I left the frigid spring in Connecticut last Monday for the warm, dry and colorful city of San Antonio, Texas – almost John Howell country. The week was a mix of meetings, learning, eating, drinking and a little sightseeing. I’ll be dribbling photos and bits of the experience in, over the next few blog posts (and several Thursday Doors posts), but to keep this closer to one-line, I’ll keep this one simple.
That said, this one-liner is really a snippet of conversation – when will you stop expecting me to change? Seriously, I think you’ll understand. Our snippet takes place at a welcome reception for some people attending either the Board Meeting or the pre-conference tutorial sessions. It was held on the 4th floor pool deck and we were baking in the hot afternoon sun. Notice that I didn’t say ‘basking’ in the sun. Nope, we were baking. And, as much as I am ready for spring, I wasn’t ready for August.
I meandered up to the bar for some relief, where this bit of dialog played out between me and the soon-to-be-heavily-tipped bartender:
“What can I get you?”
“I’ll have a Dos Equis.”
“You want it as is, or dressed?”
“Dressed – San Antonio style. With lime and salt.”
“San Antonio style sounds good to me.”
“Would you want Mexican San Antonio style?”
“Mexican San Antonio style?”
“Dressed with lime and spiced salt.”
“That sounds interesting, I’ll give that a try.”
Oh, my goodness. The spiced salt was so good, I was licking the side of the can by the time I got to the end of the beer. I need to see if I can find some spiced salt to bring Cheryl at the bar on Saturday. Send that Corona out for a lime and bring her back nicely dressed.
