What's your favourite drink? Diet Coke® — hands down. I have three or four or even five on most days. I know that I shouldn't, but, as I said in a recent post, as far as addictions go, this one is not particularly heinous. At one time, Coke was just a treat, but when Diet Coke came on the market, lo these many years, and I didn't have to worry about calories, I began to consume it more and more. Now, I overdo it.
What's your favourite alcoholic drink? I don't consume a lot of alcohol. I have wine most frequently but could easily live without it. Beer, I have on occasion, and on those occasions I enjoy it. I like a Caesar every now and then, and I enjoy the odd vodka cooler in summer. I guess if I have to choose I'll go with Caesars, but alcohol is not a big deal to me. Since I don't consume much, I become easily affected, however, to the point where I have been called a cheap drunk — even though I have never been drunk. I somtimes wonder if I shouldn't make it a point to do that sometime before I turn sixty.
How many siblings do you have, and what are they like? None. Zilch. Zippo. Nada. I am an unspoiled only child. If you knew my parents, you'd understand how I could be unspoiled. For one thing, they were too poor to spoil any child. For another, they just wouldn't. I'm not sure if you can ever truly miss something that you never have, but I did want two children, so I must have sensed that something was lacking in my early years.
