Who signs up for the Beer Mile where you have to drink a lot of beer while running a mile? 81-year-old Elvira Montes from El Paso, that’s who!
It’s actually her second time running the FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships, but she didn’t enjoy the first time because “I’m not a big beer drinker,” Montes said. “I like beer when the weather is real hot and there’s nothing else to drink. I’m really a scotch drinker, Chivas if it’s available. If it was scotch we were drinking instead of beer, I would have run a lot faster.” There’s an idea.
Everything has a prolonged life in a Latino household…EVERYTHING. No matter how old or broken something got, your parents were always able to fix, salvage, or reuse it just to make sure you don’t waste a damn thing.
If it’s a liquid, in a bottle, and running low…just add water.
Everything in the fridge — and deep in the freezer — gets thrown into a stock pot and heated into mami’s famous Seasonal Fridge Soup. If we didn’t finish it, those leftovers got frozen for dinner next month.
