The Food and Wine Hedonist

leave your inhibitions at the door

What were you doing 16 years ago?

Were you learning how to ride a bike? Maybe you were mowing lawns for a measly five bucks.  Or perhaps you were hitting the beach with all of your friends who were back in town from college.   Or were you sitting in an office cubicle not entirely different than the one you’re sitting in now. Sorry to depress…

I know what I was doing 16 years ago today.  I was nursing a big ol’ hangover because a lot of beer, wine, champagne, and Prairie Fires (Tequila + Tabasco) make for a lethal combination.   My body was sore from all the crazy dancing (Macarena anyone?) we were doing the night before.

We stayed out ‘til 2am in a hotel lobby bar that was supposed to close an hour earlier.  We were ready to go for a few more hours but decided to dial it back a little because we knew the party would keep going through the whole weekend.

What was the occasion?  Well, 16 years ago yesterday (June 21st) Boom Boom and I were saying this…

By the way, this is probably my favorite song of the year.

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.

    Happy Belated Anniversary fellow June-married-person! Sixteen years ago I was working at a nutritional supplement company… and probably conducting forklift races in the warehouse.

      I gotta start a bucket list so that’ll be on it. Forklift racing, not working at a supplement company.

        LOL it was actually a great job to work at! Lots of perks, but the forklift racing was the most fun part 😉

    hmmm…16 years ago I was 16. Studying to get my drivers permit, wondering which friends house we were going to sleep at that weekend, looking forward to soaking up the sun poolside. ah, the frivolous life of a teenage girl.

    16 years ago…. I was 10 and trying to figure out why girls were so distracting. I was transitioning into that awkward stage when things were tingling and it wasn’t my spider-sense, if you know what I mean.

    Also I was watching Pinky and the Brain.
