Tell us about the first time you got drunk or tipsy (as far as you can remember…) Do you ever stop yourself from telling too much when you write online, or do you think you tell too much?
I started drinking when I was in junior high, but don’t recall getting out and out drunk until my 15th birthday. We’d moved fromGeorgia to Texas, and the one friend I had from high school (as opposed to Sea Cadets, where I had lots of friends) had a birthday right around mine, and she hosted a party. Her mother conveniently absented herself from the house, and my parents didn’t know she was not going to be there, so it was quite the shindig. Everyone who came put something alcoholic into the punch, and I got so drunk I could hardly move. I seem to recall the boy who became my boyfriend having me sit on his lap because the room was spinning so badly and he wanted to make sure I didn’t fall on my face. And when it was time to hurl, he helped me to the bathroom and stood guard outside the door. It wasn’t fun.
As far as the second question, believe it or not, there are times when I stop myself from telling too much online, but not always. I probably tell far more than I really should, so there it is.
