a spirited observation

I've noticed that people drink a lot more when I'm not around.

I dunno if it's because I'm not such a big drinker myself, or because my absence creates a void that only alcohol can fill. But either way, there are generally grave consequences that involve vomit and headaches to say the least. I often hear something to the effect of "this wouldn't have happened if you were here."

Of course, I don't suffer these consequences, because I'm not there. Maybe I miss some fun, maybe some drama, but I'm probably enjoying myself in a different way while others are getting plastered.

And wow, reading that, I notice I sound a little too preachy at the end there. I'm not passing judgment, as I do partake in a bit of the drink myself. I just don't do it as much as others do. And I never vomit the next morning.

Ditto dear. Not preachy at all. Twins again. Nothin' wrong with a a little alcohol induced debauchery once in a while but I'm usually the one who's always in control of herself and doesn't feel sick or like an idiot the next day too.

It is kinda nice to gloat about though, isn't it?

"or because my absence creates a void that only alcohol can fill." That is the funniest thing I've read in weeks!

Thanks! I was hoping someone would catch that.

I never imbibe in the alcoholic beverages myself, so I hear ya when you say that you are having fun in another way while others are getting plastered. However, I do not enjoy spending time with people who are wasted. I'm just too uptight.

Yeah, I definitely hate being the only sober one. It's not that we're uptight, it's just far less fun to see what idiots people are and have nobody to remark it to.

I loved hanging out with you because it very rarely involved bars. (Oddly enough, we still ended up there sometimes.)
