Don't lie! At some point in your life, you've spoken this phrase as well:
"I'm only going out for a drink or two tonight."
Maybe you have an early morning; or perhaps haven't been feeling too well. Or maybe you are just trying to be responsible!
My intention was to go and have a couple of drinks, spend some "quality" moments with the guys, and then head home at a decent hour.
Now, for those of you who don't know the Kit Kat Lounge here in Chicago, they have a plethora of different martinis on their menu. AND...if you go on a Tuesday or Sunday night, they are only $5.
That's right! I said FIVE dollars.
Martini's on Clearance!
Which is DANGEROUS! (even though I'm sure they use cheap, cheap vodka on these nights!) But I was determined to stay strong tonight.
So, we order our first round. I get the Coconut Cream Pie martini, which is a thicker drink, thinking it would sustain me longer.
Nope...it was like dessert. Gulp, gulp...gone.
Clearly, I had to order another one almost immediately!
I ordered the 'Flirtini,' which is a champagne cocktail with pineapple, and other good stuff. However, when the drink arrived, it tasted so different this time. I looked at Justin and said, "oh, i don't think they made this right..."
But of course I kept sipping on it! haha...
Then finally the manager walks over and said, "I'm sorry...I believe we may have given you the wrong martini..."
Umm, does the Pope hate gay people? Duh! Of course you did...
So, they delivered a brand new drink to me. It was like getting 2 for 1!
Yay! more friends!!!
I think this calls for another...(I am losing count at this point)...round!
We all drank, chatted, laughed, got caught up with each other, and had a great time.
(My head may have been spinning a little, and my eyesight a little blurry...and my words 'potentially' slurring.)
So...even though my intention was to drink sensibly last night, and I actually didn't get home until closer to 1am on a school night (!), these are the nights with friends that you will always remember. So no regrets!
And hey...I woke up with NO headache this morning, and even got to work early!
Which means I'm NOT an alcoholic, right?....
