I think I shattered the doctor's opinion of me. I wanted to find out if it was okay for me to drink anything with alcohol in it. I mentioned that it is my habit to drink one beer every evening between 10 and 11pm, and asked if I could resume that habit now that my meds have changed.
He looked at me quizzically and said "BEER, not wine?" and I said yes, it keeps me awake. He answered that it puts him to sleep, and I explained that when I drink wine I fall asleep for 3-4 hours, but then I awake and cannot get back to sleep. I have no such problem with beer.
He looked straight at me and said "Do you mean to tell me that you drink a beer every night of the week?" and after I nswered yes, he appeared to be perplexed. My daughter said "You sound like Otis the town drunk in Mayberry." And I said "One beer does not a drunk make." I have the feeling that both of them would approve if I were drinking wine instead.
Am I right?
