feliz ole?




went to buy my teaching partners a little something with a mexican flair as part of their holiday gifts. ole, ole, ole!


 when i got home, actually put my glasses on, and went to wrap their gifts, i discovered that i had bought this. 



when i gave them their gifts, they were not surprised and very understanding and said it had been a rough week and maybe firewater was more what they needed anyway. this is why we work well as a team.

  1. That is too funny, Beth. Fireball sure has smart graphic designers doing the label work! I can see making the same mistake with my reading glasses sitting on ther car console. Your teaching colleagues may like the cinammon whisky in any case.


  2. Cinnamon whisky, that’s hysterical! I live in Spain and I make this kind of mistake all the time, because I buy things by the colour of the packaging without bothering to read the labels…


  3. You make being blind as a bat cool! Which is great because so many people recently have been trying to encourage me to get laser surgery. Then I’d never have the fun (or excuse) you have! 🙂


  4. I think your teaching partners are delightful in their acceptance. They made a great joke about ‘firewater!’ I am helpless without my contacts in, but I have grabbed things often to find, once home, it wasn’t even my eyesight but the familiarity of its appearance. I am, like Mark above, thinking that was a wise move on the designers of the label! I like cinnamon and would make it a hot toddy with apple cider or some kind of warm drink! It will be hot by itself! Feliz Navidad!
