Gordi Discovers "Non-alcoholic" Cider
The often reserved and quiet Gordi found her inner Argentine one Christmas.
After having a few glasses of "non-alcoholic" cider (which means that it has less than a certain, very low percent of alcohol content) I wondered why I was dizzy and having to lean on furniture constantly, but I drowned out the dizziness by downing even more cider, despite the burning as it went down. After a few glasses, I found it incredibly easy to speak Spanish, and make jokes, and act silly, and make a fool of myself in front of the in-laws. (Not that I hadn't already made a fool of myself numerous times. This time was different in that it was not so accidental.)
So I enjoyed that noche buena a lot more than I've ever enjoyed any others. And TC and I laugh at my low tolerance for alcohol (which is, not surprisingly, zero) and at how "loose" I was after a few drinks. At least I'm not a mean drunk. Just imagine what Nyquil does to me.
