The Lonely Dos Equis....

Thursday, May 02, 2013

We're not big beer drinkers. My husband's preferred cocktail is a gin and tonic, while I generally opt for a glass of red wine or a vodka tonic. Of course, alcohol consumption at our house has plummeted since we've become SparkPeople (we rarely want to spend our calories on a drink), but I digress....

There's a lonely bottle of Dos Equis beer that has been in the refrigerator since sometime in March, before we became Sparkers. Its brothers consumed long ago, it sits there waiting for its turn, then waits some more as the days and weeks pass. Meanwhile, the rest of its neighbors on the refrigerator shelf are pulled out one by one and eaten, only to be replaced by a new box of strawberries, a new tub of Chobani yogurt, or another sensible food item that one is proud to list on her Nutrition Tracker.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up in a few days, the lonely little Dos Equis may finally get its chance to be opened and enjoyed. But the odds are good that my husband and I will split the beer over dinner and not buy any more for a long time.

All in all, I see it as a win-win. The Dos Equis will get its moment of glory, and I get a little more refrigerator space back.

Stay sparking, my friends!

    If the Dos Equis remains lone and forlorn, perhaps he can befriend destiny and be quaffed down with lobster?

    It's ok to splurge once in awhile, love an ice cold beer, savor it and enjoy!

    Like you, I'm unwilling to "waste" my calories on things I don't REALLY enjoy. Bid a fond farewell to that last Dos Equis as it rides off into the sunset....

    Cinco de Mayo seems like the appropriate occasion to take the lonely Dos Equis out of the refrigerator! Enjoy! emoticon
