Alcohol and drinking is something that’s on my mind a lot now that I am dating someone for whom drinking is religiously uncool. But, to be fair, alcohol and drinking was a huge issue when I was married too. I would go so far as to say it was an even bigger issue. In that case, it was okay for him but not for me and I ended up feeling really shitty a lot of the time. In comparison, though The Egyptian has a super-legit reason for not drinking, he does not make me feel like an asshole when I do it.
Mutual respect. I dig it.
I’m not gonna lie. I happen to think that alcohol is pretty great. After all, in a world without alcohol, you’d never get a series of text messages like this*:
Drunbk I. Niss you
