YUMMY Rum Runners


I went to pick the girls up Monday after school from Ma's the Rock got home a few minutes later. Ma asked him to puleeeze make her a drink. I guess the angels themselves were stressing her out...can't figure that one out..haha. Anyway she wanted a daiquiri. Urgh..Brought back memories.



The Keeper and I along with our husbands went to the local Tiki bar some years back.
We noticed this beautiful new machine that was pouring out these yummy looking frozen drinks so of course we had to try one. Oh, the frozen concoction was just what we needed. They were so YUMMY and went perfect with the hot evening. We preceded to drink these and we were liking them more and more and feeling better and better. We drank more than our fair share of these but damn they were good.
However, our fondness for our favorite new drink was short lived. I don't know what happened, oh wait yes I do. We decided we had enough drinks to strap on our armor and get into a riff with these other girls. Well our husbands had different ideas, apparently it was time for us to go home so we reluctantly went our separate ways bitching and moaning because we weren't done.
On the way home I decided I was feeling a little too warm so I started removing whatever clothing items I could first the shoes, then the shirt, then the pants. I was down to my bra and undies by the time we got home and I was still sweating like a pig. So now was time for the rest to come off, mind you we lived in town, not a real busy road but light poles everywhere so there was plenty light for anyone around. By the time I got to the front porch I was in the buff, pucking up those yummy rum runners, waiting for my husband to come let me in. What the hell was taking him so long? I laid on the cold concrete slab and decided I didn't care it was cold and felt good. My plans were to remain out there for the evening eventually he carried me in tho.
I called the Keeper the next morning, she too had gotten sick. Boy was her husband Pissed. You see they had just got new light green carpet installed and apparently the rum runners stain red when you puke them up all over your new carpet.

It is now about 17yrs later an I still have not had a frozen rum drink and due to gravity the clothes stay on until in the confines of my home.

What a hoot! Although, when you puke your brains out, laying on cool concrete is very soothing.

I have fond memories of unending Rum Runners in Fla with an old boyfriend. We were so hammered we thought it would be hysterical to call the front desk from the bar and complain about the noise from "room 356" (our room). Don't ask.
