Question of the day: Okay, drinking experts... how is it that, after a few drinks – one can still feel relatively sober while still in the bar – and yet, you only realize that you’re quite soused once you’ve arrived home? Really, people – I’d love answers from you!
I’m not talking absolutely sloshed here – say, three glasses of wine, which is what I had last night while out with friends. But the soft lighting of the music-filled bar, compared to the bright light in my quiet apartment? That was enough to harsh my wine buzz, and get those bedspins started even before I hit the sack. What can I say, I’m a lightweight. A cheap drunk. A Two-Beer Betty.
Coming up over the next few days: a few first dates, then This Guy this weekend. Must keep it limited to one glass of wine per outing – especially for caloric reasons. The great Weight Loss Challenge is still on – only another pound and a half til I reach my initial 10-lb goal! Might go for another five after that.
