… When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.
– Frank Sinatra
Okay, so I removed the word ‘sorry’, because I’m not sorry, and if someone doesn’t drink that’s just great, and obviously healthy, but somehow the sentiment of this quote resonates with me.
I’m not a big drinker, but I do enjoy a drink. I’m a person who is actually more interesting, fun and outgoing when I’ve had a drink, and unlike many others I don’t get the slightest bit aggressive, quite the opposite in fact. I’m not afraid to have a sing, or dance, or tell a joke, or be loud (without being annoying and rude), all things I would be far too shy to do when sober (and normal).
Having a drink, whether it is wine, Jack Daniels or a fizzy Malibu/Bacardi and coke is my way of letting the fun side out. Nothing more.
