Wow, because I have been in the dark, moaning and complaining about my cruel thrust into the world of the migraine, (or me-grain if your British and, by the way, did you know if you are sick on the Internet cute men will offer to come over and hug you and if I had known this I would have begun the bitching earlier... like, maybe my 2nd blog post...) I have missed the completely odd and strangely scary controversy of Playdate with Cocktails. Or, as Meredith Vierra so cleverly put it, "Beers and Babies"(barf).
Apparently, having a glass of wine when your children are around is a bad thing. A very bad thing.
I have 3 children. They are always around. I have asked them to leave so that I can get all boozy-floozy but they have yet to take the hint...
And my friends have children.
The 3 children and the 4 dogs and the friends' children and sometimes the 1 husband are the reason I need a goddamn drink.
I suppose if I have a gaggle of women over and we get shitfaced while the kids swim in the pool and we decide to drunk dial all of our ex-boyfriends, it would be a wise suggestion to switch to diet Pepsi, but ohmygod since when is a bottle of wine shared between 4 women (do the math, that is 1 glass a piece) even on the radar, let alone the fucking Today Show?
Is there a follow up piece about dads who drink a beer (or 2) at the Indian Guide Father Son Afternoon Out at Angels Stadium?
Thanks so much for all the great headache-from-hell solutions... because I take coumadin most OTC are out as are many prescriptions... so, I have started adding fish oil supplements (thanks Kayce) and limiting dairy (thanks Anon) and keeping a stash of dark chocolate in the upper reaches of my pantry (thanks Auds).
