My own little timeout in a glass, a strawberry basil mojito from Lazy Dog Cafe. It’s amazing what a good cocktail can do. It can block out the fact that your 4 year old just crawled under the table to squeeze between you and your 12 year old in what was previously a very comfy booth. Cozy. Another sip…and that sweet little concoction just erased the fact that the 4 year old and the 12 year old are now fighting and punching each other. Who thought that an 8 year span would make things easier? Never mind, another pull…and that tasty drink just shut out the complaining cries of the 7 week old baby that is pissed because he’s been in his carrier for too long because the server is taking her sweet-ass time scooping out some ice cream and slicing a banana for my damn birthday dessert.
Deep breath…final swig….ahhhhhh, Happy Birthday to me.
