The Best Margaritas

Rule #221: I married Jon Boy for his tree chopping and bartending abilities.

Jon Boy has perfected the margarita recipe. We call them Jon-a-Ritas, but for the sake of simplicity, we’ll just go with “The Best Margaritas.” And as I stated in the rule, I married Jon Boy because he can chop a tree down (there’s something about him yielding an axe that gets me every time). I also married my hunky lumberjack because he knows his way around a cocktail.
