I'm not one for new years resolutions, but I have one this morning.  I hereby resolve that I will never, ever again do a shot of tequila after drinking three glasses of prosecco.  What follows is not pretty.

I suppose I could resolve to build my savings or to eat better or to run another half-marathon or to keep my house cleaner or to rededicate time to volunteering or any number of other things that would reflect a higher level of introspection or interest in improving myself and the world around me.  But those kinds of resolutions usually just serve to make me feel bad about myself and I usually crumble under the pressure. 

This resolution, though, is one I can stick with.  The next time someone presents me with a shot of tequila after midnight and much sparkling wine, I will remember how I felt at 2:30 a.m. on January 1, 2010, and I will say, "Thanks, but hell no!"

As my smart husband pointed out, if you're drunk enough to order a round of tequila shots, you probably don't need them....but certainly better than the green stuff of last New Year's. I did not vomit or end up with confetti on my face.

Meryl's husband sounds really smart.

Meryl's husband is very smart, and quite sweet. One of these days I hope I can be that smart.

You better start building up that tolerance. You are going to need it!
