why the f*ck friday (21)

"Sometimes I just forget I'm a cat."
Welcome to my weekly meme post. I'll be asking myself a single question--normally a thought on a book or a bookish subject--that I've been pondering for the past week. This week it's "Why the f*ck am I unable to read with a beer buzz?"

So here's a quick question for anyone over the age of 21 (or whatever drinking age is legal in your country): do you find it difficult to read while intoxicated?

I have to admit, I love craft beer, and wine, and spirits, and mead, and... I don't go to meetings, but let's just say I like to get a little inebriated on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and have a Bloody Mary on Sunday morning.

I just have one slight problem. Sometimes I can have one beer and I'm good to go with my book. Sometimes I have three beers, I read an entire chapter, and I forget that chapter. I've lost a lot of time reading because of this.

I often see the phrase "write drunk, edit sober"* floating around writing communities and book blogs. I've tried this, it doesn't work. If anything it leads to me watching YouTube videos of someone more intoxicated than me making an ass out of themselves.

I'm creating a new phrase: book boozing. Or maybe booze booking. Or book blackouts to explain this phenomenon.

That's it for this weeks WTFF. I would like to hear about your experiences book boozing or book blacking out. Or just tell me what you like to drink with your books. Craft beer suggestions? Post it. Happy Friday!

*Ernest Hemingway said this. I always thought he meant write without inhibitions and then take a keen eye to your work.
Note: I don't drink as much as I'm letting on, but that cat up in the right hand corner of this post? Complete alcoholic. He's nice when he's sober.

Nhân sâm tươi đủ 6 năm tuổi được chọn lựa kỹ sau đó đem đi hấp sấy đến khi tỷ lệ nước còn dưới 14% để tạo thành hồng sâm (nhân sâm khô).
