100 Word Challenge: Mule

For the past three days I have been at death’s door – not exactly, but I did have the migraine from hell and as a result have felt like shit warmed over – bed-ridden, aspirin-popping, Alka-Seltzer chewing, ginger ale swilling, saltines munching, head-throbbing, stomach roiling sick.

I blame some questionable chicken salad.

Suffice it to say, I’m glad to finally be back in the land of the living, especially in time to celebrate my 32nd anniversary later this week.

The Mister and I’ve nothing too extravagant planned. According to Hallmark, we can’t even exchange gifts again until our 35th – that’s Coral for those of you keeping score.

Moscow Mule


  • 4-6 oz Ginger beer
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • Ice
  • Lime wedge garnish


Add ice to copper mug, squeeze in fresh lime juice. Pour in vodka and add in ginger beer. Stir. Garish with lime wedge.

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “mule” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
