Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.
It’s official: Your Cinco de Mayo has gone off the rails.
You’re on your way to Maria’s Cinco de Mayo party when you pass the amusement park. With its mountainous peaks and devastating drops, you can’t resist admiring the Falcon Fall Frenzy coaster, and you quickly find you can’t just stand by. Armed with your party snack of choice — Guac a la Veracruzana With Plantain Chips — you work your way through the line and board the ride.
The wind flies through your hair as you wave your hands above your head and scream. But just as your cart climbs to the highest peak, the wheels skid to a stop. The adrenaline subsides. You’re stuck. You become self-conscious about your windswept hair.
After an hour, your stomach is rumbling, and you just can’t wait any longer to bust out your guacamole. It’s time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, even though you’re stuck on a roller coaster. Here are some tips for making the most of it:
“I can’t believe they make you guys work on Cinco de Mayo!” you say when the firefighters finally arrive. One of them turns to you and says, “It’s not Cinco. At least not yet!” then takes a generous scoop of your guacamole. “Now that’s Cinco!”
