Drinking At Work: Is It Time To Start?August 10, 2008
Don’t let the title mislead you, I’ve been drinking at work for years. But this is managed drinking, where I go to lunch once every few weeks & have a couple margaritas (okay, strawberry margaritas. What can I say, I drink like a sorority girl). This is not what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about buying a bottle of wine, & having at my desk every day all day, and finishing it every day. I realize, it’s the wine talking (cause yes, I’ve had some of it tonight), but I feel WAY more competent & attractive when I’ve been drinking, & it seems like it could only help my work product if I felt this way every day. I’d be nicer to my co-workers (and let’s face it, they deserve a break from sober Jonson after all these years), I’d deliver a better (or at least more interesting) product to my clients, and I’d be better looking for everyone who looked at me. Plus funnier.
I’m thinking I need to find a good 10 dollar or so wine and just make that the daily bottle. Bring it in, keep a glass at the desk, and spend my days more cordially. I wonder how long I could pull this off before someone at work actually mentioned it to me. “So… about your drinking….”
