Last night I was all set to escape domestic blissdom for some much needed time with my womenfolk friends. Alas, plans fell apart at the last minute due to machine malfunctions at my man’s shop. I was bummed, but such are the realities of self-employment. He and that shop are what provide our living, so I must accept the inconvenient moments when they arise. (Or at least keep the bitching to a minimum.)
The evening was salvaged, however, thanks to my neighbor bringing me the BEST homemade chocolate chip cookies. (That recipe will be mine!) My offer of a glass of wine in return for her kindness turned into a playdate for our dogs in the backyard. Which turned into her introducing me to grape vodka and 7-Up. On a Monday night.
Did I mention she’s in her 20s and has no children? I mean, at what other time in life can you drink things like that without fear of repercussions? I’m so out of the loop, I didn’t even know grape vodka existed, much less that it tastes like Welch’s Grape soda when mixed with 7-Up. At any rate, flirting with danger by time traveling back to my 20s and drinking some silly girlie cocktails on the patio turned out to be quite fun.
AND I woke up hangover-free this morning. Probably because I was responsible enough to drink lots of water and put some food in my stomach before bed. Welcome to the wisdom of your 30s.
Later on this morning though, while handling my domestic business and busting out laundry while listening to old school Snoop Dogg on my iPod, I began to wonder if flavored vodkas might be more ghetto than girlie. Which got me thinking about this awesome video.
I crack up every time I watch this video. If it makes you laugh, make sure you pass it on and share the humor with others.
Here’s to sippin’ silly drinks and laughing more,
