  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Spring Break in November by watercub on 4 December 2003 9:50am
HELLOOOO I'm back! Forgive the shouting, but I'm not sure my trip has worn off yet! Many vacation tales to tell (it was a very eventful trip) but I am way too wiped out at the moment to do anything other than read...(That along with the fact I think I drank too many mariachis and sang too many margaritas.)Have not had a trip like that since college...not sure if that's good or bad...

Some things I did learn (or relearned, just not sure) while in Florida:

1. oysters float in beer, but not tequila
2. do NOT drink tequila with oysters sunk in it
3. there is a secret entrance to disney world (really)
4. 90% of men on the beach WILL let you paint their toenails pink if you ask nicely enough (sorry guys)
5. Reindeer antlers get droopy in ocean water
6. Jimmy Buffett is apparently EVERYONE's best friend
7. It is HARD to drink daquiris through a Hemingway beard
8. Hemingway beards itch and look weird on me (but they look weirder on my friend Tara)
9. Last Hemingway...The Sun Also Rises reads wonderfully on the beach, but so does Hemingway's Chair!

Perhaps more to come when I recall...or when I make more sense of things...glad to be back!

Hugs and kisses!

is it the foam in the beer that keeps oysters afloat?
re: the toenails. I painted my husband's toenails metallic gold on our first date. Guys will do anything for the attention of a purty lass. (and I've done some foolish things for the attention of a handsome lad)
ugh. don't remind me.
