A Very Cheetos Christmas

Anyone who reads my blog regularly probably knows what a fan I am of Cheetos Torciditos. I have probably done more to promote them than anyone in my part of Mexico and I’ve addicted more  than a dozen friends and caused the store right next to the Racquet Club to start selling larger bags of them.  Now, if you are wondering why I am suddenly showing a bag of them on my blog, perhaps the next photo will clarify.

Two days ago a mysterious, beautifully-wrapped gift showed up under my Christmas tree.  Since it was my only gift to open and so beautiful, I still hadn’t unwrapped it until today when Sergio, my next door neighbor, came over to borrow chairs and TV trays for his party. He insisted I open it, but the wrappings are shown below.

Now, if you take a less closeup view of my bag of Cheetos, you can see that it is a very large bath towel with an image of a bag of Cheetos Tordicos on it.  It turns out that they went to a lot of work to locate it in Liverpool, where they were sold out, and finally located it on the internet. They know me so well. Not only is this my favorite food on Earth, but I have been looking in vain for a full-sized towel to use in the pool.

Thanks once again to the best neighbors ever––David and Sergio.

They threw a great party as well, where I wore my Cheetos towel as a cape, looking like some sort of Cheese Curl Avenger.  Photos to follow.

This is me, trying to show my cape but unable to figure out how without turning it around backwards. I might have figured out a better way if it hadn’t been for the sangria…Happy Boxing Day, Everyone!!!

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      They are. Every holiday, I decorate the outside wall of my house opposite their kitchen window and try to find them some special ornament or ornaments. And every year they sneak a unique present under my tree. One year it was the monkey I hung up opposite their kitchen window and I decorate it with a diffrent “outfit” for each holiday. This year he was dressed up as a snowman with stockings for each of my neighbors with a switch in them and a big “Hic” cloth sculpture with two pockets–one holding a small bottle of vodka and the other a packet of Alka Seltzer.

        Mine are about 1/2 mile away, but still my closest neighbors and best friends~! The are both only a little younger than me and very much like me in their liberal thinking way. I am invited several times a month to a great meal,, and gab fest; she is a fantastic cook~!. My life here, in a way, would not be possible without them. He knows when I have a project under way or a problem I need to fix and is here to help out.. I try to do the same and return their friendship in kind. In addition their liberal church and friends have become my extended friendship and friends, which broadens my life. Yes, this is my (only) answer to a home for the aged. In addition they are in connection with my kids and other close friends and neighbors, and that extends my physical possibilities because they are looking in on me if I ever were to have a medical problem to worry about.
