Listen to “It’s Patron Time” while reading this post to set the mood. Like what you’re hearing? Make sure to repeat it :).
My lovely iPod played this song a few days back and ever since then I have sung its patron time.
I rarely ever drink and when I do I’m not a big drinker. Every once in a while I’d go out in college, but I didn’t like how it made me feel. I felt lazy and not myself. I’d rather do something sober instead.
More so, with this health condition I have been in fear of drinking. I didn’t want my bag to constantly fill up with liquid stool and/or gas. Running to the bathroom while drunk to empty just didn’t appeal to me. I have the same feelings towards going to sleep drunk and having a bag explode. Getting shit everywhere is not on my bucket-list.
But last night I thought “Screw It, I’m Going Out, It’s Patron Time.”
To start the night out, I went with my boyfriend to a Japanese restaurant for our 3-year-anniversary. I had teriyaki chicken, rice, and fried vegetables. Then we met up with a couple of friends at a local bar. I had a tequila sunrise and a tequila shot with the salt and lime, yum yum. Then we proceeded to a friend’s house to meet up with more friends. I played two rounds of pong while sipping on a Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade, that was also good. Since I don’t drink, I got a ‘little’ drunk off of those in the 4 hours we were hanging out.
Not once did I have to empty my bag! Go Rice! Go Body!
Going out and having a good time has been on my mind a lot. My next surgery is approaching, and I want to let myself have some harmless fun before I’m out of the social game for a while. Unless you wanna bring its patron time to my house? Just playing. . .but can you? And I’ll just put this out there, a non-alcoholic party in the hospital is always welcome too.
Aside from drinking that night, I also have gone everywhere I go WITHOUT emergency supplies this whole week. O_O Yeah, I’m wild. I even have cut all the tape off of my wafer so my skin is less irritated which means I am at a higher risk of leaking and needing emergency supplies!
Guess what? A few weeks ago, I had emergency supplies with me and had a leak with my normal, uncut tape wafer at a public beach. Cool thing was that it looked like watery blood because I was drinking red Gatorade. But I should learn from this and always carry my emergency supplies with me, especially now with my skimpy wafer.
