…and I stayed sober through it all…somehow…

This weekend…ahhh…this weekend. Lemme tell ya, aside from my son and my wonderful wife everyone at the wedding we went to was drinking heavily. Besides the awkward nature of the event due to my mother and father being in the same vicinity and my brother stressing over how to pay for a wedding and honeymoon that he had, of course, not budgeted well for was my own silly situation of being the one who everyone there knew could destroy the bar single handedly, not drinking. My father came up to me at the reception and despite my having told him for days about my not drinking and how different things were for me, said “you gonna have a beer?” I looked at him and said “Uh, I don’t drink anymore. Not even on special occasions?” he asked, tilting his head. “You don’t really get how this thing works do you?” I asked and walked away. He should know though, having had a brother, a father and a grandfather that all drank themselves to death. Oh well. Anyway, I got through it. Somehow. I am currently running on about 20 hours of sleep over the past 5 days. Grrr. Bed calls…
