I've never been a big drinker; even when I was young I never wanted to get drunk and lose control. The idea of doing things I might regret or, worse yet, couldn't remember doing, was an anathema to me. And let's not mention the hangovers and getting sick part. Who needs that? I don't really like the taste of alcohol, and I can be a party girl drinking diet soda, so what's the point? It makes me a cheap date, which isn't a bad thing. That being said, I'm not a teetotaler. I like tropical drinks on a beach or a cruise, a margarita (or two) while having lunch with a friend, and I'm a sucker for good champagne. Keeping this honest, I have drunk quite a lot of champagne over the years; it gets me happy, not drunk, and it never makes me sick or hungover. Champagne is a social drink; it's not the kind of thing you drink all by yourself, so I don't have to worry about creating a drinking habit while we're in isolation, which is probably a good thing, because eating and drinking seems to be the activity of choice these days, and I've discovered that liquor stores deliver. But I think when these days of social distancing are gone, I'm going to buy a few bottles of my favorite champagne, gather with those I love, and do a little social drinking.
We will have a virtual social drinking night and laugh, have good wholesome talk, fun, laugh more and enjoy the company we are with.
That would be wonderful, but the real fun will be when we can all be in the same room again. Stay well!
I’m with you Elise. Margaritaville.
My treat! LOL
