31 Days - March 17: Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
Thursday, March 17, 2011
Today, Spark appropriately gives us advice about drinking alcohol (I know, I know, St. Patrick's Day is NOT all about drinking...but let's face it, that's what most of us think of when we think of the day). The advice, of course, is about moderation... One daily drink for women, two for men, is okay and might acutally prevent certain diseases, but even occasional binge drinking is bad for you..
My days of sloshing down green colored beer is way in my rear-view mirror, but certainly I enjoy an occasional glass of wine..but this is pretty much a non-issue for me. For every time I think "oh, I'd love to have a glass of wine tonight when the dust settles," I probably have it maybe one out of every 10 times I think it. By the end of the day, my biggest goal is to get myself upstairs and away from the food, and into the bed..
But I will raise a glass of imaginary beer today to all my Irish and wanna be Irish friends!! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
