OMG I like pina coladas too.
Well, what can I say? I love pina coladas (when in Cancun)
"If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.I'm the lady you've looked for, write to me, and escape."
A lawyer on trial for helping her husband, also an attorney, unlawfully extract thousands of dollars from her former lovers testified Friday that she does not believe the unorthodox means used to get the money is illegal.
"Not at all," Mary S. Roberts said during a full day on the stand and before both the defense and prosecution rested.
Roberts, the daughter of a Lutheran minister from Seguin, also spent the day — at times in tears — laying out a list of embarrassing personal details for the 12 jurors who'll decide next week whether she is guilty of five charges of theft by deception or coercion.
Under cross-examination, Roberts invoked a pop song — Rupert Holmes' "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" — to explain what prompted her to place an ad on an adult Web site. The lyrics tell of a man who answers a personal ad to escape the "same old dull routine," only to find, much to his surprise, it was placed by his "lady."
