Margarita de Pepino (Cucumber Margarita)
Okay, so I forgot a few of the "for my love" parts...but I remember the tune and most of the words like I was singing it with all of the fervor of a preschooler just yesterday! Anybody else?
So what in the world does this have to do with margaritas you ask? Nothing really. It's just that I chose Green, Green, Green is everything I'm wearing as the theme for IHCC this week because of my memories of the song and I'm beginning to think I'm the only one who ever sang it. Well, and the others in my preschool class. I know I didn't imagine them. Isn't it funny the things we remember? I mean, I don't remember all that much from 30-some years ago, but I do remember that.
