cold sitting in the sun kind of warms up the bones, but a direct cause of warm bones makes the throat parched.
I usually am not a big beer drinker, actually if I have a dozen beers in the a dozen months that's about my normal quota.
I would be considered a teetotaler by local standards, as I see cases of Indio or Corona being balanced on shoulders of professionals floating out in the parking lot from Soriana..... I consider myself lucky.
I only have one requirement that most sippers here don't have.
I demand that my beverages be close to becoming solid form as much as possible.
My compulsive obsessive behavior was inoculated years ago when I visited Tahiti for a vacation.
As the airplane door opened and it felt like a oven in the tropics.
The resort that we stayed at only had AC power for about 4 hours a day.
Most drinks including Coca Cola was served tepid.
I had to beg for a single sliver of ice.
It was one of the longest 7 days a week ever created.
Hot, Humid, Thirsty, no ice in sight.......
I need ice, cold cold cold drinks, even in winter.
That's my cross to bear.
Now you know one of the reasons I am here and not in Acapulco.
