The Odd Slushy

By Mac Guerreiro

Eye’m sitting here sipping frozé. It’s funny, because, for the most part, eye don’t drink. Lately, however eye’ve been dabbling and experimenting with the old alcohol. Before eye continue, eye feel that eye should make my perspective on drinking clear: it’s poison, the human body is not meant to deal with alcohol. With that said, much like French fries and sugary desserts, all is alright in moderation.

What drove me to become a non-drinker in the first place was my inability to moderate. Eye don’t mean in the sense of being an alcoholic and using it as self medication but rather when eye did drink eye DRANK. Eye drank to get drunk and, believe it or not, this tiny girl needed a pretty large amount of alcohol to reach such a status. At one point eye realized that even if only monthly or less eye didn’t need to poison my body to that degree to have a good time, but drinking just a little didn’t seem to do much, so eye stopped.

Fast forward a couple years later and eye find myself feeling a little something after one drink, and it feels like a whole new world. No, eye won’t advertise that eye’ll have the odd alcoholic slushy here and there, but when the decision feels correct it’s nice to know that one or two is plenty. Maybe it’s the prolonged tolerance break, or perhaps my body chemistry having changed, but regardless Eye’m happy to be where eye am.

Lately, it’s all about options for me. Being able to give myself the option of partaking in alcohol without needing to get drunk is strangely liberating. Of course, my co workers will give me shit, because 99% of the time Eye’m the last one to touch the bottle but hey, it’s all in good fun, and it’s awesome to see how far eye’ve come.
