Spicy Shrimp and Cool Avocado Quesadillas

I wore black combat boots and skinny jeans today. Spicy.
Son Andrew said to me before dinner, “Mom. You totally look militant.” Cool.
Everytime I brought a plate to the kitchen table, my heels would click-click on the floor. Spicy.
They click-clicked across the laundry room as I was loading the dryer. Cool.
They looked super saucy whilst I folded that laundry. Spicy.
Then, the zipper stuck when at last I was ready to take them off for bed. Neither spicy nor cool.
Just another day in the life of a quasi-fly thirtysomething with sincerely questionable fashion sense.

    Those look delicious! I think the green spinach wrap makes it more desirable.
