Too much tequila or not quite enough...

Source: Semi-True Stories, Jimmy Buffett

This is perhaps my favorite Jimmy Buffett song of all time, and that's saying a LOT. It's a reminiscence of a particular event where he was telling a woman his feelings in a most adolescent way, but he admits that the details have changed over the years. Probably not the part about having too much tequila or not quite enough in his system. It doesn't make it any less true to him and maybe even more dear.

We all have those stories. They all change over time and they're never any less true. We all know couples who have terrific times bickering over the details. He sings fun songs, drinking songs, songs that make you laugh and cry. And this is my favorite.
