If the kids are home, I’m technically not drinking alone, right?

There are days and then there are DAYS! On these DAYS, if Larry walks in the door from work and tries to make small talk, as in a pleasantly curious, “What did you do today?” I will growl back, “The only thing you should be asking me is ‘red or white?!” I take pathetic pride in waiting to pour […]
