This is one of them.
Do you ever have those really loooooooong weeks where, come Friday, you're ready for a cocktail? Oh hell, who am I kidding? It's almost every day of the week that I feel like this, not just Fridays.
So the week 's been long, and you go to mix your favorite cocktail (in my case, it's anything with Stoli) and....doh! You're out of mixer. No tonic, no soda (or as the Easterners call it "seltzer" - whatevs!), no juice. What's a girl to do? There's no way in hell I'm going to the store -- I'm in my sweats that have food and cleaning stains on them (I *might* have changed my clothes today...), no makeup, and I have yet to take a shower in the last 18 hours. It's been a long week, after all.
Raid my kids' juice boxes.
There, I said it. Yes, I have been known to occasionally pop open a juice box to make myself a cocktail. I took a picture for you lovely people to prove it.
Classy, right? Notice, too, that I ALWAYS drink alcohol out of my trusty Star Trek glasses that I bought from the Air & Space Museum in Washington DC. Aren't they fabulous? (add some more class points for those babies)
Sorry kids! You'll have to drink water for school lunch today because mom drank all your juice boxes over the weekend. I'll pack you an extra Goldfish cracker to make up for it...
I've even had the balls to serve a Stoli-juice box cocktail to one of my new Stepford Wife friends when she came over. Desperate times calls for desperate measures, people. When she came over for a second time, she brought her own Crystal Light lemonade mix teehee.
Is it a bad thing that I buy the juice boxes (for my kids) strategically thinking about what flavor goes best with vodka?
That's right, stay classy.
