Prompt: Tuesday, January 7, 2014
Tell us about a time when you didn’t bend to peer pressure, and you swam against the stream.

As mentioned in the previous post, I never really dealt with peer pressure, but in terms of swimming against the stream, I did wait until I was 21 to drink alcohol.  There were friends who experimented during that time, but I still live by “live and let live.”

I had the nickname, “Bubbly,” in school.  I didn’t really need anything else to make me even livelier than that. LOL

I do imbibe once in awhile socially, but it doesn’t really do much for me.  The first drink makes everything nice, shiny, and bright, but then after the 2nd drink, it just starts to make me sleepy. What fun is a sleepy Mercedita?  I guess this makes me a cheap date?

I do have a Bartender’s Certificate.  It was for my foodie dreams of opening a restaurant one day.  I think I almost got kicked out of the class when I said my favorite drink was water.  Who knew the instructor meant “alcoholic” drink? HaHa

Yeah… I better end it right here. 😉
