I’m not a huge drinker anymore. Perhaps it’s because I partied myself out from the years 2002 to 2006, and totally got it out of my system for the most part. So many people find it absurd that I don’t have a glass of red wine with my supper at the end of a long work week. It’s not that I’m against drinking at all. I do enjoy it, but I just don’t crave the flavors that wine, vodka or rum has. It’s also not the fact that I get hangovers. I’ve gotten maybe 6 hangovers in my life. So lucky, those hangovers were nasty when I had them. Sure there are tasty liquors out there but I’m not one to just pop into the liquor store and buy a bottle of wine for the weekend. The last time I purchased a bottle of wine was Valentines 2010 (look how tiny Alfie was! 4mths old, aww!). We were in the mood for a bottle during Easter, so we purchase some Reisling. White wine that was sweet and light.Almost as good as some Black diamond earrings!
On occasion, meaning once every year and a half or so (lol), I go out and get absolutely hammered and dance the night away. Of course, more times than going binge drinking I actually have a glass of vodka/cran and slowly drink it like a proper adult too.
It’s not even the way I was brought up, either. Some people ask me if I had bad experiences is why I don’t drink much. No, not that either really. There isn’t a REASON why I don’t drink. I just don’t go out of my way to the store to buy booze. My Dad makes homemade wine from scratch and bottles almost hundreds of bottles per year. Everyone loves his wine and wants him to make it for them. My parents drink wine with their supper, while I say pass the milk, please!. I’d rather a nice icy cold glass of milk with my supper. I switched my Boyfriend onto milk with his supper in the almost 6 years we’ve been a couple. He used to just have pop, or water. I’m all about the milk drinking with my supper. How about you?
