So, I tell people often that I am "allergic" to red wine. I'm not sure if that's technically the truth, but it ALWAYS makes me very sick when I drink it and I have never had a good experience with it. Unfortunately for me, last night I drank some. I had already had several beers and so when the person I was having dinner with got a bottle of red wine (after I specifically said I was "allergic") I was easily persuaded to drink some...two glasses to be exact. Big glasses.

Now, I wish I could say that I ended up having a great drinking experience and from now on red wine will be my drink of choice...but...well....

Suffice it to say that I actually don't remember the last couple hours of my evening -- I mean, I remember them but there are definitely holes. Also, I woke up sick as a dog and spent the entire morning laying on the couch clutching a plastic bag in case I needed to puke. I am more bothered though by the holes in my memory, because, as M. pointed out, I'm probably repressing something I did or said that is not just inappropriate but WILDLY inappropriate. I hope that's not the case, but I'm scared it might be.

The whole thing is kind of funny, but it also makes me sad because I have really spent the last year or so trying very hard to dial back my drinking behavior, and I feel like last night I sort of inadvertently did something that may have caused me to behave in a way that I don't want to be known for.

Anyway, I will clearly never, ever, ever let someone talk me into the dirty satan wine again, and hopefully I'll start feeling better later today. Right now I want someone to shoot me.
