I am not much of a drinker these days
well not of alcoholic drinks anyway
I can't say the same for drinking tea of course
but alcohol and I aren't really bestest buddies
not that we were ever super close but we used to hang out occaisonally
and I always felt like we had a pleasant time together
but lately I just can't be bothered
which has to be a sign of advancing age and maturity right
stop snorting... the maturity thing has to kick in at some stage doesn't it...
Maybe I am not getting that much older, or that much more mature
perhaps there are other reasons for our fading friendship
maybe it is the fact that I have to get up at the crack of dawn
or that I always have 50 gazillion things to do
and get a headache if I even look at a drink
or maybe it is the fact that I can be best described as a glug glug woohoo drinker
Glug, glug woohoo means that after one drink I am feeling the love baby
I am relaxed and feeling the state of mild delusion that leads me to think I can do anything
like be coordinated enough to attempt to walk and talk at the same time
and my randomness filter completely fails me
which means I bring up ridiculous things that I have been storing away in my brain
like wondering aloud whether tea flavored popcorn would be delicious
or whether horses get jealous of zebras, or do they look down on them for being so flashy???
that is all bad enough, but add in that after two drinks I am asleep no matter where we are... restaurants... someone's house... doesn't matter where... I am out like a light
and not the pretty princess sleep
we are talking drooling, snuffling and snoring like a trucker asleep...
Which makes me think that maybe it is a good thing
that my glug glug woohoo days are behind me
because while you can get away with the trucker sleep when you are young and fresh
and your partner still spares your feelings
and so wonderfully lies and tells you that you looked adorable
now it is likely to lead to your nearest and dearest perhaps recording said trucker sleep
and using it as their ringtone...
One of the few drinks I am willing to risk becoming an embarrassing ringtone over
is this summer cider with berries and mango
mainly because it tastes all light and lovely at the end of a stinking hot day
and the clink of ice cubes and the icy touch of a tall glass instantly make me feel cooler
not to mention that it is pink and oh so inviting to draw
so in the interests of having this sketch for Paint Party Friday
I will be running the gauntlet of glug glug woohoo
not right now mind as it is middle of the morning
but later in the day in the cool of the evening...xx
Here is what I have been up to this week in the studio ...
