I decided not to drink for the month of February and while I was hoping that maybe new things would happen or improve, nothing really has changed (health-wise). In fact, my insomnia seems to be worse and my level of thirstiness is elevated (diabetes?).
In addition to the no change in health, people would make comments about how I looked bored or annoyed when out… (wait, people say that to me all the time) be it during a lunch, a restaurant, or at a bar/club.
A collection of things people have said to me when I said I wasn’t drinking:
“Make her drink, she’s looks bored.”
“Are you okay? What’s the matter?”
“You’re not drinking? Boring.”
“I’m leaving you’re not drinking.”
“You look like you’re not having a good time.”
“Did you fail yet?”
“You’re what? How are you NOT drinking?”
“Are you pregnant. Oh my gawd, you’re pregnant!”
A giant slip and slide is coming to NYC in August. I want to go!
Me at 10AM: “I want BBQ.”
Me at 2PM: “I want BBQ.”
Me at 4PM: “I don’t want to go to yoga, I want BBQ.”
Me at 7PM: “I’m going to make arrozcaldo and mac & cheese.”
8PM – Go grocery shopping, put groceries away.
Brian at 8:30PM: “Want to go get ramen? My treat.”
Me at 8:30PM: “UHHHH OKAY.”
Went to Totto Ramen East with Brian (Labs) and Brian (Park). Two Brians!
All three of us got the Spicy Ramen with roast pork and boiled egg. Park said to get the rayu (spicy sesame oil) on the side… that way you can adjust the heat. So smart!
Btw, Totto Ramen Midtown East > Midtown West location. Broth is better, portion is bigger, but space is limited!
Park never went to Momofuku before, so Brian insisted we go and get crack pie slices, Cereal Milk shakes (not me!), and some cookies. Ended up buying 20 cookies. Like, WTF.
Literally went HAM tonight. And I’ve been to Momofuku two days in a row. Horrible.
And P.S. One of my very favorite movies is A Hard Day’s Night.
