Kleenex and Coffee


Last night at church, I started coughing and sneezing - and just like that, I have a cold.  So I guess that is why I felt like I was getting sick all weekend.

A sad thing?  My sponsor is also sick, so I will not be going to stay with her this weekend.  I am sad because I haven't seen her for over a year, but I am somewhat relieved that I now have a weekend without one single thing planned.  Woo Hoo!  

If you have read this for a while, you know that I frequently look at my site meter to see how people arrive at my blog.  Some of the searches break your heart, like "my daughter is an alcoholic and is not taking care of her children," or "why are alcoholics mean?" but recently I got one that really had me scratching my head - it was "how to dress like an alcoholic."  My blog came up because I occasionally write about clothes and I always write about being an alcoholic.  So, I thought - who wants to dress like an alcoholic?  The only thing I could come up with is some kid looking for a halloween costume... any other ideas?  

I am going to work, this afternoon I will come home from work and stay in bed if I possibly can - but I have another project that needs to be done and ready for approval by a committee by 10 a.m.  I will get to a noon meeting one way or another.  

"Regardless of worldly success or failure, regardless of pain or joy, regardless of sickness or health or even of death itself, a new life of endless possibilities can be lived if we are willing to continue our awakening, through the practice of AA's Twelve Steps."  -- As Bill Sees It, p. 8

Most alcoholics I know dress just like ordinary people. Sometimes we are hard to spot, sometimes it's easy.

Take care, Sweetie!

Hmmm well, dressing like an "active alcoholic" for me would have been wearing my Friday night "I think I'm hot please buy me drugs and alcohol" outfit on Saturday morning.
Sorry you are sick little hushpuppy.

Hmmm, I didn't know I dressed a certain way.

Those searches are eye opening. Sometimes I think the person will be oh so surprised when they pull up my blog.

Well, that is just weird.

Sorry about your sponsor, glad you have a free weekend. I know what you mean about the heartbreaking ones.

Maybe we over dress to hide that we have a problem or possibly underdress to tell the world to leave us the hell alone. Or maybe there's no such thing as alcoholic attire but I'm sure someone tried to make $$ on it at least once! Maybe budweiser should start making jeans.

Maybe you can help me pick out my next new Lambda outfit. Wouldn't want to disappoint any newcomers.

I told you to get better. Weren't you listening?
