Typing in a Pub Whilst half in the bag...

The sign outside said live music.

I was in.

I was one footloose and fancy free mama who'd left the kids and my inhibitions at home...

He was one man with a synthesizer, a drum machine and a yen for American country and western music...

We never spoke. I never even saw the bastard (he was on the other side of the pub.) But he gave me the finest 60 minutes of uninterrupted musical joy I've experienced in a long time.

He played the hits, one after the other and I sang them. Oh how I sang them! Garth Brooks, Kenny Rogers and a particularly memorable version of Neil Diamond's "Forever in Blue Jeans."
I got a few funny looks from the bartender but hey! In the words of Bob Marley (and as sung by my magical, silver tongued synthesizer/drum machine man) "Don't Worry! Every little thing is gonna be alright!"

It's amazing how fast a glass of wine hits you when you've spent the better part of the last 2 years pregnant, breastfeeding and sober.

I think I need to get out more.


  1. I love it. I'm terrified of what will have become of my liquor tolerance post-pregnancy. Great blog!

  2. LOL! Sounds like a fun night!
