Z drinks champage and it goes to her head

Dear me, I’m not tired tonight, but I am totally smashed. It started with the champagne – only a couple of glasses but it goes straight to the head. It’s the bubbles, darlings. I moved on to white wine of the still variety afterwards.

However, the good news is that the Sage kissed me before – the bad news – he went out.

He went out. Yes. Hm.


He’ll be back.

Blimey, I am smashed, aren’t I.

I would, by the way, like to conduct a poll on how many say ‘aren’t I’ and who says ‘amn’t I’. Any takers?

    Martin, you are great. I hadn’t even noticed how unfashionably early it is. Truth is, I prefer not to try to sleep when the room is going round, nowadays, so I get drunk early.

    Ain’t I. Of course. Except round here, we say “Int”

    Aren’t I. That’s what I say….question tags – rules must be respected etc etc 😉

    A bit green about your state of non-sobriety though…I could do with some bubbly myself. Could also do with a kiss…well not from you Z – I mean I do love you but not enough for a snog.

    I say “am I” as in “I’m never smashed,am I” coz I’m a teatotaller(I total teacups and I smash them,do not I).

    Anyways why the brut de brut toasting?

    Looking forward to reading about your
    feathered flock as I am interested in birds since I had a pair of pidges in my room.

    Hi Luna – no real reason for the fizz, just that Friday feeling.

    We had a pair of swallows down the chimney once. Not easy to persuade them out of the window.

    you are hip, personified. i aspire to your elder greatness. a truly wild woman.

    and if this sounds cheeky, you need to know that it isn’t. not at all. i mean every word.

    No votes – not even mine – for amn’t I as yet. Anyone? Don’t be deterred by Dandelion, I know at least two people over the age of 22 months who say amn’t.

    Jen, the things you say. It’s no wonder I love you so.

    Definitely “int”. Tha’s a rum owd dew!

    I love champagne. You don’t so much get drunk on it as get high on it. I recall some world-shattering hangovers though.

  8. Z

    You are, as ever, right Steg. Not so much drunk as high.

    I avoid hangovers though. I drink to enjoy, not to regret.

    And, Pat and How Do We Know, who worry that I’m going to the dogs (sorry, Murph), I don’t drink too much. Just the right amount. Heh heh.

    I just shuddered at reading the word champagne – that’s how much I drank the last time I had any (which was about three or four years ago on New Year’s Eve). Good for you, though. If it doesn’t make you sick or whatever. I have the same m.o. as far as the drinking early thing. Can’t deal with hangovers.
