Email This Post HomeHumorWhy You Shouldn’t Mix Manhattans with Wine Amy Vansant August 10, 2012 Humor 23 Comments You wake up and it sounds like there is a tiny woman in your skull screaming at the top of her lungs while she rips out chunks of your brain. You stumble out to find the kitchen and living room covered in empty wine bottles, glasses, playing cards and heartburn medicine bottles. You burst into tears watching Olympic synchronized swimming, which immediately shifts into uncontrollable giggles at how stupid you are. About the time you get that under control, you burst into tears watching an inspirational Nike commercial. You ask your husband to put you down. You check your email and find this photo you sent yourself from the night before of your husband playing knife games with your friend. Please send help.

Although actually, I bet a lot of Olympic sports would be more gripping if knives were involved… 0 likes Reply Amy Vansant August 10, 2012 It was a bunch of older women talking about achieving in sports and then their voices would come out of little girls saying the same things and then *sob!* 0 likes Reply will August 10, 2012 Oh amy..lmao i sucked down to many vodka martinis last night an you hit the nail on the head except the husband part for me .. hahahaha well done yet again. where have you been hiding all my life ? 🙂 0 likes Reply Amy Vansant August 10, 2012 You have my sympathies.

I’ve never had a Manhattan, but after only one vodka gimlet I usually end up sobbing and synchronized swimming in my bath tub.
