Gin and I can no longer be friends.
Last night I came home from work and fixed a lovely pizza from scratch (bufalo mozzarella, truffled goat cheese, pepperoni, fresh basil). Over the course of the 2 1/2 hours between preparing the meal, eating it, and then plunking down on the couch, I drank two gin and tonics. I don't even think I finished the second one. Either way, by the third hour I was pretty much plastered - but in a super chatty, hyper, Let Me Tell YOU sort of way (hence SFG's are you on coke? question). I was so wasted I went to sleep at about 10 pm, woke up at 12:30 still drunk. As if I'd consumed an entire bottle of wine. It was that bad.
I am either becoming a serious lightweight, have developed some sort of strange allergy to gin, have a hormonal or metabolic imbalance, or just can't take the Citadelle that we purchased on a whim.
Last week I had a g&t with the Citadelle and got a super raging headache. Maybe I just can't do French gin. I will have to switch back to Hendrick's and see what happens. But I am afraid. What if I have to break up with that one too? Life will simply no longer be the same.
