First of all, this is the first time that I have ever sat down to write this blog and been frustrated on how to start it. I usually just sit down and write, but not today. For whatever reason, tonight I am not enlightened with wordy wisdom.
Anyway, it’s Pina Colada Day. I was just sitting on the couch and I mentioned to my dad that it was Pina Colada day. He immediately goes and gets his shoes. I ask him where he’s going. He informs me that he’s going to get stuff to make pina coladas. He loves to celebrate. He promptly returned and made my mom and I pina coladas. He wanted me to come in the kitchen and cut up pineapple and make them all fancy and I really didn’t want to. It isn’t Cut Up the Most Difficult Fruit to Cut Day, it’s Pina Colada Day. I really just wanted one in a cup. No frills.
They were delicious. And strong. But that is to be expected from a drink my dad makes me.
In honor of Pina Colada Day I have had the song “If you like Pina Coladas” stuck in my head. And by in honor of, I really mean I knew what the holiday was when I woke up this morning and I’ve been singing it ever since.
I’m not incredibly familiar with the lyrics so I’ve basically been singing, “if you like pina coladas and getting stuck in the rain” over and over again. As it turns out, those aren’t the only lyrics.
It turns out that song is about a guy who is planning on responding to a personals ad in the paper, even though he’s married, and the lady from the personal ad is his wife! How cute? Right? I personally thinks it’s a little strange. Mainly due to the fact that the only requirements for this personal ad were the following:
1. A love of Pina Coladas.
2. Getting rained on.
3. Not into yoga.
4. Has half a brain.
5. Interested in scandalous escapades on the beach at exactly midnight.
She has the highest of high standards.
Also not into yoga.
