Ha, ha! That's great! Nothing's more fun than being the sober one(s) around a bunch of drunks, that's for sure!

Smart kids!

haha yes too true. I don't think it is the kind of lesson that lasts though sadly. I too watched many people behave idiotically when drunk and look complete prats but that didn't stop me doing those student years of getting drunk and dancing on tables. I think it is a rite of passage and something to chuckle at one day when you are too old to cope with the hangover. Just so long as you don't overdo it and vomit on the pavement or venture near to water (so dangerous to be drunk near water - makes me shudder). I am hoping that my children will have the same fun that I had without doing anything too embarrassing or dangerous.


I'm getting a little nervous as my oldest enters his senior year and prepares to head off to college. I hope he sees and believes without the need to join the Stupid. (It took a few episodes of puking and hangovers --one very bad-- for me to see the light.)


I imagine that lesson will be with your kids for quite some time.


oh, my suz is a funny gal :)
she never fails to make me laugh!! remind me that she needs a new first aid kit... perhaps hello kitty bandaids would make for better tattos than a dog bone!

That's a great inadvertent lesson given by the over-partied "lady." I've always been amazed by how embarrassingly stupid people act when they drink too much...


Absolutely. We won't tell the kids about the up side to drinking. That will be our little secret.


Hi! All the way from Korea! Just wanted to touch base. Great guest post!

That is SO funny! A dog bone tattoo! You couldn't ask for a better "Don't Drink and Be Stupid" commercial!
