it’s about 6:30 pm here, and i’m having a glass of wine. i also made some linguine. but to be honest, i made it to soak up the wine. no, that’s an exaggeration (tonight anyway). i was actually making the linguine – my mom left it in my fridge – and i turned around and saw the wine and things just clicked!!
i find the first glass is always the most dangerous. i am a get tipsy quickly kind of person. normally this means, i don’t need to indulge to an extreme, but of course needs and wants are not the same thing (thanks school for teaching me about sociology!). every once and awhile i just go for it – like the night a couple months ago when i fell out of bed. i was reaching for something i dropped and just kept going. oops right?
i am just giggling to myself over here! seriously. one glass of wine and i’m having the time of my life. of course, this can easily switch direction and i could be weeping. this is why i am choosing to watch crime procedurals on tv tonight, rather than ‘say yes to the dress’ which is my kryptonite!!
please don’t think i have a problem or anything. i am just unwinding a bit 🙂 i do think that in the past my approach to drinking was problematic, but that was in high school, with a whole bunch of extenuating circumstances.
i hate this letter now.
ps just watched the ep from november 9th. at the end of the segment with the heroes who rescued the guy trapped under a car that was on fire you said “we’re going to take a look a the new viral videos burning up the web” – i’m sure that was a slip of the tongue, but isn’t the brain hilarious??
i wrote this about 3 days ago and obviously got distracted and didn’t hit send. i know you’ll want to know what i was up to on monday night, so here you go!
