Here’s a fun interview with Will Roberts, host of the Weekly Telegram Radio Show. You can hear me chime in and discuss my work at the 24:00 mark. Enjoy!
Yep, I’ve been there. More than once. It’s what inspired this series, of course.
Each time I’ve tried, I’ve failed miserably.
Let me set the record straight. I’m no alcoholic. I have one small glass or bottle of something maybe every other night. And I mean one. I’m a total lightweight (or cheap date, as my husband calls me).
But occasionally I feel a little guilty for partaking in front of my kids. I kinda miss the days when they would go to bed at 8 pm, and I could safely pound – I mean sip — a nice Shiraz while watching TV.
Admittedly, now I pour extra into my glass because the kids are up later and want to taste whatever I’m having. Yes, I’m one of those parents who allow a sip. I’d rather they taste it in front of me than get curious and sneak into our liquor cabinet…that’s my logic.
Anyway, back to the series. As usual, Jill’s guilty conscious is the catalyst. She even gets Rob in on the act. But in the end, much like my own experience, they go back to their old ways. As Rob points out, it’s all about moderation. Which is a good philosophy for most things in life.
Well, except for sunscreen and really good ice cream. Liberal amounts are required.
