"I woke up and watched TV and got zucchini bread. I wanted to watch more TV but then we had to pick up the living room and our bedroom then it was time to pick mommy up. When we got there she was sick. We love the car-a coaster but mommy was too sick and daddy said we had to go slow. The next morning mommy felt better but we had to be quiet because her head hurt and she wore her big sunglasses. Daddy promised we could go for a car-a coaster ride some other time."
This lovely and telling news report was from the weekend that I attended a fundraiser called Kegs and Eggs. I am pretty sure that Charlotte's 2nd grade teacher may now have serious concerns about Charlotte's mother being a drunk.
In my sad defense:
I had a very mild college experience and was new to playing drinking games
I have only been completely shmammered to the point of throwing up one other time in my life
I was raising money for a VERY VERY good cause
I started drinking at 10am and didn't eat much
I am an idiot
We did in fact raise a lot of money for a very very good cause and I think that was in part because I was so good at cups (a lively drinking game)
I need to play softball to get my competitiveness out and not cups
I am an idiot
Luckily I have an amazing husband who told the kids I had the flu, picked me up, knew to bring a bowl and threw it out the window to me when he pulled up so that I didn't have to puke in my friend's bushes, put me to bed and kept the kids quiet the next morning. It took me over a month to even consider wanting to have a drink with dinner again. Someday I am sure Charlotte will put together that her mommy was not in fact car sick after attending kegs and eggs and when she does I will honestly tell her......I raised A LOT of money for a really really good cause and took up softball.
with a name tag that had my husbands phone number on it
and instuctions to call him if I got lost.
I was responsible enough to at least think ahead.
