UGH! Another Day In The Life Of The Pandemic. Let’s Just Fucking Drink To It First Thing.
If you are anything like us, you rise everyday blinking against the glare of the morning light–sure you are waking from a nightmare. One where everyone around the globe is forced to quarantine themselves to their homes while a flu-like virus called the Coronavirus (or Covid-19) ravages the world threatening to take our beloved elderly–and the physically vulnerable–from us.
Initially, you are momentarily relieved! What a ridiculous concept. One that could only come to life on the big screen in flicks like Contagion, which we all know are based on the fantastic! Not reality–right? And then you remember…this shit is real…and it’s far from over.
Here’s the good news! Tomorrow is a weekend day! (Or is it? And does it really even fucking matter?) So, after you shake off the trauma that you have experienced every morning for the last month (or year, or decade…or whatever the hell it’s been), start your day right with a refreshing Morning Martini, from your friends at She Explores life.
You all know how much we love our cocktails. But why wait until it’s late into the day or evening to imbibe like you’re on an awesome girls vacay in Vegas? Cue up our recommended shows to binge or one of our favorite flicks with strong female leads and mix this awesome morning martini recipe!
