So Sunday night Ben and I went to see the Hunger Games. Were home by 5:30. Took G on a cocktail walk (we had cocktails. he did not.) Then I decided I'd make myself a vodka soda with lemon. It tasted a little off, but after the first few minutes I didn't notice.
I also engaged in some ambien taking upon bed time. (not a ton of drinks here, people. just to be clear.)
Then my child screamed from 2-5.
Then slept ON me, In "mama bed," which means great sleep for him--less for me. Up. dressed. to work. FEEL AWFUL. Like, hungover. Which seems odd. I blamed it on the not sleeping and guess I didn't eat enough or something (no ambien eating for me.) AWFUL, by the way. awful.
This morning Ben comes into the bathroom while I'm getting dressed. Asked where I found the vodka. I told him. He asked if it was in a glass bottle. I say yes. He laughs and says he has figured out the mystery--that was everclear.
So, basically... don't drink everclear. Unless you are in college. Or you have intestines made of steal. Or are promised you will get to sleep. From now on, I think we need to be more clear about our labeling.
By the way--everclear, soda and lemon--only tastes bad for the first few sips. Then you don't notice the burning.
