Please drink responsibly.  Wink

So my best friend/favorite broad in the whole world, Jai and I have this thing about tequila. I bought a bottle at one point for margaritas and well the night went on and we were out of margaritas and left with a whole lot of tequila. So we attacked the bottle and  shot by shot, we polished it off.
Mind you we were both under the influence lol. Well someone said something about throwing out the empty bottle and her and I yelled "Noooooo! We have to keep it!" "We'll keep it forever!" "Its a trophy!!" and so on and so forth. 
We took a picture with the bottle and I ended up taking it home. After a bit, I took the label off and ditched the bottle. Soon it became a thing that every party where there was alcohol, Jai and I had a bottle of Jose  and sure enough, I kept the label.

After collecting and stashing these labels for some time, I surprised her on her birthday with the picture from that original tequila bottle and a frame artfully covered in all those labels.


the metal dealie from around the neck of the bottle
the smashed cap of one of the bottles
and the original picture

She LOVED it  Grin Grin Grin Grin
