a time to grow

"i haven't seen you girls in such a long time. i'm so glad we were able to meet up and celebrate cc's birthday."

"yeah and nothing says 'happy birthday' better than a yummy margarita. i think i'll have another one of these babies."

"dude, i've been in the dungeon too long. i haven't been out dancing in forever and i don't even remember the last time i had something with tequila in it."

"well nobody asked you to order the one with three different kinds of tequila in it, crazy."

"what? that's one of the drinks the waitress recommended! ray, you're the one who asked her opinion in the first place."

"that's only because i don't know what half this stuff is. you tell her what we're ordering; i always pronounce this stuff wrong."

"um, yeah. i think this drink is it for me tonight. i might not be able to even finish all this."

"cadiz! you cannot be telling me that your first drink is your last drink of the night. oh, grow some tits and suck it down."



happy birthday, cc. i hope i'll always have you to look to in mock horror when ray says something appalling.

Wow. I never realized there was a female-oriented equivalent to the "grow some" remark. Not that I'd use it (not my style) but it's still... interesting.

Even more interesting: a tequila X 3 drink. What was that called, exactly? Because that one I might use.

(I admit to being a little worried about your streak when I didn't see a Sunday post by late evening. Whew!)

Oh, that stuff is deadly. You're smart to just keep the chabookas you have and not end up being tequila poisoned!

it was called the "3 Grand" at Blue Agave restaurant near Rush and Division streets in Chicago.

yeah, i barely made it! the place i'm staying has wi-fi, but it's SO DAMN SLOW. i was sweating, with 6 min to go it was still "processing." i'll be more on top of it during hte week when i'm in the dungeon. but you know i made a commitment, so i would have to phone it in or something.

oh jas, i can just HEAR you saying it! my friend ray has this way of saying something outrageous without offending. it's a gift.

yeah, i'm pretty satisfied with my chabookas and i ended up finishing that drink and having a little bit of a strawberry one, but it ended up making me feel sort of sick. but i danced it off and drank water all night, so it was all good.

incorporating the phrase into my daily vernacular...

(trying it out for the first time)

doesn't really work on the pops... hmmm... my sister will totally love it, though, so i feel a thanksgiving phrase-du-jour in the making!

Like RaJ, I didn't know there was a female equivalent. It's one of those that doesn't flow well off the tongue of a guy, so I'll try it with caution.

Ha, I enjoy appalling remarks :-D

Andy said...

That remark is gold, i must say. But i never did think that a measure of a womans chutzpah was reliant on those...

I like the remark. I may have to use that one at work when someone is whining about being out late...

Well, only to the ones that can take a joke, and wouldn't rush to HR. :-)
