Midori Colada

I guess I’m sort of on a “colada” roll this week.

And after the week I’ve had, I could definitely use one of these today. Except I’m now out of Midori, so I can’t make any more until I get to the store…and, at the rate I’m going, I probably can’t get there for another few days. So make one of these for me, would ya?

I wish I had a better picture to show you. But the reality of it is, when I went to take this picture, my camera shut down, thumbing its nose at me and telling me to “change the batteries.”

Except I couldn’t find any.

And, since it was a fairly warm day, my icy drink was melting at an alarming rate. Frantic, I took batteries out of every remote in the house, until I finally found a combination with enough juice to power up the camera for long enough to take one picture.

And then I drank this, ’cause by that time, I kinda needed it.

At which point, the Tall Boy returned home to tell me that he had a stock pile of double A batteries hidden in some super special top secret location I knew nothing about.  Seriously?  Who hides batteries?  Apparently, my husband.  Although it wasn’t so much “hiding” the batteries as it was “remembering” that he tossed some aside instead of putting them away.

You’d think that after nearly 10 years, I’d be used to his methods of “organizing,” but I’m not.  These midori coladas sure help, though.  =)
