Texting While Drunk

I swear, "Thou shalt not drink and text" is going to be my new motto.

I'm pretty slight. It doesn't take very many cocktails or glasses of wine to get me tipsy. And when the music's playing and the drinks are flowing and the conversations are going... eh! When in Rome...

During my great time at the eBay On Location Conference in Orlando, FL two weeks ago, the drinks were certainly flowing at the after parties (yes, plural). And after a cocktail (or four), I maybe kinda sorta sent a drunk text (or two) to my Yummy friend. Luckily, there were no grammatical or spellings errors in it (it's the writer in me), but I may have sounded extra extra happy. And I may have greeted, "Hiiiiii" instead of a standard "hey," amongst other things. And he may have been on vacation. In another country.

In the grand scheme of embarrassing texts, it was not all that embarrassing. I've certainly had full on heart-to-heart drunk texting conversations with some of my girlfriends in the past. Only to wake up the next morning, nurse myself back to sobriety, re-read them, and say, "Huh?! What on Earth was I talking about?!"

Luckily, this was not one of those times. Whew!

The thing with drunken communication is that it always seems like a good idea at the time. Sweet, even. But the morning after, when the hangover wears off, it becomes apparent that, uh, it was not such a good idea.

Oops. My bad.

Guess that's what the 20's are for -- enduring slightly embarrassing moments and lots 'o growing pains. I've had my share.

Have you?

Anyway, it's always fun when "Drunk Alicia" makes an appearance. Heck, I may even be drunk right now.




  1. LOLLOL! Girl, this is funny. Ain't nothing wrong with a drunk appearance or two. What did your yummy friend say?

  2. Haaa!!! So glad to have the HEYYYYYY definition! I'm dying laughing right now. Sooo funny. All I have to say is I'm reeeaaaallllly glad there was no texting back in the day when I was in college and a fun youngin' I'd have gotten in quite a bit of trouble.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  3. Been there.

    Done that! :) LOL!

    I resisted the temptation this weekend. I was at a wine tasting and was feeling a buzz. I wanted to send a text but opted not too...this time! :)

  4. you are too funny! Thanks for the explanation of heyyyyy!

  5. I call it "drexting" and am almost to the point of having to turn off my phone on a night like that b/c I totally agree - I think it's SUCH a good idea that night. Ugh. :)

  6. SMH - pretty much that should be illegal. I haven't done a drunk text in a lonnng time but the worst was sending a very sexy text to my now husband. Problem was... I sent it to the wrong person who was actually an ex flame and he thought I was trying to rekindle. Darn shame.

  7. Can't say that I have ever been drunk. I think I got my alcohol tolerance level from my dad's side of the family. LOL. However, I do know about the growing pains of the 20s.

  8. Hahaha! The title of this alone cracked me up! And yes, Drunk Alicia sounds very fun!

  9. OMG this is the best post. I think about this, um, a lot! also twitter. someone just hide my phone or change the password when I take out the wine glass, kay? awesome.

  10. I have sent some tipsy texts many of times! I somehow manage to keep it together thankfully! Drunk Alicia would love Drunk Shelly! bahahaha! :)

  11. @Shelly: I say we have a date night -- you come to NYC or I'll come down to NC (it's NC, right?)

    @YUMM -- Never been drunk. Wow... what's that like?

    @Mamaonetothree -- Ditto! Gotcha!

    @Aisha: OH.... MY... GOSH!!!!


I love reading what you have to say!
