Wine about it.

Yesterday I wanted to buy a bottle of wine with my groceries in the morning because it was Mother's Day, dammit, and nothing says "I'm a mom" quite like sipping cheap wine out of a coffee mug. Mostly I just wanted a bubble bath because my back is sore AF from all the swimming I've been doing lately, and who doesn't have wine with a bubble bath? It's like peanut butter and jelly, you can't have one without the other. But my dreams were thwarted by Texas.

See, we can't buy alcohol before noon on Sundays because we're still pretending that Christians don't ever drink, so that means no one can it's the law round these parts. I just...I mean, wasn't turning water into wine one of Jesus's main party tricks? It's pretty much that, the whole resurrection thing and healing sick people, right? 


All I'm sayin' is that you can go to a hospital before noon on Sunday. And I'm pretty sure there isn't a time restriction on resurrection either. (But I'll need to fact-check that.)

  1. It's like that in Michigan too. BUT some party stores do buy a special license so they can sell early on Sunday mornings. God bless those store owners.

    1. NICE. I'd buy all the party supplies there. All of them. And by that, I mean vodka.

    1. You just have to plan ahead and buy the champagne ahead of time. Who even has the time for that.

  4. Kansas is the same way, but fortunately I live on the state line and Missouri doesn't have those pesky laws.
