#FrozenFoodFridays – Back to the Ice Cube Tray Edition

Hello, creatures!  Once again, another week has drawn to a close, and once again, I am very fucking glad it has.  Never moreso than now, as I am embarking on something of a new challenge in my life.  You see, kiddos, ol’ EWE here dislikes being hurt.  I mean, not all the time…sometimes a little pain is kind of fun (Editor’s Note: Getting WAY off topic here!) alright, alright – ahem, anyway, my reaction to rejection or emotional damage from someone in the past has generally been to not so much burn bridges as INCINERATE ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING IN A TEN MILE RADIUS.  As such…there is usually no real recovery.  But this time…something is different.  I have decided…to wait for someone.  Not because I have to.  Not because they’ve asked me to.  Not because by doing so I am guaranteed a place in that person’s life at some point.  Simply because I have felt what it is like to be loved by that person…and it is worth waiting for.  And so I shall.  It doesn’t necessarily mean I will enjoy it, or it won’t hurt to see her with others as she determines what she wants from life…but I will endure it, and I will be there for her should she stumble or fall.  I’m not entirely sure why – my rule of thumb would be to convert any remaining care for someone into seething hatred and move on – but I’ve neither the desire nor the ability to do so in this case.  I can’t explain it fully – I just know that this is worth waiting for, and so I will wait.

So, in the spirit of trying to numb the pain and distract myself from the emptiness…I’ve got the perfect thing in mind for #FrozenFoodFridays!  What is the frozen component this week, you ask?  Well, if you read the title, then you know – grab yourself a glass and some ice cubes, because we’re hitting the booze once again!  Time for a simple, classy and classic painkiller that was first introduced to me by, ironically enough, the red-headed demoness that has introduced more pain into my life than just about anyone else!  Time for some of EWE’s Gin and Ginger Ale!

It’s just as simple as it sounds.  First, you’ll need a glass and some ice cubes.  Next fill about 1/3 of the glass with gin – my two personal favorites are either Beefeater or Bombay Sapphire.  Then fill the other 2/3 of the glass with some Seagrams ginger ale or Vernor’s ginger soda.  Garnish with a lime slice and enjoy.  Then repeat several times.  Though one word of caution – don’t overdo it with this or any other gin-based drink, because once you’ve thrown up juniper berries, you will know the true meaning of suffering.  And on that pleasant note, another #FrozenFoodFridays draws to a close.

And to the one I wait for, who is most likely not reading this – if you wonder how long I’m willing to wait for you, the answer is not forever.  I’ll wait forever and a day. – EWE

  1. I’m reminded of a great quote from a great man: “To Alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!” – Homer Simpson

    Bridge burning is my usual response when other humans upset me. I’m interested in seeing how your strategy works out. I wish you all the best my evil friend! 🙂

  2. *refuses to delve into the psychology of anguish even though she understands it because she likes having all of her limbs intact* *cough cough ahem* Is Canada Dry Ginger Ale an option for this? I’m not really much of a gin drinker, but it’s not one my list of things I can never drink again, and I’ve had G+T before with no ill effects. I can find some Seagrams in my area, but CD is much more common.

    1. Canada Dry is acceptable. And anguish is home for me – I mean, you’ve read this stuff, right? I merely am leaving myself the possibility that perhaps for once someone will actually miss my presence and wish to have it again – I do not kid myself into think this a likely outcome 😂
