“My head is spinning”

Anyone who has ever had an alcoholic drink we me before knows that I don’t hold my liquor very well. As the saying goes, I am your typical light weight. My roommates have been trying to “toughen” me up this past year, but it really hasn’t been working. It’s not that I don’t like alcohol, and I’m not opposed to drinking in moderation at all; I just get so dizzy. Several times on first dates, the guys have ordered a bottle of really expensive wine and told me to drink half and one time I said, “yeah, I can’t do that.” Sometimes I feel bad, but what’s a girl to do?

We make some really good drinks at home a lot. A few weeks ago my roommate Therese made fresh homemade mango mojitos. They were amazing!! Well after half a drink they are used to hearing me say,  “My head is spinning.” They usually laugh because they know it’s coming.

Well yesterday I was at the Hospital getting some tests done and they needed to draw five vials of blood. After the second one my head started to spin and I told her “my head is spinning.” She said I would be fine, but then I couldn’t hear her, started to shake, and I couldn’t see after the third vial. “It really is spinning,” I said and that’s the last thing I remember. I woke up in a bed and the tech was right there and said, “It really was spinning huh?” “Yes, it was,” I said. I smiled and thought of all the times my sweet roommates have heard me see that. It was kind of funny actually and they said the next time they would just lay me down to take blood.

Oh and tonight we are all going wine tasting for Mariu’s birthday. At least I’m not driving…

Have a great weekend! And don’t forget to laugh at yourself!
