Got any plans for Cinco de Mayo?
Most of the United States seems to religiously celebrate this holiday, even though it’s apparently a Mexican holiday. Rumor has it that the fifth of May is just an excuse for people to get shlumped. #CincodeDrinco #DrincodeMayo
Nonetheless, who can resist the opportunity to turn up senselessly? I for one, intend to partake in the mexicano festivities. Drinking and tacos. But, knowing that I have work in the morning, I have to take a moment and really think about my life. Tequila ain’t no joke. Should I turn up from home in moderation, or actually go out?
1. DJ You
Maybe you’re not trying to sit through an hour or two of America’s Most Played Out Songs. At the same time, you relieve yourself of the pressure of fuckin up on the aux.
2. $9 For a Shot of Henny
So economically, this just isn’t logical. If you could pull it together, you could get a bottle of Henny, split it with 3-4 people easy. On the other hand, if you’re not tryna turn up that hard, $9 drinks is a good incentive to drink in moderation.
The whole point of going out is to go out, turn up and maybe finesse a nighty. But, we all have our nights where we’re just tryna turn up. No hoes. Unfortunately, there’s no red light beaming from our foreheads stating “No, thank you :)”.
4. Isn’t this technically racist?
Idk about you, but sometimes I feel guilty about trivializing this holiday. This is the era of sensitivity and I’m tryna keep the peace. Back in college, the phrase #CincoDeDrinco was safe, but I read a few angry rants today in regards to the moniker. Also, apparently there’s still people in the world that think that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day? According to this wikipedia page, it isn’t. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinco_de_Mayo
At the end of the day, it’s Thursday…which happens to be the best day of the week to turn up. So turn up. Turn up for the kids, turn up for our brothers south of the border. & be safe :).
