Sometimes I just have to laugh….
I went to a lovely Holiday Party at my friend’s house last week. What a great time!
I, of course, showed up with my Diet Coke can in hand…. Everyone else had mini wine bottles poured into beautiful glasses or a beer.
These situations are uncomfortable for me…. Only in the sense that I feel like I stand out – wine glasses, beer bottles, and then me – Diet Coke can!!!! I feel different, I am different. In this group of women, I am the ONLY one that does not drink and is not fixated on wine…. There is SO much talk about WINE!!!!. So, to fit in better, I came up with the simple solution of pouring my Coke into a glass!! It is not rocket science, but it took me a good half-hour to figure out…..
All settled in and enjoying the company, it was time for the White Elephant gift exchange…. This is what I won….
At first I was disappointed, but in the end I just had to laugh with my Diet Coke in hand!!!!!
Happy Safe, Sober Holidays to you!!!
