Open Mouth-Insert Foot-Drink More Wine

I went to the beach last weekend with my sister and 2 of her co-workers. I had never met them, which usually makes me uneasy, but I really wanted to go to the beach, so I put on my friendly face and off I went.
The first night was fine. Although I could tell we were very different people. They were playing cards, drinking coffee while my sister and I were enjoying our Amaretto Sours and watching Ghost Whisperer. (Tushes at 8:00! That's for you Kathi. )
On the second night my glasses of wine encouraged me to bring up a theory I have about Republicans and their feelings toward the Clintons. I wouldn't normally talk politics with strangers but dang that yummy Pinot Gris!
Well, when I was done venting, one of the ladies told me she was a proud Republican and began her little speech (which in the end proved my theory true).
I was embarrassed that I had brought this up, but I was also happy to learn I was on the right track. (I'm trying to think positive here.)
Well, I doubt I will be asked back for a weekend getaway with those ladies.
Oh well.
The Amaretto Sours were worth it.

  1. Mmm, so what IS your theory about Republicans and the Clintons then? I'm intigued...

  2. I'm wondering about your theory, too, Ann... but I'm sure you're right. :-) My dad proves me right every time (we are on opposite sides of the political spectrum).

  3. Forgot to add... Love "Ghost Whisperer"!!

  4. This sounds like something I would do. I've been given the "proud Republican" speech too after a few inebriated ramblings on politics (a subject I DO feel passionately about, more so with vino...), but I was usually too buzzed to listen :)
