Dear bloggers and creative entrepreneurs, I came to the realization that we have a lot in common with drunk people. Here are just a few of our common traits:
1. We forget stuff extremely quickly.
Bloggers: We forget to do things such as eat lunch. Right after we finished making lunch. Because, you know . . . our blogs.
Drunk people: Will forget the end of their sentence, mid-sentence. And where they put their wallet. And their phone.
2. We have ridiculous ideas that seem really epic at the time.
Bloggers: You know, like writing about how bloggers are like drunk people. Or launching those two other blogs we’re so passionate about that we have negative amounts of time and energy for.
Drunk people: Things such as serenading you from afar, challenging the Dwight Howard sized man at the bar to a fight, or simply dancing, really horribly.
3. We try to keep the party going way past our bedtime.
Bloggers: I know you feel like you can crank that post out at 3 a.m., but let’s be honest, sometimes your delirious blog posts are the equivalent of drunk texting your ex. You’re better than that.
Drunk people: Go home drunk people, you’re drunk.
4. Our emotions change in an instant.
Bloggers: “Aww, no one commented on my post today. Maaan! No one loves me. Life is horrible . . . ooh look, Holly B. just repinned my pin. All is right with the world!”
