To all my Mexican friends a belated congratulations for your “5 de Mayo” celebration. May 5th is Mexico’s great Day.
Have you ever heard the song “La Cucaracha”? I’ve always had a feeling that it originated in Mexico, but that might not be the case, although it became popular there during the Mexican Revolution.
Listen to this! Is it a coincidence or what? A CUCARACHA (a cockroach) and I shared a carrot drink yesterday! That was the most disgusting thing I’ve had in a long time! A Cucaracha drink on 5 de Mayo!! I can’t believe it!
I have a juicer! I’ve had the juicer sitting in the laundry room for a month. (My kitchen is tiny!) I’ve not been in the mood of going to all the trouble of juicing. Yesterday I decided to get in the mood, so I made myself some carrot juice. I had a whole glass of delicious juice, the best I’ve ever had! So I decided to juice some more! That’s when I discovered it! The CUCARACHA in the container that held the juice! Was that why the juice was so delicious? I did not drink a second glass!
Where did the CUCARACHA come from? Did it come in through the dryer vent? Do I have CUCARACHAS in my house? I’m happy by myself! I don’t want CUCARACHAS to keep me company!
I’ve sang this song many times. It’s got a fun and catching melody. But I’ve never planned on sharing a drink with one! I hope it’s the first and last time!
|La cucaracha, la cucaracha,||The cockroach, the cockroach,|
|ya no puede caminar||can’t walk anymore|
|porque le falta, porque no tiene||because it’s lacking, because it doesn’t have|
|las patitas de atrás.||its little back feet.|
|Ya murió la cucaracha||The cockroach just died|
|ya la llevan a enterrar||now they take her to be buried|
|entre cuatro zopilotes||among four buzzards|
|y un ratón de sacristán.||and a mouse as the sexton.|
