So Happy Together

While everyone else is moping about the death of Ted Kennedy (well, maybe not everybody; Mary Jo Kopechne, for one, could not be reached for comment), here at waka waka waka we are enjoying some good news, courtesy of our friend and esteemed colleague The Stiletto.

We all know, of course, that binge drinking is a delightful and restorative way to knit care’s raveled sleave — but if you’re like me, your enjoyment has been dampened in recent years by dispiriting suggestions from the medical community that alcohol consumption at this existentially therapeutic level may in fact damage the brain.

Now comes a welcome report from the University of California, San Diego, that offers the perfect solution — one that, I suspect, more than a few of you may have already stumbled upon. Here.

    Crap! So the lesson here is finish all the required reading before taking action. Based on your report, I had already put a significant amount of gin on ice for use in an hour or two before reading the referenced article. Now what? Sub-zero gin is a terrible thing to waste.

    Sorry Mike, but I’m afraid, being some distance from Nashua, that I am unable to assist you with the necessary arrangements.

    Sigh… well, if that’s the way it’s gotta be… I put all but 3 shots back in the bottle.
