Popular wisdom is sometimes right and sometimes wrong (like the ostrich issue in my last post). Today I’m providing you with data that, for the moment, prove a theory.
Once I was told that if you drink on a Monday, you drink the whole week. They were obviously not talking about water — which I think most of us drink daily —, but alcohol. Drinking on purpose looking for an ethylic week is, however, useless. It has to be a spontaneous drink with no objectives beyond that glass.
The theory reached my ears on a Friday and three days later, on a Monday, I had a beer with someone I can’t remember because that’s not relevant to prove my point. Little did I imagine that that drink was to be the beginning of the fulfilment of the prophecy. I just realised that on Tuesday when I was raising another glass.
Some might argue that it was a coincidence, suggestion or an intentional creation of content for my blog. There is, nevertheless, a reason for me to share this today. Last week I improvised a drink with the work mate who prepared me for the Proficiency on Monday. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that, during a week with swing parties, the Castanyada and a long weekend in Spain, ethanol ran freely through my veins, in small amounts though.
