very bad mother

I grabbed that shiny bottle, cold from the refrigerator, where it was waiting for someone to imbibe. I popped it open. And then I brought it to my lips. Guzzling with the refrigerator still open, hiding behind the doors so no one could see me.

I felt bad. I shouldn’t be guzzling. And from the bottle? Had winter vacation driven me to this?

The foot tall bottle swung in the air as I tipped it all the way back and felt the last bits of bubbly dance on my taste buds. It was gone. A little hiccup from the bubbles escaped.

And then I quickly and quietly went to the recycling bin and stashed it, for no one to find. I felt so gluttonous. So bad. What a lush…

(thank goodness I bought two, the kids would have so killed me if they knew I finished the last of it)

Happy New Year!
