OK, so we know that 2+2=4. We can count up the number of meals we’ve eaten in a day, or how many children one has. But when it comes to a night of drinking…numbers, counting, math goes out the door real quick!! If I were to count as the drinking occurs, my nights would probably go very different.
Take for instance last nite. I go out with colleagues from a previous job for dinner and have a cocktail at the bar (1). Once at the dinner table, we order a bottle of Italian Rose. (It was delish by the way!) There were 2 of us drinking(1+3). With dessert, they brought us shots of -cello…think limoncello just in a strawberry flavor (1+3+1). Total = 5
Later that evening I hang out with the girls. We stop at one restaurant for food. I’m not hungry so I just order a beer (5+1). Who wants to just watch her eat?! Total = 6 We then go next door to a bar/lounge. I order a Scotch & Soda (6+1). A guy walks in with some dude and his wife, looks at us, buys us all shots of Patron (6+1+1). We sit awhile longer, so I order another Scotch & Soda (6+1+1+1). I guess the guy wants some conversation to go with the previous shot, so he walks back over to talk to the group. Someone gives him the side-eye so he gets another round of Patron shots sent to the table (6+1+1+1+1). After looking at the empty glasses on the table, I order a glass of water.
Grand Total Drinks = 10
