Rudolph Subsists Off of Sprite

Here’s the thing about antibiotics. They’re kind of the nemesis of fun. You can’t go out in the sun. You can’t drink. And you have to eat when you’re not hungry. So I spent the weekend hiding in shadows, trying not to drink alcohol as my friends had a gorgeous, outdoor wedding.

Let’s just say I did some retail therapy and found myself a cute, new dress to compensate for the fact that a FUCKING BUG bit me two weeks ago, and if that’s not disgusting enough, I could not sit outside nor partake of the FREE WINE because my doctor is a sadist and felt that I should take anti-fun pills for the next eon.

Not only that, but there was a rehearsal dinner (more free wine!) an open house the day after (MORE WINE) and then another friend’s poolside engagement party which again CONSISTED OF LOTS OF SUN AND EVEN MORE FREE WINE.

Do you see a pattern, here? A pattern of the universe mocking me?

The upside is that my pictures came out less blurry than usual. Of course, I got a sunburn on my nose, but oh well. I’m thinking I could try to make the “Rudolph” look work for the summer. At least it balances out my neon nails.

I'm spitefully laughing at the universe with you, not at you m'dear.

:ducks and runs:

I'm sorry...I felt that way over Memorial weekend when everyone was drinking and having fun and I couldn't because anti-depressants and alkyhol don't mix particularly well.

and more wine at book club tonight! oh no! we need to find something convincingly wine-y to serve you so you don't feel left out :-(
Isn't the 14 days close to up?

Having to pass up free wine is a damned shame!

Diane said...

Ok, according to my friend who's a doctor, that warning is pretty much BS, and most antibiotics aren't effected by booze.

In case you want to ignore your doctor's orders next time . . .

Ouch. Antibiotics are a bitch!

Wickedly Scarlett said...

Yeah, my sister is constantly sick and on antibiotics and constantly drunk... she's not dead yet, so take that for what it's worth... Hope you're feeling better!!

Yoga Gal said...

You have to be careful of antibiotics, we can grow a resistance to them if taken too often. Funny read though!

Princess in Galoshes said...

Red- I think you might be laughing AT me....

AJ- Oh, I squished him. In a nail-polish remover-soaked tissue, nonetheless. Darn bug.

Holly- Two more days. And counting.

Meno- A damned shame.

Diane- I do not even know what to say. I am... regretting my whole outlook on my weekend. AUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHH

Guilty Secret- No kidding

Scarlett- I have learned my lesson for next time.

Yoga- I've heard that. But I actually took antibiotics for over a decade, and they still seem to have an effect on me, so you must have to take them for a REALLY long time.

Hopefully this will make me laugh.

It's possibly my favorite Family Guy clip EVER.

I'm in mourning for you missing out on all that free vino!
It was a Polish bug? A Pink Polish bug?
Yep, you definitely need antibots for that!
I'd have (lightly) experimented with the freeloading though.
I have no resistance!
