It’s Thirsty Thursday, but I can’t drink anymore without puking.
I’ve been drinking a lot of alcohol recently. It’s not my fault. Sometimes I just happen upon a Jura wine tasting at 4 PM and the next thing I know it’s midnight and I’m passed out with purple teeth. Sometimes I cater an event for 40+ people and chug a thyme-honey and gin cocktail the second that last tray of meatballs comes out of the oven. Whatever, dude. It’s springtime.
Today, I’m taking a day off to replenish with probiotics and nutrients blended into my afternoon coffee. It tastes like dessert, but it will heal you.
