    White Russians are the worst. Whoever thought of mixing vodka and milk....euwww...shudder...
    Sickest I've ever been . . .

    . . .Except for when I was hanging out with Deputies and Rednecks, singing Merle Haggard and various Country Star's hits in awesome 5 part harmonies, and tossing down shots of Jim Beam. For three months I out-drank the rednecks; nobody could believe it.
    Then one night I was running to the bathroom to puke, and broke my little toe on the door-jam, but didn't know it until much, much later. The porcelain-god was the only sturdy thing in my world. After two hours of extreme vertigo, I crawled off to a bed and slept 4 hours. Well, passed out actually. And that was the end of my Redneck Era. It was fun, until it wasn't anymore.

    Wasn't exactly partying, though.

    Ain't had a drink since, nigh on these 30 years.
    For me, it was gin. To this day the smell of it makes me want to retch.

    Our confessions of wilder years? Well, I was a teenager in the early 80's so that should be a good clue. I am pretty sure I partied way more than I studied. The legal drinking age in WI was 18 back then and there were plenty of bars in my town that didn't much care about enforcing even that. I was drinking pretty regularly in bars by 16 and legally drinking in bars and bartending my senior year in high school. Sadly my small city had the dubious honor of having the most bars per capita in the entire nation in those days.

    There was only one high school with a student population of over 1500, it wasn't unusual for parties after football and hockey games to have 450 kids there. We were a hardy bunch, you could tell the real party kids by which group was huddled around the bonfire and which group was huddled around the keg. By the time I was in my early 20's I was pretty much partied out. I became a mom at 23 and that cured me of the wild life pretty well.

    Nowadays I am firmly in old fuddy duddy territory. I'm not posting at 4:20 in the morning because I was up all night partying, I am up and on AN because I was in bed before 9:30 pm and woke up at this godawful time of day.

    To 'celebrate' my 21st birthday my friends took me to a bar...but I did not have a driver's license so I lacked the ID to get in, and no way did I look 21. These 'friends' went in anyway. I sat outside for a while and then took a cab back to my apartment. Whoop-dee-doo!

    To quote my DD's friend, the late Sam Berns, (google his TED talk), go to ALL the parties. Sam died at age 17 of Progeria. He never missed a party up until the week before his death.

    So, FranEM, you nevah, evah attended any parties at all in school? What about afterwards?

    I had a friend whose religion forbade singing,dancing, smoking, drinking, listening to the radio, wearing make-up, jewelry or short skirts, going to parties, or really pretty much any celebration of any kind . . . guess they never read the Psalm that begins, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord..."

    She was the wickedest little BAD GIRL I ever met! She set out to break every rule, I reckon, and boy did she ever succeed! She sneaked out of the house on many a night and did ALL of the above. I don't believe her parents ever found out. If her mother would've ever bothered to search her daughter's LARGE purse, there would have been Hellfire raining down on her head, cause she kept everything in there!

    I didn't come from a strict religion, but this girl just really blew my mind!

    Back then I had to be home to set the table, cook supper, wash the supper dishes, throw down hay for the livestock, etc. etc, and I was a very unpopular child who got picked on a lot.
