In this rather depressing article in the LA Times, much advice is given on what holiday drinks to avoid. According to the experts quoted in the article, if you drink too much you will frighten small dogs and children the next mornng upon awakening, and also will do things like raise your insulin levels and commit murder on some of your collagen. Oh, and heaven forbid, they will expand your waistline.
Articles like this really piss me off.
Somehow they managed to suck every ounce of fun out of the holidays, besides pushing almost every hot-button issue a woman has about her looks. You’ll have bloodshot eyes! Your face and body will be puffy! You might turn beet red and have to slink out of the room in shame! And you’ll get fat, too!
Articles like this make me want to go and have many, many drinks just to horrify people like Patricia Wexler and Paula Lambert.
Then I will visit them the next morning and taunt them with my expanded waistline and doughy, collagen-less face!
Suffice it to say, I’m guessing good old Patricia and Paula aren’t invited to many holiday parties this year.
