So…too make up for making you read my monthly ramblings, have a drink on me! Well you’ll have to make it yourself, seeing as we are only internet friends. I would totally make this for you if you were here.
All I seem to drink is water. Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s good for me, but a girl needs some flavor in her life. And since I’m alcohol free, now now, let’s not jump to conclusions, I’m not pregnant, and I am not a recovering alcoholic. No, my affliction is much worse… I’m allergic… ya seriously!
It’s actually quite awful, I have a couple of sips, and I’m sneezing like someone has locked me in a room of ragweed. There are a couple of benefits, I’m the permanent designated driver, I don’t have to worry about the extra calories, and at least I didn’t have this problem when I was in college. I mean is there anything worse than being the sober one at the party!!
Let’s be honest I hate driving, and I just replace the extra calories with cake, and I’m still the sober one at the party, It’s just not college. But have no fear, instead of wallowing in self-pity as margarita season approaches, I have found a few awesome alcohol free drinks, like this one.
This is so refreshing on a hot day, by the pool. Now if I could only get a pool boy willing to make these drinks for me. Oh and you can totally put some alcohol in it, for those of you who I’ll be driving around!
