Are you ready for another Tish-ism? It is hilarious, breathtaking and involves tears; all at the same time.
When I had my first margarita several years ago, I was with friends. We were out for supper, and then we were going to a social event. We had plans to view anime at a local venue, with more friends. So we had our meal, with a margarita. If I remember correctly, we had the meal at a Mexican restaurant, hence the margarita with the meal.
About an hour later, we were in the lobby outside the theatre where the anime was being viewed. A few of us were taking a break to socialize, as there were different episodes of different anime shows being played throughout the evening, so it was not uncommon for small groups of people to hang out in the lobby and chit chat while waiting for the next one to start.
There is no recollection of the exact thing that started what I was going to term my first margarita moment. Something struck me funny. Really funny. I started laughing uncontrollably. Then came the tears. Hilarity ensued, as I continued the laughing fit and nobody else got the joke. Which made me laugh even harder, to the point where I had to force myself to breathe because the laughing and crying had caused me to lose my breath. Literally.
So the next time that happens to you, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Margarita moments can happen to anyone, at any time. Plot twist: margaritas are optional.
