There’s really nothing I enjoy more than drinking, and I’d like to take a little time out to debunk drinking myths and challenge the pervasive taboos.
Drinking Before 5pm
If you’ve ever been to a St. Patrick’s Day parade or to an all-inclusive resort, you’ll see that I’m not alone in ignoring this ridiculous rule. There’s a reason mimosas and bloody marys exist. And what about people working the graveyard shift? They’re not allowed to pop open a brewsky when they get home from work at 7am? That’s not a very nice way to treat our police force and medical professionals, you know.
Who ever decided that this was the surefire sign that you’re 3 seconds away from locking yourself in the garage with the car running? If you go out to dinner alone, it’s all, “Good for you, Larry!”, but taking yourself on a wine and cheese date in front of the T.V. is out of the question? I don’t drink alone because I’m lonely, I drink alone because sometimes I’m the best company around and L.I.T.s are delicious. Cheers, dammit.
Drinking to Get Drunk
Drinking isn’t so much about the flavor of the alcohol (winos, ‘fess up) as it is the entire experience. No one likes a slob spilling merlot on your amazing new shoulder-padded sweaterdress, but everyone who drinks likes a buzz. If they didn’t, the virgin daquiri enterprise would be a lot more successful, and non-alcoholics would know what a Coors Cutter is. Drinking is so popular because it Feels Good!
Let’s face it, there are simply some things that one cannot bear without a little help from Jimmy or Jack. For some, it’s family events, for others, it’s work. Or baby-sitting. For me, it’s club music, overcrowded bars and “Citizen Kane.” After a few Blue Moons, the 20-deep line to the bathroom doesn’t seem quite so horrendous, and combatting film snobs about their greatest movie of all time is sporting good fun.

Hello, I do believe your blog may be having web browser compatibility
problems. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,
when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Apart from that, excellent site!
“Dengue fever rising in South-East Asia”, on M&C Health – Monsters and Critics (online) -.
There is no definite treatment for or vaccine
to prevent dengue fever. The Board has been persistent in its position that it had been guaranteed by
the Punjab government that the tournament can be held in Lahore exclusive of any
problem and that there would be proper preventive procedures taken to keep
the players safe.
First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do
not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
