Some Beasts Have Come to Stay...

One of my housemates and I were sitting on our deck, enjoying some organic, no-sugar-added frozen strawberry margaritas.*


We were talking, and suddenly realized: We weren't alone.
We had Visitors. Beasts.

(Two Beasts and a Being. To be exact.)

The guy on our left told us he's a Troll, by the name of Burlie. He said his friend's name is Friend.

The Being with them introduced herself as Paradoxy. (Dox for short.)

She was particularly impressed with our antique cocktail glass.

Of course we asked them to join us.

(Good thing we have lots of small glasses!)



Mmm! Refreshing.

Burlie, for all his strength, couldn't quite hoist the glass.

(Oh, excuse me...he says he didn't want to.)

I was afraid that strawberry margaritas would be too fruity-pinky-girly for a Troll...

But no. Burlie assured me he liked it very much.

We wondered how Friend could drink without arms....

But he manages!

Spills? Not a problem!

Over drinks, they told us they were visiting from a faraway Emerald Isle. A Beast friend of theirs had invited them to America to study human nature.

(Well, they called it "Giant nature." But we figured out what they meant.)

So far, they had found their researches wildly entertaining. But now... well, they were looking for a place to stay...
 What could we say? Looks like they'll be sticking around for awhile. (As long as they want!)
*Recipe: (Relatively) Healthy "Sugar-free"** Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

-Blanco tequila
-Hangar One Orange Vodka (because less sugar than Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, etc.)
-Fresh-squeezed organic lemon juice
(3:1:2--or to taste)
-Fresh organic strawberries
-Frozen organic strawberries (instead of ice)
-Strawberry Stevita (naturally flavored stevia)

**Booze and fruit, of course, contain sugars.
