You get a new red car and suddenly you notice that there are a lot of red cars. And not just any red car, but red cars like the one you just bought. So many red cars like the one you bought that you walk up to the wrong car in the Wal-Mart parking lot and try to get inside.
Now, I have not bought either a Mojito or a trip to Dubai. But they have captured my attention as I seem to hear them mentioned a hell of a lot. A Mojito is a mixed drink. Dubai is a country.
A mojito is traditionally made of five ingredients: spearmint, rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime, and carbonated water.
Dubai is located on the Eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, in the south west corner of the Arabian Gulf.
Ok, a short list of recent, more or less, sighting. Mike and Mike on ESPN’s morning show talk about how real men don’t drink Mojitos. Where in the world is Matt Lauer? Dubai. This week Car Talk’s Click and Clark on NPR mention both Dubai and Mojitos, showing that it has reached a critical mass.
Google Dubai-Results 1 – 10 of about 48,300,000 for dubai.
Google mojito-Results 1 – 10 of about 2,980,000 for mojito.
Of course, if someone wants to send me a couple of tickets to Dubia to do follow up and sip a mojito while I am in one their many, many Five Star Hotel Resorts. I would be willing to all due diligence to get to the bottom of this. . .or at least the bottom of a glass.
