The vacation is still ticking people!!! WOOHOOO!!! Can’t believe I have over 2 whole weeks left of relaxation and freedom and free thinking. I swear I haven’t been this relaxed in AGES!!! We are on Day 5 and it was AMAZEBALLS!!!!! Whenever I am with my family, there is no adventure going on. There is a whole lot of eating, drinking and trying to meet up with ALL the old friends. Yesterday I didn’t meet up with anyone BUT we did have a grand old time eating and drinking… A lot.
The day started with breaking the toilet. That was a really shitty situation… no pun intended. HAHAHAHA!!! I tried to fix it but apparently I wasn’t doing too hot of a job so mom had to step in with the big guns and fix it. Nothing like blue poopy water to start the day off right. After everything was cleaned, disinfected, washed, bleached, lysoled, scrubbed, and disinfected again; everyone had to shower because you can’t do anything after dealing that shit. Everyone got cleaned up and had apparently worked up an appetite because bacon is cooking in the oven, coffee is in the coffee pot and potatoes are being fried on the stove. Mom is prancing through the house with her high heels on. This is what she does when no one is home. She cleans and cooks with the music blasting and wearing the highest heels that she owns. Kool n the Gang is blasting through the TV and then she changed it to Pit Bull. **Face Palm** I wish I would have taken pictures because there was a lot of dancing and singing involved.
Me, my mom, and Aunt sat around for a few hours trying to figure out what to do for the day. I had to return my rental car but other than that… the day was free. Mom followed me to the airport to return the car and then we got the bright idea to have our own little three person house party. WINNING!!!! We stopped at a tiny Spanish market and loaded up on all the Corn on the Cob, avocados, Mexican cheese and and a lot of other goodies. We had 6 bags of food and only spent 30 dollars. SAY WHAT!!?!?!?!?? That would have been AT LEAST 150 dollars worth of stuff in NYC. Moving on!!!! We left the market and headed to the liquor store. We bought bourbon, tequila, beer and all the makings for AWESOME margaritas and micheladas.
We unload everything and its “Khrys you are in charge” Uhhh ok. That means I am automatically in a zone because I have a visual of what I want to happen, how everything is going to look, and what its going to be. MOVE OUT THE WAY BETTY!!!! I set up shop and got to work. Corn was wrapped in foil and put in the oven, shrimp was soaking, and avocados were being chopped to make an awesome light salad. I mixed a quick lemon dressing to drizzle over the top. Then I prepped everything for the Elotes. MAAAAAN HOLD UP!!! HOLD…UUUUUUP! Lets take moment of praise for Elotes. **church faint**
Y’all. I found a recipe that would make you slap yo grandmama!!!! It was 1/4 cup of mayo.1/4 cup of cream. cilantro, squeeze of lime, two giant cloves of minced garlic, and the Mexican cheese mixed in(I didn’t measure that… because ITS CHEESE!!! There is never too much) LAWD LAWD LAWD!!!!! So while food is being prepared mom does what she does best… MAKES DRINKS!!!! She’s mixing up margaritas, my aunt Esther is laughing at all of the madness and we are ALL enjoying ourselves because ITS FRIDAY and thats what you do on vacation!!!! I seasoned the shrimp and just sautéed them in a pan. The salad was ready and the corn was ready for assembly. We grabbed our plates, our drinks and moved to the table to DEMOLISH the blessings that had been laid before us. We ate.it.all.
The drinks were strong and the food was good. There was nothing but jokes, laughter and happiness. My cousin Corey came over to hang out for a bit and that was NON STOP FOOLERY right there. My cousin is a NUT!!!! I actually laid on the kitchen floor at one point because I was laughing that hard. When he left, we were bored again but mom had the bright idea to play card games. Weeeelllll my parents don’t have that type of house where people go to play games and hang out. We piled into my aunts car and went to Walgreens and loaded up on Uno, Password, and some other kind of goofy game. We left Walgreens and headed to Daisy’s snow cone because I HAD to have a snow cone. I got the massive one and I ATE IT ALL!!!! We got back home and are LOCKED OUT!!! None of us had keys to the garage door or front door. Well damn it!!! Spartan training came into play because I had to scale my parents window to climb and open the fence. I was able to use my credit card to pop the bottom lock on the back door but couldn’t budge the top lock. Well mom found a key and said “Lets see if this works.” 5 minutes later she opens the front door from the inside and is like “THANK GOD!!! From here on out NO ONE leaves this house without keys!!!!!” We got in, bras came off and pajamas were put on and more drinks were made. We sat around the kitchen table for two hours playing Uno and Password. My mom and aunt are HELLA COMPETITIVE!!! I NEVER saw it coming!!! Uno will turn you into a totally different person!!! LMBO!!! So anyway we quit uno to play Password and the hilarity continued. At one point I was like “Its green, it looks like a dinosaur but its not a dinosaur…” “My aunt screams out “UNICORN!!!” **Blank stare** “Esther that looks like a horse not a dinosaur.” Then out of nowhere my mom goes “Oooh oooh a dinocorn!!!!” **blank stare** WHAT THE FUCK IS A DINOCORN?!?!?!?! I could NOT stop laughing!!!! I was like “It breathes fire!!!!” and my aunt was able to yell “DRAGON!!!!” “Y’all I’m the wrong person to be giving out clues or maybe I am the right person because I was coming up with all kinds of stuff “”They say you cant turn this person into a housewife” “A HOE!!!!” “Something that Uncle Allon always had” “JOINT”
Yesterday was a day of non stop laughter. It was a day of what I really needed. It was a day of family time. Just hanging out and being stupid. 3 introverts having the time of their lives eating, drinking and playing stupid card and word games. Its all I needed for a great day!!!
