Promise me you'll never get drunk
Slight disclaimer: despite my name meaning, literally, "my vineyard", I'm not much of a drinker. And I get that some folks might want to toast in the new year, or whatever, without worrying about running afoul of a DUI-seeking Officer Bob. More power to whoever has the good sense to drink responsibly. Or not at all.
But still. Call me odd (go ahead, you know you want to) but I don't much see the point of faux-anything. Don't want to drink? Have some OJ. Can't handle the caffeine in your coffee? Green tea beats the bejeebers out of artificially decaffeinated java any day. We're so intent on having our sugar-free cake and eating it, too, that we close ourselves off from whatever else may be out there.
That, and this stuff probably tastes like swill. Where's my apple juice?
Your turn: Am I being needlessly curmudgeonly? What would Andy Rooney have said?
One more thing: We're drinking up this week. Head here to be part of the Thematic goodness.
