Saucy looks forward to it every year... Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. You may think it nerdy of her, but she just cannot get enough of vicious sharks, chum-sicle bait and the cool footage of deadly sea creatures.
The camera men always manage to get themselves into precarious situations... and Saucy imagines that life with the sharks is pretty similar to high school. The sharks travel in packs, they intimidate each other, they have turf wars... you get the gist. On the other hand, maybe it just reminds her of West Side Story. But no matter, she is addicted nonetheless.
The Great White is like the popular thug bully on the football team. Don't mess with this guy. Don't make eye contact and don't get in his way. He's the boss of the whole place.
The Lemon Sharks that travel in large schools and have feeding frenzies on the smaller sharks remind Saucy of the mean girls. Stay away from them, too.
Do these Cheerios know to stay away from the sharks? Saucy has them trained to stay away from the mean girls.
The Hammerhead Shark, one of Saucy's favourites... and greatly misunderstood. A little goofy looking, but ultimately, like the high school nerd, a success in his own right. Don't underestimate the Hammerhead. He's going places.
To celebrate Shark Week, Saucy whipped up a sea-predator inspired libation that she enjoyed whilst she watched the documented terror.
It began with some plastic shark toys. These Great Whites don't look too menacing, at least not too menacing to be the festive garnish on a summer cocktail.
Saucy shook one part pineapple juice, two parts blue Gatorade and one part pear vodka in a martini shaker over ice and then poured the whole mixture through a strainer over ice in a tall, chilled glass.
She perched the Great White on the rim...
... and filled his gullet with a grisly measurement of grenadine. The sweet syrup fell to the bottom of the glass and the resulting colour was a deep blue-purple shade. It was menacing, but delicious.
Oh, and The Fan fell yesterday and broke her wrist. She will be fine. Saucy will be packing up the martini shaker and paying her a few visits so don't you worry. She might enjoy being a Shark Week watcher after all.
