went out for the same shitty chicken dinner. i ordered tonic to go with my quarter chicken meal.”i’ll have a tonic please.”
And the waitress is like “gin and tonic?”
me: “no. tonic.”
“You want perrier or soda?”
“no i want tonic … just tonic… in a glass with a piece of lime. and a straw.”
oh those weird tourists, they ask for the strangest things.
Then i stopped at the store and bought regular cheerios (we don’t have them in europe), and a big 24-pack of tonic in cans …
Hey, i’ve got 2 cans in the freezer right now.
yeah. that’s me. chilling my tonic. Living on the wild side…
On the bright side, think how much more it would have been with alcohol added to the bill 😉
Hey Belle, how much for the shitty chicken dinner this time round?
hahahaha. $37, dinner for two …
Ha ha…nuff said!
I was real wild today at the in laws bbq…I walk up to the house with a pitcher of homemade lemonade with floating lemon slices and my sis in law says ‘oooh…what did you make for us?’…thinkin’ it was a yummy boozey thing. I say ‘um lemonade’. She says ‘oh…really just lemonade…well I’ve got good stuff that I’ll make for us with booze in it’. I said ‘um…no thanks’. She gives me a weird look. I say ‘I quit drinking 11 months ago’. She says ‘oh I didn’t know that’. Of course she didn’t know…I didn’t tell her. I said with humor and a smile ‘did you know that shit is addictive?’ She didn’t know what to do…laugh or be concerned. She let it go. I drank my wild club soda with a splash of lemonade and lemon slices. She drank something called X Rated…it was pink, in a pretty frosted bottle. Her husband had way too many beers and had a mean edge to him and was way more hyper and inappropriate than all of us not drinking. I wanted to go home SO bad…cause I was flat out not having a good time…but not because I wasn’t drinking….cause they were drinking! Freakin’ holidays!
LOL – how about this one? A girl goes into a “crafty cocktail bar”… you know, the ones that make their own bitters, smash things in glasses, etc. Girl says “do you have some special non-alcoholic selections?” Server says….”uh… no” Girl says, “do you have ginger beer” Server says “yes, but that has alcohol in it.” Girl says…. “uh…. no, I don’t think so.” Server checks, bring ginger beer, and girl sips happily. Sheesh, I wonder what would happen if I ordered a non-alcoholic manhattan – Ha!
Oh yeah. That’s wild. But not as wild as Trop A Rocka Diet Snapple. Yep, that’s me goin’ a little crazy here. 🙂
