"Probably not responsible parenting"? I'm pretty sure the only way my sisters and brothers and I survived to adulthood was the large quantity - and I'm talking "should have bought stock" quantity - of Beefeater Gin my parents drank on a regular basis.
I know, right? And oh my god I remember the Beefeater! That and Bombay (maybe the precursor to Bombay Sapphire?). That's how it was then and parents smoked all the while and nobody batted an eye. But I also needed to keep it together for the bus ride home, and I am, surprisingly enough, a lightweight.
Omg do I love that you posted this on the internet. Wish we could sit and have a nightcap right now. I just got home from the bar where I had only 2 drinks and felt drunk and very, very randomly met a really cool Turkish millionaire. I haven't been updating the blog lately, but Nathan decided he was done with being married about 5 mos. ago and moved out so shit has been crazy around here.
I am so sorry, so terribly sorry. I would like to come over and give you a giant hug. I am certain shit has been crazy. And I would like to punch Nathan for you, although I do know that violence is not the solution to anything.
I love it when you drink gin!
Tell me about it.
