Day 12â€“ Tell us about the first time you got drunk or tipsy (as far as you can rememberâ€¦) Do you ever stop yourself from telling too much when you write on-line or do you think you tell too much?Â
Oh, I am so not a drinker.Â For example, I didn’t ever drink illegally.Â I was twenty-one before I started drinking.Â I can’t really remember the first time I got drunk.Â Mainly because I didn’t really do it that often and I rarely got drunk.Â Occasionally, I got drunk on purpose just to see what it was like (maybe three times ever?) but it really wasn’t my thing.
I can remember getting tipsy off three sips of a cosmo once.Â Matt and I were at this big work thing (this was when we worked together) and we were with a bunch of colleagues that were mostly twenty to thirty years older than we were.Â (As in, I think the next youngest person there was only fifteen years older than we were.)Â (Why were we with all these older people?Â We were just that good.)Â And I think I was twenty-four or something like that.Â So we were being very careful to appear adult.Â We were also at a two week long conference and we were mindful of how much money it costs to stay in a hotel and eat out three meals a day for two weeks.Â (The other people at this conference were not, they must have spent four times the money we spent.)Â So I hadn’t eaten much all day and we went to this big work party at night.Â I ordered a cosmo and it was realllly strong.Â I took three sips, my head went fuzzy, and I put my drink down and started shoving down appetizers.Â It was not a good time for me to appear drunk.
I don’t really think I tell too much online.Â It occasionally bothers me when people I know in the 3D world see everything I put here and then expect me to feel the same way when they see me the next day.Â So that occasionally stops me from writing deep emotional stuff here.Â (But really, it doesn’t.Â I have the private blog for when I feel that way and I can’t think of the last time I felt like I had to use it.)
