The Confessional

Sin from fellow a Boozehound: 

The night my grandfather died I was in college which of course meant drinking heavily. Found out the news the next morning and of course headed to be with the family. Had one of the worst hangovers of my life [NEVER substitute wine coolers for margarita mix and drink said concoction through red vines- just saying] which I instead pulled off as severe grief and they never knew different.

ILBAB says: This so reminds me of the pilot of Six Feet Under.

After doing crystal meth for the first time, which her boyfriend Gabe tells her is just going to make things "burn a little brighter", Claire gets a phone call from her brother telling her her dad was just killed.

Claire: I have to go. My dad just got hit by a bus and it broke his neck and he’s dead. I gotta go pick up my mom and bring her to the morgue so she can identify his body. (laughter) No, I’m not kidding. This is actually happening. And now I’m high on crack!
Gabe: Crystal.
Claire: Whatever! So I guess this whole hellish experience I’m about to go through is just gonna burn a little brighter now, right?! Great! Thank you! Fuck!

Overall though, minus the whole dead grandpa thing, I think using wine coolers to make margaritas and drinking them out of Red Vines (far superior to Twizzlers) is an amazing concept and we should try this again together.

The Confessional is now open. Have something you need to repent for? Feel free to send me your sin and I will help your purge your demons. 


  1. What an awesome drink combo! And even more awesome? The Six Feet Under reference! LOVED that show!

  2. Thanks so much for that laugh. Because I used to watch Six Feet Under and I swear I could hear it/see it in my head reading that. I just laughed so hard I cried. Awesomesauce.

  3. My friends use Mike's Hard Limeade/Lemonade as a mixer on a semi-regular basis. We're all in our 30's/early 40's. We're just insane. Whiskey sours made with Mike's Hard Lemonade will make and break your night. :)

  4. wonder my family is always so distraught at funerals...


I love hearing from you. It reinforces that writing this blog is not just a silly waste of my brain matter. If you leave a douche canoe comment, I will delete it. I am powerful like that.
