Independence Day[s]

“Can we are have Margaritas today?”

“Um.  I don’t think I’ve ever made one.”

“You are make dem?”

“I can try.  We’ll look it up on the web and make virgin ones.”

“Only one?”

“No several.  Maybe alcoholic ones for us grown ups and non-alcoholic or virgin ones for you youngsters.  Can’t be that difficult.”

“There are being two kinds of Margaritas?”

“I think there are lots of different kinds but they’re not really my kind of a thing.”

“But you are like them?”

“What’s not to like?  Are they traditional for Americans on Independence Day?”

“Yes.”

“Where did you learn that?  I’d have thought they were more Mexican than American?”

“No dats Mexican Hats.”

“I don’t think anyone will be wearing a Mexican Hat in the street parade.”

“You are not being wearing a Mexican Hat.”

“No I’m not going to be wearing a Mexican Hat.”

“No!  Nobody is wearing a Mexican Hat!”

“It’s o.k.  I’m not arguing with you.  I’m agreeing with you.  You’re right no-one will be wearing a Mexican Hat.”

“I am not want to talk about Mexican Hats.  I am want to be talking about margaritas.”

“I thought we’d already sorted out the margaritas?”

“No.”

“No?  What have we left out?”

“I’m gonna wear the Margaritas and the other people are gonna be wearing the two other colors.”

“What other colors?  What do you mean ‘wear?’”

“I’m gonna decorate my hat with Margaritas coz they are being white.  You’re gonna wear Mexican Hats coz they are being red and we need a blue flower too.”

“Ah! Marguerites!  The flower, not the booze.”
