The Kentucky Derby is over. It was eerie how the phone just suddenly stopped ringing at 3 pm. One of my coworkers rigged a daisy chain of paper clips into an antenna so we could all get to watch it on NBC. Not a single call came in through during Street Sense's race from 19th to the win and the celebration afterwards. It took twenty minutes before life returned to normal.
Now I have ten minutes to get ready for my birthday dinner which will be followed by celebratory Cinco de Mayo margaritas.
It's been a busy day.
So, here we go.
Congrats, Street Sense for coming from behind to win.
Congrats, Mexico, for the battle of Pueblo being the turning point in the French/Mexican war.
And Congrats to everyone who has a birthday on cinco de mayo. This margarita is for me and you!
