Un Tope en mi Vida

Tope: A Mexican speed bump.

I’m not looking for Disneyland
      Although I’d love to see my old friends again
I’m not looking to drink margaritas in Paradise
     Although I swear Chynna’s libations are heaven sent

Ode to Beer

Have you heard the news? It's National Beer Day!

Of all my favorite things to do,
The utmost is to have a brew.

My love grows for my foamy friend,
With each thirst-quenching elbow bend.
