Since I am the cohabitant in the Future, I might have some business here. Empty coffee cups and vinegar are hardly that bad. Getting drunk and loud instead is a big form of disrespect. Not only to others, cohabitants or friends or anyhow people who care for you (who all count nothing for the drunk person, at the moment, since he/she's in a total self-centered, egotistic state) but to themselves. I've never seen anybody putting up a decent show when they're drunk. Everybody's a tacky, gross version of themselves, and make you feel like you don't want to know that drunk/loud person then. I guess that's part of the reason why I don't drink. I never let myself to get to that point even when I was drinking, but I've seen to many miserable shows put up by friends who, otherwise, I respected. And that's also probably why I'm wary if somebody does not watch their drinking. Red flag, I guess, before finding my self sitting in the auditorium of another tasteless performance. But, hey, if there's any reader of this blog who thinks he/she can prove me wrong and be a "decent" drunk, I'm up to watching that.

heh, you said "tossing the salad"


heh. I've been told that I go heavy on the vinegar too. I like salads (and sushi) better that way.

I like bagging my own groceries-- I think I pack foods sensibly, so that the fragile items don't get squashed in transit.

Gloria: I daresay that I'm a very quiet drunk-- the more I drink, the less I talk. But I haven't gotten drunk in years, and I don't miss it.
