C.I. was about to start speaking (to college students, I think) and only had a few seconds. She asked Marcia what was wrong and when Marcia told her, she let loose a string of laughter. She assured Marcia that wasn't a problem and, of course, she should repost the snapshot as is.
So Marcia called me to check that out? (Rebecca and I have known C.I. forever. We all went to college together.)
I told Marcia it was not a problem and C.I. wasn't pretending when she laughed. I know her and you'll want to read tomorrow morning. I'm guessing that will be a full entry. Will it be blistering? Actually, no. As I'm reading the snapshot today, I think C.I. will actually have pity for the man.
But I'll tell you what I told Marcia in case anyone else is worried: We're talking about the woman who drank Don Henley under the table, okay?
Do you know how hard, back in the day, that was to do?
They were drinking straight vodka when the challenge was issued. (Actually, someone made an insult -- Joe Walsh? -- about women not being able to drink that much.) They didn't know what they were up against, One by one everyone crumbled except C.I. representing the women and Don Henley representing the men.
It was never a question who was going to win. Alcohol has very little effect on C.I. The only thing I've ever worried with regards to her drinking was that she'd get alcohol poisoning. (Because most of us would be drunk or passed out when she's really not even buzzed.)
What does that have to do with don't worry? Events after the all night drinking. No sleep on her part (I crashed myself) as she went through all the day's engagements including a photo session and TV interview without ever missing a beat. At one point, around 4:30 a.m., I noted her schedule for the day ahead and she laughed and said, "It's no big deal."
Nor is this. I could explain it in detail but it's in the snapshot if you read it and I'm sure she'll be noting those things tomorrow morning.
She'll come out smelling like a rose.
