  1. Nothing like rum cake to ease the intervention! I remember attending an AA picnic and one of the ladies made a rum cake! It was the favorite dessert of the night! I remember thinking, what an odd thing to bring to an AA picnic. (I was al-anon, my ex was the recovering member).

  2. I’m not a drinker at all. I mean yea I would drink…uh…what we used to call fufu drinks like Pina Colada and drinks that taste good…but real drinking? Not really. Don’t get me wrong…It doesn’t bother me…I just never go into it.

  3. That’s awesome. My dad was never a drinker, but mom and stepdad both alkies. Neither of my kids drinks alcohol. Older son has tried it a few times and younger was never interested in it.

  4. I have tried it. When we were playing bars…like from 8 at night til 3 in the morning on summer nights…we would all be sweating and I would drink beer like water because beer was free to us…I would sweat it all out…that is the most drinking I ever done.

  5. Yea but I couldn’t feel a thing because it was gone…It would be over 80 in the bar. That was my foray into drinking…it didn’t suit me….cokes cost us but beer was free and we all were poor

  6. I logging off and going to watch a movie. I have an 8:30 dental appt in the morning, and I hope this tooth is taken care of. I’ve been babying it for a week now and this is for the birds! Glad you are OK now Max. Have a wonderful evening and good luck back at work tomorrow (if you feel well enough to go.)

  7. I was just amazed I never got drunk. That is how hot it was…after that I never wanted the stuff. I’ve probably drank a six pack since my 20s….that is it.
