You know what I did recently? I drank too many adult beverages. I went out and enjoyed an expensive dinner on a fancy roof-deck, had fantastic adult and long overdo conversation with my bestie, and I did it. I indulged. I drank as many cold beers as I used to when I could hang, before I was a mom and before I was 30-ish. I had an awesome time but then kind of regretted it later.
You know what else I did recently? I went shopping at IKEA. And I can’t help but draw some similarities between my night of over indulgence and shopping here. There’s the early anticipation, the euphoria, the confusion and haze, and ultimately, there’s regret. Let me elaborate.
And let’s be honest. It probably won’t be all that long until I forget just how awful I felt the next morning and how rickety that desk turned out to be and I’ll do it all over again.
