Maybe for tonight there’ll be one cocktail. Maybe there will be two. It’s not a habit…but, once in a while, a girl needs a drink with an umbrella in it.
I’m not a big drinker. The same bottle of vodka has been in our freezer for over two years. I buy the little, individual bottles of wine, because I can’t finish more than a glass at a time.
That doesn’t mean that I disapprove or that I have a problem with others enjoying a drink. I just don’t like to lose control. I usually know that I’ve had enough when I feel it in my knees. At that point, I need to either keep one drinking and get blotto, or go home and go to bed…after several glasses of water.
With a history of migraines, I try not to do anything to encourage a headache; but, really, I just don’t like to let go and make a fool of myself.
So, maybe tonight, after all of the stress with work, family, illness and life in general, I’ll have just one.
