Cinco De Mayo

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Ah, Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May. That's the day the Mexican Army defeated French forces at the Battle of Puebla. Here in Florida it's a pretty big celebration. You see Cinco de Mayo parties advertised at most bars and people celebrate with massive amounts of tequila, margaritas and Mexican beers.

Can you taste that frozen margarita as it slips icily down your throat? Or maybe you like tequila shots better. And is that a mariachi band playing in the background? What song is that? It sounds like they are singing Happy Birthday. Yes, yes, I think it's Happy Birthday. Who are they singing Happy Birthday to? Let's listen in...

(imagine 4 guys dressed in mariachi attire, playing guitars and trumpets and singing with accents)

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear B.J.
Happy Birthday to you!

Yes, here at SIS Cinco de Mayo has a different meaning. For us, it's time to celebrate B.J.'s birthday! And I think instead of margaritas, she would like us to celebrate with Bloody Mary's.

In honor of B.J.'s birthday, I would like to recite a little poem...Uh hem...

Some say you're sweet and shy
You couldn't hurt a flea
But I saw the evil in your eye
When you smeared cake on me

Um, wait, I can do better...

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I wish you a happy birthday
And send lots of love too!

Ok, I stink! A little help here please! Feel free to add a poem of your own to help wish B.J. a wonderful birthday!

When we were young, you kicked my butt.
Until my dog said enough is enough.
He tackled you hard. Made you scream.
JT was my hero...or was that a dream?

Ha! I'm not much better than Bren. Happy birthday, Love Bug!
I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

By the way, Bren, I loved the mariachi scene!

Thank you Bren and Barb. Brenda, you started it with the cake. Barb, I think that was Bob that JT tackled for holding you down.

SIS Brandy said...

I don't remember the JT incident, but I do remember you two duking it out in the front yard!!

Happy birthday BJ!!! I hope your day is wonderful.

SiS BJ said...

Thank you for the birthday wishes Brandy. We weren't duking it out, we were dancing.

P.S. I would like to call you today, but you have not updated your phone number with me. I thought I was your favorite?

I guess it's up to me to provide some quality penmanship here, so here goes:

Make your wish and it takes flight
To fill your life with love and light
Blow your birthday candles out
And watch your wish begin to sprout
Sing and dance through sun lit hours
And don't forget to smell the flowers
Share good times and celebrate
With loving kids and your soul mate
And when the moon comes into view
Thank your lucky stars you're you!

A poet I am not, so I'll so show mercy to you (and everyone else) and not subject you to my bumbling attempt. But I really do hope you're having a terrific birthday, BJ! Here's raising my vanilla coffee to your Bloody Mary!

Beth Ciotta said...

I know you're at work just now BJ, so I'll shout this loud.... HAPPY, HAPPY, FANTABULOUS BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's to a year full of joy and inspiration.

Clinking my cyber Bloody Mary to yours. Love you much!!
