Alas, dear readers, my misguided attempt to not drink was destroyed Friday night when my dear friends, The Nice Jenkins, played at Pianos. Too much fun to be had without a libation. However! I did go down valiently after having one (tiny) Shirley Temple- soooo I can place a smidgeon of blame on the bartender for not making me a much bigger non-alcoholic cocktail in a proper pint glass, thus ensuring that I would have something to drink and take my mind off of whiskey for longer than 30 seconds. Valuable lessons learned during my six days of sobriety:
1. I'm not fun without alcohol
2. Not drinking during the work week is a very viable (and enjoyable) option.
3. I can never be Amish.
4. Spending Saturday hungover, eating junk food and watching The War with a furry creature is a pretty good way to while away a rainy day.
5. The Nice Jenkins are awesome! And getting awesomer all the time.
