Chalkboard Art: Unicorn Lattes

New York City streets are filled with a lot of things: people, dogs, trash, mysterious things you’re better off not knowing what they are…but my favorite things NYC sidewalks offer are Chalkboard Art.

I have ABSOLUTELY NO idea what unicorn tastes like.  I have no desire to live a half-life or a cursed one for that matter, so I consider unicorns to be on my “DO NOT EAT” list.  Those who actually know me know just how short that list is–I mean, after all I am not only willing, but love to eat Vegemite and Peeps (although not together–that would be gross!)

BUT if I were to imagine it, I would think that unicorns would taste like cotton candy or perhaps marshmallow.  They would NOT taste like mango and mostly certainly not with some sour sauce added to the mix.  For the record, this description was thankfully provided by a person who has asked to keep his/her identity a secret.  Also for the record, I solemnly swear it is not me, as the only colorful drinks I allow myself to drink have rum or tequila in them!  True story…oh, except for slushies….I do enjoy a nice cherry coke slushy from time to time.

But I digress.  Back to unicorns and coffee and the reason we’re here today: Chalkboard Art.  I think the Chalkboard Art below accurately sums up my thoughts about anything unicorn flavored that a certain coffee company might offer (and a big thanks to Camilla for sending it to me because she knows that I like my coffee as black as my soul!)

Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I feel like I should offer you a bit of history before the tequila starts flowing.  I mean, if you’re going to be celebrating, at least know what happened.

[side note: yes, I know that I’m interrupting a birthday trip but needs must, as I would feel neglectful if I didn’t mention it.  Okay, okay and I found a hilarious shirt I wanted to share with you (two actually–the other I posted on ShezzaSpeak).]

Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day (that’s September 16th).  May 5th aka Cinco de Mayo aka El Día de la Batalla de Puebla was an important victory by the Mexicans against French troops, who outnumbered the Mexicans 2:1.  It is said to be the start of the Mexican resistance to French rule in Mexico.

There’s more stuff, but I know that at this point, you’re trying to decide if you want to start with cerveza, progress to margaritas and end with tequila or just start with the inevitable?

History lesson over: go drink some tequila!
