Love is in the air. Can you all feel it? That magical time of year is here. Cupid is slinging his arrows left and right and if you are lucky your man will actually remember that just like every year Valentine’s Day is February 14th.
It seems only fitting to make this week’s would you rather scenario have a love theme.
What goes better with S-E-X than alcohol? Other than total darkness, of course!
Seriously, though, in questions past about giving things up many of our Dose Peeps have shared that if the scenario had contained wine as part of it they would have a much harder time answering. Since we like to give the people
what they fear most what they want, here we go.
Let’s set the scene, shall we?
Take out your calendars and look at the date. Count ahead 6 months. That magic day is the end of the line for this
purely hypothetical challenge. Can you do it?
For the next 6 months, no getting busy in the bedroom. No making it happen with a quickie before the kids wake up. You cannot even be the “master of your own domain” if you know what I mean….which of course you do, because, hello Seinfeld.
Whatever your partner chooses to do on his/her own is none of our concern. But when it comes to you, the name of the game is abstinence. For 6 straight months. Fine. You can hug. Just so the kids don’t get worried. But that is it.
Have all the loving you want, but no alcohol of any kind for 6 months. Long, hard day where all you can think about is a nice glass of wine post-bedtime? Nope. Hanging out at the baseball stadium while everyone around you is enjoying a cold one? Sorry. Out with girlfriends celebrating a rare mom’s night out while raising a glass? The only glass you will be raising is your water glass. Doesn’t quite make the same clink on the toast as a cosmo, huh?
This is a challenge for you all, I bet. Or, is it so easy that your hands can’t get to the comment box fast enough? Let’s just say that The Dose Girls have had a few very important blog meetings about this topic, and we feel like we know what the results will be!
Would you rather give up S-E-X or alcohol for 6 months? Be honest. Pick one. Even if it is hard (that’s what she said!). Lisa just groaned reading that last sentence. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. You didn’t honestly think I would write an entire post about this subject without that reference, right? It was too easy…and everyone together now….that’s what she said!
