My sisters and my friends are constanly pulling me away from what I perceive to be fascinating conversation with an incredibly handsome man. It has become a habit of mine to now ask my keepers early on, "Is he normal?" or "He's cute isn't he? He has all his teeth...and most of his hair."
It's just that I'm easily impressed and easily amused when I've had a few cocktails. This can, understandably give a man the impression that I am (a) impressed and/or (b) amused which isn't really fair to him since, in reality, I am probably neither. I'm just drunk which makes me smile a lot.
The side effect that Deek's post reminded me of is a less frequently mentioned symptom of beer (Smirnoff Ice) goggles. That would be the inverse beer (Smirnoff Ice) goggle effect. Not only do we find members of the opposite sex more attractive than they really are, but we actually begin to think we are the shizzle and could give Angelina Jolie a run for Brad Pitt's money.
I have a few pieces of advice for you before your next evening out on the town:
- Designate a driver,
- Designate a keeper, and
- Whatever you do, don't piss off your keeper. They hold your romantic fate for the evening in their hands. A pissed off keeper can lead you straight into the waiting arms of Ms. Psycho-Bitch-From-Hell or Mr. What-Was-I-Thinking.
