Everyone Has Their Own Ideas About Romance

Totally not sure if this is a regional thing or what…

but folks in AA around these parts tend use the term “romancing the drink”  to mean that they are glorifying their memories of drinking.  It took me a while to figure out why “romancing the drink” sounded so funny.  This one woman, in particular, kept saying she couldn’t be around alcohol, or she would find herself romancing the drink…  And, every time she said it, my mind would conjure up a picture of her and her drink, bathed in moonlight…

Then it hit me:  Uh, honey, I think you mean romanticizing the drink.

Because, unless you are taking making a candlelit dinner for your drink or making sweet love to it, you are not, in fact, romancing the drink.

And you thought AA wasn’t entertaining….
