I Love Wine

I did it again.

I drank too much last night.

I wasn’t trying to get drunk, I just really love wine.  And when you’re at a social gathering, it’s just so much more comfortable to have a drink in your hand, and yes, I could have opted for water, but that wasn’t out.  I would have actually had to ask for it…

So here I am, another Sunday afternoon, nursing a headache.  I was laying in my darkened bedroom trying to take a nap, when my lecture to myself starting playing through my head and I thought it might be helpful to get it down on “paper.”

Honestly, I don’t even think I was drunk last night.  I think I’m developing an allergy to wine, or maybe it’s just old age, but it seems like I’m inevitably hung over the next day if I have more than one or two glasses.

Which, I suppose, means I should cut myself off at one or two glasses…

It doesn’t help that I unknowingly ate raw chicken (long story, but I do mean raw) and Ray’s fix was to drink alcohol because it would kill the germs.  Man, I hope it worked.  All I know is my stomach’s rolling and I don’t know if it’s Sauvignon or salmonella.

Next Saturday night I will do better.  Father M may be coming to dinner.  Perhaps that will help my restraint?
