aka The Frazzled Mom
Have you ever noticed there are different kinds of drunk?
But did you know there is another? I discovered that while at a conference in Las Vegas. It was while on break, not during a workshop or anything!
I was with a co-worker. We both decided to give the hotel restaurant a try. Since the Hilton was Star Trek themed, so was the restaurant/bar, known as Quark’s Bar. Alas, it is no longer there. Too bad, ’cause it was kinda fun to look around.
We were having lunch there, when my co-worker asked if I wanted to try the Borg’s Sphere. It was an alcoholic drink containing the following:
My review: It was okay, but not something I’d want again. Still, it was something different to try, so we shared it. I think we’d gotten maybe halfway down. I bent down to retrieve my wallet. When I sat up, the room was spinning a bit. A lightweight? Yep. I don’t care for alcohol. I don’t usually drink it. So it wasn’t a surprise that I’d had that reaction. Logically, responsibly, I chose to stop. My co-worker decided to do the same.
We payed our bill, abandoned the drink and left the restaurant to find seats in the hallway. The next workshop wasn’t set to start for another thirty minutes or so. To kill time, I decided to call my husband. Boy was the a bad idea. Something in that drink and the way it mixed with my DNA, it literally sent me into giggle fits. I could hardly talk on the phone, I was laughing so much. Of course, my husband was really amused by the conversation.
So add “giggly” to that list.
