Drink up it’s your birthday

Day 193.

One of my sisters has a birthday coming up. Call me old-fashioned, but I still like to buy birthday cards and post them.

As I browsed through the cards I noticed a theme of birthday=drink. Now, as it happens, my sister does love her ‘adult beverages’. A lot. However, in my newly-minted sobriety I was pretty surprised how every card seemed to promote a drink to celebrate.

Funny how you start noticing lots of something once you start not doing that something that you used to do.

  1. I have noticed this as well. It actually makes me kind of angry. Alcohol causes so much devastation for so many. It is an addictive drug. I just don’t understand how these cards are cute or funny. Advertising is so powerful.
