Things I Can Do Without – Liquid Courage
It bothers me when I know someone I cannot have normal, rational sober conversations with. I have fallen victim to a drunken confrontation, phone call or text regarding some matter that would be better dealt with sober. I understand that some people have a difficult time expressing how they feel. I am typically not one of those people. Being meek about what I feel/think is not something typically associated with me. “Brutally honest” is a far better description.
When someone can’t have a conversation with me when they are sober I have a difficult time taking them seriously. I have had men tell me they loved me when they were drunk. I’ve had men tell me they hated me when they were drunk. I’ve dated guys who only call me and discuss anything of actual relevance or importance when they are drunk.
Maybe I am just drawn to alcoholics… I guess that would add some validity to the whole idea of women dating men like their fathers. That will have to be its own post. It really isn’t just guys. I know girls who are completely introvert but get a few drinks in them and they behave like they were raised by animals. I am always amazed by the phenomenon that can transform a mild mannered person into a big fat douche.
If you have anything worth saying or doing, if you feel strongly about it, then say or do it sober because if the only time you have any kind of backbone or personality is when you are drunk then maybe you should just stay home. When you try to have an important conversation or really want express yourself and you are wasted no sober person is going to take you seriously. It also makes you seem like you’re chicken shit.
