I chewed through my leash this evening and ran a couple of errands by myself while my husband was putting the kids to bed. On the way home I thought I'd stop and get my husband and I something to eat. There is this local Mexican place called Nico's that has a bit of a cult following. It's "fast" Mexican food, but still authentic. As their popularity has grown they have opened more locations throughout town. It's open crazy hours and attracts a wide-range of clientele from prominent local business men and women to drunk college students hungry after clubbing all night.

Tonight as I pulled into the parking lot I saw in the distance what I thought were horses. As I got closer I realized they were totally horses. Parked. In the handicap parking. Tied to the handicap sign.

I couldn't help myself. I was hysterical. I don't know why I found this so funny. Something about riding a horse to a restaurant. Parking in an actual parking space. The handicap space no less. I called my husband and then my mom and we were all dying. I had to compose myself before I could get out of the car so the owners wouldn't hear my mockery. I walked up and struck up a conversation. Turns out they ride their horse to Walgreen too. Seriously?

Only in Tucson.....
