Last week, while I was sitting drinking a stubby on the lounge watching Top Gear, Tracey said to me, "So it's July next month."
"You're all over it," I replied.
"Still think you can go a whole month without a drink?"
Damn! I'd forgotten about that.
When I heard about the Dry July concept I thought it sounded great.
"I'm going to do that," I said to Tracey at the time. That was my mistake - if I'd kept it to myself I'd be having Scotch & Dry July instead.
"Why?" she asked. "Why would you want to do that?"
Because I want to give my liver a break. Because I want to prove to myself I can. Because abstinence makes the heart grow fonder. "Just because," I told her.
And, well, it was March when we had this conversation: July seemed so very far away.
Worst thing is, I've even got a week off work in July which I'd normally use to polish off a carton, but now I don't know what I'll do.
Tracey has that covered.
"Don't forget you promised me you'd paint the fence these holidays."
Damn! I made that promise back in February.
