The Lost Weekend

Our Llama Military Correspondent and I are in the same boat this weekend as our respective Missusees down tools and scuttle off to an undisclosed location to indulge themselves in irresponsible frivolity, leaving us knee-deep in kids.

I don't know how the LMC is going to deal with his brood, but I'm toying with the idea of vodka in the lunchtime Splash Juice.

Benaryl is also a helpful tool. And if you don't feel right about druggin' the children, take it yourself. That way you can sleep through them tearing the house down.

Sure, the vodka sounds like a good idea, until you factor in the mini-hangovers (and possibly cleaning up the bathroom after some alcohol-induced porcelain worship...)

The gels' weekend out is Mrs. LMC's revenge for leaving her every month for drill at Fort Bragg.

LDH - Only one thing for mini-hangovers: hair o' the dog until Mom gets home.

Vodka in the juice? Never hurt me any.

Emphasize the Vitamin C in the juice--critical for warding off scurvy.
