Looks Tasty

jarritosThe unofficial end of summer is upon us. The weather here isn’t cooperating, though. This summer has been a very pleasant one, with few scorching, oppressive days. Indeed, there were some mornings I walked and I could see my breath. Next week lows in the 50’s are returning.

But today it’s muggy. Being outside is like being wrapped in a hot, wet blanket. Last night, while I was sitting at the table on the deck minding the steaks on the grill, the cicadas were deafening and the odd mosquito or two landed on me. When I think of the dog days of summer….the days of summer I really hate, I think of yesterday evening. Days and days and days of that. We’ve been fortunate to miss that during this summer of 2013.

I usually don’t click sidebar ads, but I one that caught my eye while reading an article in the Atlantic Monthly. Grinning skeletons surrounded by brightly colored fruit. I clicked the ad to watch the video:

If you want to sell me anything, go with the Day of the Dead theme and I’m immediately hooked. I’ve never heard of Jarrito soft drinks before today. They sound tasty. There are a couple Mexican markets which have opened up in Charles Town over the past year or so. I visited one awhile back because I needed an ingredient for chipotle bbq sauce I couldn’t find anywhere else. I bet they carry Jarrito. Fruity drinks made from real sugar. I think one would go down good on a muggy day such as this.
