Happy Friday kids! Apologies for the following less-than-exciting post, I’m in a funk today.
Last night I met up with Leo and his friend who had entered a beerpong tournament at one of the University clubs here in the city. Note: this is in no way whatsoever a sober activity. I remained sober of course, but I don’t recommend this as “sober fun.” I hung out with Leo’s friend’s girlfriend while the boys lost twice to two female teams. The females were apparently cheating but since I don’t play beerpong anymore I don’t know all the rules nor do I care to learn them. I saw a friend from high school at the tournament – newly engaged…awesome. There was free food, so that was about the only highlight of the event. Then we wandered over to a local pub and watched some March Madness. I am still in first place in my pool! Except I only have one team left in the Final Four so there is no way that I will win the pool. No fun.
It’s not easy dating someone who drinks. Some days I deal with it well and sometimes I don’t. I’m not sure whether it’s because I’m jealous he can drink and I can’t or if I simply don’t like how drunk people act. Luckily he rarely gets “drunk” in front of me anymore but last night was borderline. I could ask him to stop drinking because I don’t like it, but he’s not an alcoholic and that’s not really fair of me. I also know that controlling someone else’s actions only leads to resentment. So for now, if he drinks I require him to brush his teeth and rinse well with mouthwash before he kisses me. And if he wants to go out and act like a crazy 21 year old with the boys, he can go without me!
Tonight: Gluten Free Chinese Food and baking gluten free pumpkin pie with Leo.
Saturday: Bridesmaid dress alterations and Physique57. No plans for the evening yet, anyone want to hang out??
Sunday: Studying in the morning and then dinner at Leo’s club in the suburbs.
Last but certainly not least: HAPPY 4 YEARS of Sobriety to Nic!
What’s your sobriety date? I’m going to put together a page of anniversaries (pseudonyms of course)!
