Adrienne reminds me of something:

…which, sidebar, reminds me of a conversation I had with my boss about my contention that V8–the bevvie—is only consumed by people “over a certain age”. What say you—are you under 35 and do you drink V8, and if so, why?

This year has to be the year of tomato juice. During some pre-Redskins Food Network-viewing, I saw Sandra Lee prepare a cocktail with some tomato juice and thought, You’re 28 years old. Your body is punishing you for breaking the no-vodka rule, and punishing you even further for drinking whiskey after the vodka. The breakfast you cooked, through no fault of its own, is nauseating, and there aren’t enough electrolytes in this Gatorade. Perhaps it’s a placebo, but wouldn’t you feel a lot better if you had some tomato juice right now? It’s hard to give a definitive answer, but I intend to report back. Plus furthermore also a band I was in during college would occasionally include a Theremin player who called himself Tomato Bag. If I ever knew his real name, I’ve long since forgotten it.
