Wow, what a week! Am I right? We’re all so busy that I actually find the conversation about being busy to be exceedingly tedious. However, when the busy-ness of the week so thoroughly compounds into 5:20 pm on Friday that I can’t decide between which of my two favorite pastimes – playing tennis or imbibing – to engage in, then I know the over-wrought topic of the busy week deserves reflection. Also, I know I have disgusting first world problems.
Of course, I can play tennis and then have a drinkypoo. That’s my usual course of action. But see, I really like day-drinking and 5:27 pm is just about the perfect time of day to day-drink.
And I did do that extra spin class this week…
OK! You convinced me! You’re such a bad influence.
What’s your Friday 5:32 pm cocktail? Here’s mine, this week…
