Yesterday was my birthday, and I was terribly sick. Having worked at the cafe a little bit on the weekend, then all day on Monday after only sleeping for a few hours, waking up on Tuesday I was miserable. Luckily, my boss is a cool and understandable woman and I was able to stay home and sleep. And sleep I did. Till about 3 in the afternoon. At which point, I woke up, ate condensed soup (ick!) and watched a lame movie from Netflix.
But you know what makes a girl feel really special when she's sick as a dog on her birthday? When her friends insist on taking her out for spicy food to clear her sinuses and margaritas to sooth her sore throat.
This was the best of the three I consumed last night at Zocalo in West Philly. The ginger margarita is traditional, white tequila and lime with a ginger twist, not overwhelming, but just potent enough to make your lips tingle. Loved it. And loved my friends for taking me out despite my runny nose and watery eyes.
