Well, in his defense, it wasn't actually Jose. And it wasn't single-handed. You see, I had a slumber party with my long-time friend, Rina, last night. Her husband was at a conference and her daughter was at her own slumber party, and Rina invited me over for dinner, margaritas, and Wii. Ted would be in bed before 8:00pm anyway, and with my plans in place, even he went out for early drinks with a friend before hitting the hay.
I re-discovered a couple of things in the process.  The reason I don't eat nachos any more (more than a few corn chips wreak havoc on my digestive system).  Rina makes crazily strong margaritas. The kind that make me breathe fire after each sip.  The combination of the above two items nearly incite me to a life-long diet of oatmeal and prune juice.
We had fun. Don't get me wrong. And playing 1981-style Galaga while slightly buzzed is far more exciting than it should be. We chatted lots and just hung out. It was great. But next time, I'm in charge of the food. And corn chips and tequila will not be included.
