Aww yeah, burritos and margaritas in the house!
My friend Tony and I ventured out to Mad Mex after our volleyball game tonight in order to catch up, use one of my remaining birthday offers, and celebrate our win tonight. As of tonight, we’re tied for first place in our league, though technically, the team we’re tied with took 2 of 3 games from us… so if you look at it that way, we’re in 2nd place; just with the same record. But still, that’s a strong season, and we had a great night tonight!
So yeah, we celebrated with some burritos and margaritas. I went seasonal for both my drink and my dinner – I got the orange pineapple margarita on the rocks (“This doesn’t even taste like it has alcohol in it,” I slurred) and the grilled chicken and asparagus burrito. Both were good, but I think I was most surprised by the burrito. It included both asparagus and peas, and we all know how I’ve historically felt about peas… but it was actually really good. It helped that the peas were crunchy and not at all mushy. A heck of a lot of cheese (monterey jack and goat) helped, too. 🙂
We spent a few hours hanging out and catching up while stealing glances at the Pens game on TV. Eventually, though, I had to leave to get ready for my overnight on-call shift. Going back to what I said on Monday, sometimes it feels really good to not be responsible for a few hours. Between volleyball and dinner, I feel ready to jump back into the grind for one more work day and a weekend full of action.
Happy almost-Friday, friends. It couldn’t have come soon enough.
