Thinking about my prior answer, I’m heading with margaritas. No salt, no sugar, and no mezcal. I’m a tequila blanco lady. To me, mezcal preferences like loafers. And yes, I’d like a side of beautifully salted chips and clean ceviche, many thanks for asking. The guacamole is new far too, you say? Wonderful. Include to cart.

I need a book, a journal, and studying glasses. I know you claimed just one item, but they occur as a group.
Aisle or window?
I choose a middle seat. Kidding. Window all the way. I need that sliver of non-occupied place to call my individual. A perception that I can breathe without having inhaling stranger fumes.
