Okay, so Wizard is trying to convince me that if I drink beer — which I don’t like — I can lower my risk of heart disease by 30%. He heard that in some “study” on TV:
“Witch, did you hear that? You can lower your risk of heart disease by drinking beer!”
Me, “I don’t like beer.” I don’t care that he drinks it, I just can’t do it. Ugh.
“But you’d look so sexy.” (Okay I can’t help his weird fixation on this. Sorry!)
Me, “Not happening.”
“But it’s good for you.”
Me, “I’ll take my chances. Besides the red wine I’m drinking occasionally–” I frowned at the loud choking sound coming from Wizard. I glared at him. “Did you want to say something?”
“Uh..no? You only drink wine
every night…uh occasionally.”
I wisely let that go. “Anyway, I’ll take my chances on heart disease. I’m not drinking beer.”
He tried another tactic. “I’ll eat broccoli if you try beer.”
I fixed another glare on him. “You’ll eat your broccoli anyway.” I stopped negotiating on vegetables a long time ago and just put them on his plate. He eats them unless they are something he truly hates like Brussel sprouts or lima beans. Otherwise, he eats them because I want him healthy and he knows it. But I wasn’t done. “It’s a stupid study anyway.”
That got his attention. “What about the study saying red wine is good for you?”
What the hell kind of logic is this? Wine obviously trumps beer in any study. Seriously I sometimes wonder how Wizard accumulated all those degrees. But I explained it slowly. “The wine study is a true medical breakthrough. The beer one is stupid college kids making up an excuse to drink and play beer pong.”
He gave me a look as if he had me cornered. “How do you know that?”
I considered that for a moment. “Same way I know that if you keep harping on this, you’ll be having lima beans for dinner tomorrow night.”
He made a hilarious face of disgust. “I’m done talking to you.”
LOLOL!! I won! I’d totally have done the happy dance, but the last time I tried to dance, I managed to (mildly) tear my Achilles so I settled for gloating
Otherwise, I had a great weekend. Saturday I went to lunch and shopping with my sister, Biker Witch And we may have indulged in some incredible cheesecake <g> Sunday I wrote, getting to know my characters and really loving just letting myself work on a the early part of a book without too much external pressure. Then last night, Wizard and I had some wine and made steak and lobster.
How was your weekend?
And just a reminder:
