Playing the Drunk Card

I have never been a big drinker. I was always so goofy sober that the idea of being drunk in public was not appealing. I mean, if I was that weird on an average day, getting drunk did not really seem like a good idea.

We just spent two days this past weekend swimming and grilling out at our neighbors' house for the 4th of July holiday. Between the heat and watching the kids in the pool, drinking more than a few sips of wine was just not going to happen. I needed to have all my faculties in order. Therefore, when I made a superbly inglorious attempt to seat myself in the hammock I couldn't even play the drunk card when I dumped my bad self straight onto the ground.

Hubbie got a good laugh over it and asked how much I'd had to drink. I told him the sad thing was that I was just that stupid sober. I didn't injure anything bigger than my pride, but sometimes it is nice to have a reason for making an ass of oneself.

Oh, yeah. Did that at the twins' second birthday party. Stone-cold sober. With kids and parents and family in attendance. I was mortified.

You're in good company, hon. :)

@CMGD: I don't think anyone else saw me, so there is that consolation.

@Creepy: LOL I can see why.

@Joe: Wow! I think this is the best comment I have ever received. Totally saving it in my Inbox.

Being straight edge most of my adult life (if not all), I just want to say, "I feel your pain."

I know what it's like not to have an excuse.

Hell. I'm sober all the time, yet people think I'm a drunkard. I use that to my advantage over and over again. There is no shame.
