Women that drink...cheers
like ‘The Real Housewives’ or ‘My Super Sweet (Spoiled) Sixteen’ (instead of ‘Leave it to Beaver’ and ‘I Love Lucy’), being more successful or making more money than your spouse, resorting to finding love on dating websites, the price of a salon visit, the price of gas, the price of food, the price of EVEYTHING! No wonder we drink. Every one of my friends is going through something stressful in their life right now. As a nation, we are hung over looking to get drunk again-the champagne bubble of the 80’s and 90’s has burst, the high that came with living large is gone, the martini glass of excessive cash flow and spending has dried up, and the punch drunk face of America is now a mean drunk. We are all coping by turning our attentions back to the simple things in life, but the continued uncertainty lingers like a shadow. And so we drink (responsibly of course). We drink to bond, to forget, to unwind, to relax, and to stay sane. I say cheers my sisters, have that glass of wine, you deserve it!
