Is it wrong to drink champagne at 5:30 pm?

Well....is it?  I have a bottle of opened champagne - which, btw, you can keep fresh and sparkly by putting a spoon into the top and letting it dangle.  I don't know why it works but it does.  Try it.  Why waste champagne?

But - we've given the 'laws a break, and come back home from the beach place to our house for a few days.  They'll come back for the weekend before heading back to the snowy Midwest.  

And I think that we're all a little happy and relieved.  My sister-in-law is a great woman, she's really nice and we both married into a quirky family and she's dealt with a lot, blah and etc.

But I now realize that she's a bit of a clean freak and I'm sure that my housekeeping is not up to her standards.  Good news - our little beach place will probably be cleaner than it's ever been.  Bad news - she thinks I'm a sloth.  A sloth who drinks champagne at 5:30 pm.  A drinking sloth with dark roots.  A drinking, dark-rooted sloth who spends too much time on the internet.  A drinking, dark-rooted, blogging sloth who's addicted to reality TV.  A drinking, dark-rooted, blogging reality TV sloth.

That's Lulu.

I like you even more now that I know you drink champagne at 5:30pm with dark roots. I think we just might be kindred spirits.

I'm pretty sure I'd rather hang out with a drinking, dark-rooted, blogging sloth than a clean freak any day of the week!

Wait a minute, you have a BEACH HOUSE? And you drink champagne at 5pm? If I ever come out your way, we are so getting together; I'll bring a few bottles of champagne and a swimsuit.
Don't feel bad about the clean freak sister-in-law, feel bad FOR her. You are obviously a woman who has more fun things to do than clean, hooray!

btw, blogging is the new black, how did you know?

Lulu said...

Miss Y - we are definitely kindred spirits!
Liz, thank you - I'd like to hang out with you too.
Vic, back at ya.
Diane, I am a bloganistaaaaaa!!

There is no wrong time to drink champagne!

champagne knows no boundary of time. It is to be sipped or gulped according to occasion at whatever time of the day a celebration is in order-no matter how big or small. Now if you were drinking it at 5:30 am you would just need to add a little orange juice and call it a mimosa. Breakfast of champions!
