Reason #5 for not drinking for 90 days: less recycling
Our recycling bin seems to have a bottomless pit when it’s empty. It’s difficult to imagine having enough stuff to fill it up. Yet we frequently filled it to capacity with 50% of it comprised of beer bottles. It’s a relief to create less bottle waste.
Reason #6 for not drinking for 90 days: for the love of hats
I am a hat wearer. I love them and I used to look great in them until my head got fat. That’s right. When you get really fat your head circumference grows right along with the rest of you – even before you can see it in your face. I can no longer wear my favorite hat (the dirty 12 year old paper hat you see above) and it really bothers me. It is very hard for me to find hats that work for me now aside from my berets. There was only one hat left that I could wear on my fat head and still look good in, and my dog ate it 4 years ago. Not drinking today means getting one step closer to being able to wear hats again.
