never drinking ROCKS
'cause... one night you will decide to go out for a friend's birthday and you will decide to eat shrimp even though you've not eaten any animal products for a WEEK and you will also have eggs (namago) and you will also decide to have a mojito. and you will also order a second one. and afterwards, you will be drunk to the point that your dinner companions are laughing at you. ON TWO DRINKS. and they will be very jealous of your alcohol intolerance, to the point of remarking upon it: "oh, that would be so awesome to get drunk on two drinks..!!!" also, at one point, you will almost KNOCK OVER your second one, but catch it at the last second, with your cat-like reflexes. and then your friends will laugh that benihana is going to send over their security ninjas to kick you out. "you're cut off."
and then you'll go home and type up a blog post that you will have to make 6,000 corrections to, because you are too drunk to type right.
THAT, friends, is why never-ever drinking is a good idea.
also, beth, we should TOTALLY go to benihana when you're here, 'cause, like, YUM.
