Distractions

This morning I woke up and found myself unwittingly cast as a supporting actor on our own family version of "Intervention". It's kept me away from the blog all day. Suffice it to say that NOBODY should ever... EVER... accept a drink from a strange man. If you do you might actually die from the fucking morphine they slipped in your drink. And if you don't die you will fail the drug test you take two days later (completely coincidental) and your doctor will think you are a drug addict. And, really, no amount of explaining will convince them otherwise and pretty soon your whole family will begin to wonder if you are actually a drug addict or just an irresponsible 21 year old (it is sometimes very hard to discern between the two) who would, in fact, both wear a "I'm 21" birthday tiara and then accept drinks from creepy strangers.

Been there, done that (21 year old except drinking for creepy strangers that is). Oh to be young again!

Saradru I'm right there with you.. it's a wonder I'm alive.
I kept trying to remind myself of all the stupid things I did so as not to get completely sucked in to the craziness today.
Family drama... got to love it.

My head is spinning just from reading that. Egad. But, hey, whatever it takes to distract you from the moving stress, right?

Mrs Furious said...

Deb,
I was on the phone regarding this situation with various players for 5 straight hours!
Everyone had to take turns being on either the "this is too crazy to believe" side of things to the "this is so crazy you couldn't even make it up" side of things.
I've settled on the "this is so crazy you couldn't make it up" side.
And I live in fear of when my kids are "of age"!

Mr Furious said...

That's why we're going to make sure they're nerds.

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F,
I don't think it is possible for them not to be...

titus said...

coming from a TRUE nerd, lol, I have never even had a drink bought by someone else, so no problem here... hahahah.

Titus,
not uber weird... I obsessively read the blog of an 82 year old woman for 5 straight days until I had read every single post start to finish... now that is a little weird...

I'm going to answer all your questions in this post once I get Baby to bed for her nap (I hope I didn't just jinx myself on the nap!).

It is really frightening to look back at the things we do in youth... As a nerd myself, I can verify that we mangage to have our share of poor judgement/hair raising experiences too. That's why in addition to raising my sons as sheltered nerds, I am also never ever letting them out of my sight! Oh yes, they are going to love puberty and beyond. Let the good times roll.

Mrs Furious said...

Gigs,
I hear ya.
I did some pretty stupid things and put myself in some pretty potentially dangerous situations and I was not technically "stupid" or a partier by any means.
Kid's going to be living at home for college ;)

titus,
re: the crazy fake wheat bread.... YES that would drive me freaking crazy!! I don't (thankfully) know anyone who has ever tried to claim it was healthier ... I'd be going crazy inside. Mr F was trying to convince me the Bays english muffins we get come in wheat... and I had to inform him that that isn't actually "whole wheat". I'd rather just eat white bread than fake "wheat" bread... what is the point?!

as for your food no-no list..
You've got me beat... we still drink coffee (and plenty of it). Ever since Baby came along we drink more than ever :(

Interesting you mention the Juicy-Juice. We don't drink juice... mostly just try to drink water... BUT I've been dying to know since recently watching a Jon and Kate +8 (do you watch this ever?) and clearly Juicy Juice is a sponsor and J&K try to only buy organic... is Juicy Juice now organic? I used to love Juicy Juice fruit punch.... and I would buy it as a treat if it is organic now.

HOly shit. So many times I wake up and thank my lucky stars and sweet baby Jesus that I'm alive. Sad thing is that I'm far from 21, yet I still take drinks from strangers. However, I try to make sure I see them coming from the bartender. Then again, half the time these days, the bartender is involved.
