  1. How nice to know how the upper eschelon live (or stop living as the case may be). Drew the line at .029% long ago (of course I am foolish enough to believe that line can be extended many more drinks than it probably is)

    • i’ve always been tempted to test myself. i have a supermarket breathalyzer around here somewhere, but then i get too drunk to remember it…


        Oh that is so funny and so sadly true I am totally cracking up, hahahaha!

        Ohhh, I wish we could have gotten this into tabular format for you, sweetie!

        I love it, it’s accurate, truthful, funny, and yet not-so funny — walking that tightrope that you do on this blog & is really why I like it, I like what it is doing for you in being a creative outlet and shows that, really, I still can find my own sense of humor in this all.

        Keeping a balance with a sense of humor is a good thing, for sure.

        BTW: I just noticed on your Twitter that you were worried about drinking on Sunday. I just wanted to say, good on ya for holding it to what you did. It was really cool that you could and did maintain a line, a boundary, with it, and I am proud of you.

    • i knew what you meant, Sweetie.

      Thanks as well for the props on the post. It’s not an easy line to walk, but i feel really comfortable in that gray area.

      Yeah, i was pleased with how well SUnday turned out, too. Everybody wins!
