Ready or Not is ready! Or not. I guess it depends on how you look at it. The first draft is done (ready) to be revised but nowhere near ready to be submitted (not ready). Feeling so strangely un-elated that I didn’t even break open the bottle of Prosecco I bought for the occasion. (Okay, so I bought two and already drank one in anticipation of finishing, but hey, who’s counting?)
That would be the two bottles of Prosecco that I bought along with thirteen (thirteen!) bottles of flavored Kahlua. But, they’re not all for me! Honest! It was just a really good sale (which someone pointed out to me today was probably a mistake since the price was well below state minimum) and I’m a frugal kind of woman. When I tried to share news of my discovery with the cashier, she looked at my fifteen bottles of alcohol and said, “I don’t drink.”
What could I say?
I’ll be giving Kahlua as gifts for the rest of my life.
