People magazine is all about the ‘boozy popsicle‘ today —

watermelon mojito pops‘Boozy’ as in popular popsicle flavors spiked with alcohol — like the watermelon mojito pops garnished with mint pictured at the left.

Looks cool and refreshing, yes…and perhaps a bit lethal for the younger set.

But, I’m sorry.

Every time I hear the phrase ‘boozy popsicle,’ I think —

What a perfect stripper name.

Or maybe even the name of a band (depending on what kind of music they play). Let’s not forget that one, folks.

It’s a keeper.

Sniff test

Trash day is tomorrow here in NYC — heck , we have it three days a week — so the garbage bags were lining the streets during my evening walk with Rory.

In my neighborhood most of the bags are Mint-X brand, advertised to be rodent-repellent…which got me thinking —

What do mice have against mint?

Is it poisonous to them? Does it make them sick? Will it irritate their creepy rodent skin?

Nope. They simply don’t like the smell.

Well, la te da. Sorry to offend the disease-carrying little critters.
