“To err is human, but to blame it on somebody else shows management potential.” - Anonymous

Recently I‘ve had overabundant dealings with blameologists. Don’t know what that is?  It’s a person who is able to blame others faster than my ex-boyfriend’s attempts at fore-play. Did I somehow miss that class in high school? I mean, I’m not above blaming the dog for my farts. And I used to blame my messy house and nasty car on my kids (damn them for leaving home!). And I understand how blaming the boss can be a fabulous team building exercise. But, does one need a scapegoat for EVERYTHING?

I guess so, based on our national addiction to responsibility-avoidance. It reminds me of kids deciding who’s going to be IT in a game. Everyone’s screaming, “Not IT!”

Maybe I just need some practice at this blaming thing – you know, so I can fit in better. By God, I’m going to take the gloves off and practice some serious finger pointing RIGHT NOW. Let’s see….

  -- I can blame my messy desk at work on fracking and those damn earthquakes.
  -- I can blame my Sunday morning blood-shot eyes on allergies. Yea, that’s it. ALLERGIES.
  -- I can blame my fork for my recent weight gain.
  -- I can blame Siri for that drunk call to an old boyfriend at 2 AM.
  -- I can blame my underwear for that quickie sex I had in the bathroom the other night.
  -- I can blame global warming for my crab grass.
  -- And, God knows, I can blame my mother for everything else.

So, if you don’t like this post … or this blog … it’s not my fault! Go find your girlfriends and have a Blame-storming party. See how many things you can blame on others. But be sure to fix some Blame It on Rio cocktails! Blaming will never be so fun!

      Blame It on Rio

      ½  oz vodka
      ½  oz spiced rum
      ½  oz coconut rum
      ½  oz amaretto
      ½  oz peach schnapps
      ½  oz banana liqueur
      3 oz pineapple juice
      soda water to taste

Shake up the vodka, rum, amaretto, peach schnapps, banana liqueur and pineapple juice in a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour into a highball glass filled with ice cubes. Top with soda water, to taste. Squeeze in the juice from a lime wedge. Serve. And, of course, drink!
