Country music can be so funny. I used to be a huge country music fan among other things and then for years, hardly listened to music at all.... just from shit going on in our lives. Now I'm enjoying country music again.
Recently, Monday of last week on Cinco de Mayo, I made HM chicken enchiladas for supper. It had been years since I drank Tequila but since I've always loved Margaritas I decided to serve them with the meal.
GR was not yet home. I prepared the enchiladas, slid the pan in the oven and set the timer. Meanwhile I wanted to relax with a drink while watching the news so I began mixing a Margarita. Clearly, I am not always the sharpest knife in the drawer. I quickly, apparently too quickly, read the "Margarita mix to Tequila" ratio and I measured it out as 2 parts mix to 2 parts Tequila.
Anyone who knows how to make Margaritas knows that I did an "oops" with my measuring. It should have been 3 parts mix to 1 part Tequila. Oh, well... it tasted good and I had the yummy, chunky Margarita salt around the glass rim.
I sat with my drink, a magazine and with the news on, enjoying my break. After the first drink I went back to the kitchen and made another, same way... 2 parts to 2 parts, not realizing what I had done. Throughout the evening until GR and I headed off to bed, I believe I ended up with maybe 4 strong Margaritas all total. And then........
The Tequila hit me!!! Oh my.... I was a witchy woman in bed with GR that night and didn't even realize just HOW witchy I had been until the next morning when he informed me, with a mischievous grin, that there was no stopping me in bed the night before. His words, "Uhhhhh, you were extra passionate while we had sex." It wasn't until we discussed how I mixed the Margaritas that I realized I had made them a bit strong. Anyhow, lesson learned.
I brought all that up to mention this--- Yesterday while running errands in the car, I heard this country song come on the radio and had to laugh. It was a Joe Nichols song entitled: "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off". As the song was playing I wondered if Tequila really is a much stronger liquor than many others because, boy.... my clothes sure did fall off fast.
Anyway, here are the words to the song:
Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off
She said I’m going out with my girlfriends
Margaritas at the Holiday Inn
Lord have mercy, my only thought
Was Tequila makes her clothes fall off
I told her put an extra layer on
I know what happens when she drinks Patrone
Her closet’s missing half the things she’s bought
Ya Tequila makes her clothes fall off
She’ll start with kickin’ out of her shoes
Loose an earring in her drink
Leave her jacket in the bathroom stall
Drop a contact down the sink
Them pantyhose aint gonna last too long
If the DJ puts Bon Jovi on
She might come home in a table cloth
Ya tequila makes her clothes fall off
She can handle any champagne brunch
A bridal shower with Bacardi punch
Jello shooters full of Smirnoff
But Tequila makes her clothes fall off
She don’t mean nothing - she’s just havin fun
Tomorrow she’ll say oh what have I done
Her friends will joke about the stuff she lost
ya tequila makes her clothes fall off
oh Tequila makes her clothes fall off (x2)
