I am going to blog more. I am. I need to blog. I miss it. Facebook is fun and I can be snarky and all but I miss actually sitting down at the computer and writing. So I’m going to give it a shot.
Anyway, what brings me back? Yet again, I opened mouth and inserted foot.
Conversation with co-workers on the way to lunch.
Christy: Oh, hey, the liquor store is having a sale. We should go buy beer.
This leads to a conversation about what our favorite liquors are.
C: I don’t really like hard liquor anymore. I had a perfectly made G&T and it tasted like crap.
Jessica A: Well, yeah. Gin. Blech!
Dana: I second your blech! (or something similar to that).
Brett: I like gin.
JA: It tastes like pine needles.
D (snorts): Uh, yeah, that’s what it’s made from (well, actually it’s juniper now that I think of it).
C: What’s your favorite, Brett?
Both Jess and I wince.
D: I haven’t had tequila since I almost threw up on the cute guy I had a crush on when we were playing spin the bottle.
Why? Why do I open my mouth? I know this just leads to trouble.
C (incredulous): Were you 15?
D (sheepishly): No. 28.
Later tonight, I was talking about Beth and mentioned this to her. I told her some day I’m going to write a book of really dumb things that I’ve done that probably no one else has done. She said she could probably add a few stories as well and that some of them are even written down.
Beth and I were talking the other night (April 16th because it’s now April 21st) and I decided I am going to go through this blog and pick some of my favorite stories. Stories that I will clean-up and think about publishing some day. And, I am going to try to blog more. I promise.
