Boozer on Board

June 4, 2012


So, I white-knuckled it to northern Kentucky on Friday morning, but last night seemed like a good time to break out the small bottles of vodka I brought. And I almost enjoyed myself; the flight was smooth and short, and I was drunk. Well, sort of. I didn’t think I was, but there was a point where my husband leaned over and said, “You have shamed our family.”

Apparently, I kept using the head rest of the man in front of me to pull myself up, yanking it back, along with the man’s head. Yes, I became that woman on the flight. All I know is that it was one of my best flights ever.

We had a brief but lovely visit with my in-laws, and I didn’t have much time to write, so this morning I thought I’d post a charming video that’s making its way around the internet. It’s a live lip-dub proposal by a guy named Isaac to his girlfriend, Amy. I’ve never been a fan of public proposals — mostly because I’d never want one myself — but this is one time that getting family, friends, and neighbors involved really worked. Hope it gets your week off to a happy start.

Um, no. I had to censor that. :-)

Just for the record, the “You have shamed our family” line was said in jest. I might have added “…but entertained your husband.”

You need an Rx! Get a small Rx from your doctor of a benzo (Like a zanax type med). You can get a script to be taken as needed, even just five or ten pills to keep for when you need them. Even the lowest dose will calm you right down and you will be able to function normally at the same time lol

I do have some Zanax for longer flights. I just don’t like it — it doesn’t take away the anxiety and then when I take more, it makes me super groggy and puts me in a weird space — I can never quite fall asleep but I’m not really “with it” either. For short flights, alcohol is usually the way to go — I don’t get headaches or hangovers with vodka. Must be my Latvian/Russian genes. Last night just happened to be rather entertaining. I was in control, but apparently talking a bit too loud.

You might want to try a different one if the Xanax makes you feel weird….Ativan or Klonopin….or just stick with booze :)
