Margaritas and Marketing

Today is National Margarita Day.  If I didn’t know that on my own, I’d surely have figured it out by the sheer number of social media updates, banners on restaurants and radio banter.  I don’t generally drink margaritas.  They’re up on the list with orange juice on the acidic no no scale.  When I was younger, I’d pop a few Tums, deal with any cankers I might acquire for indulging and plunge right in.  No more.

But that doesn’t mean I won’t celebrate in my own way.  I’m just not buying into a national day designed to sell more of something phenomenon.  I march to the beat of my own drum, and I’ll toast the margarita drinkers with a rum drink or beer.  Cheers!
