When they find out that I work only one day a week, people often ask me ‘What the sweet hell do you do all day?’ The answer I give them is usually ‘Oh, you know. A bit of this, a bit of that’ which is just code for reading and looking at shit on the internet. I don’t mind this life. Sure, more money would be nice but there will come a time when I’m thrust back out into the grown-up world and I’ll be working full-time in a job that destroys my soul, one mind-numbing day at a time, until I can retire on a pension because Lord knows any talk of superannuation puts me to sleep. So for now, reading and looking up shit on the internet is pretty damn good.
During one of these internet binges, I happened across one of Kristin's pins on Pinterest: a delicious-looking lime sorbet tequila-type margarita. Ooh, that looks tasty, I said to myself, and promptly forgot about it. Until today.
The weather is crap. It was 27 degrees just before midnight and when I had to go and have my passport photo taken (because who doesn’t renew their passport until just over three weeks before their departure date, I ask you?), the humidity made my hair stick to the back of the neck and my makeup slide off my face. Now, after a quick torrential downpour, we’ve gale-force winds. This weather is conducive for precisely bugger all, except for making lime sorbet tequila-type margaritas so that is exactly what I did.
YUM. I generally have quite a strong dislike for tequila on its own because it’s so friggen vile, but mixed in with the lime sorbet, it was the perfect treat … at 1.45 Monday afternoon. I’m going back now to make another one because who knows at what other stage in my life I’ll be able to drink lime sorbet tequila-type margaritas at 1.45 Monday afternoon?
