MONDAY, JANUARY 15th, 2018: What does fun taste like? I’ve forgotten…
As predicted, the second week of Dryanuary saw the dam burst, as many of our contestants found the bottom of a beer bottle instead of tapping into the well of self control. Wine was consumed, parties were thrown and many of you collectively said “fuck this, I’m out!”.
Which we wholeheartedly applaud. This isn’t a vision quest meant to drive you into a hallucinogenic frenzy of beer bottles and whiskey tumblers. Dryanuary is meant to be a fun reset from the excesses of the holiday season – how you approach that reset, and for how long, is always the most fun part of this yearly event. Some of you have rediscovered the glory of early morning sunrises without a hangover, while others have embraced a new commitment to time outside with kids.
We fully expect to enjoy drinking once it comes around again in February. But until then, we can enjoy mornings that start a bit more clear headed, and nights that end with hot chocolate instead of a tumbler of whiskey (damn I miss that tumbler of whiskey). If you only lasted a week – great! If you are still going strong – well done! We think you all kick ass.
If you are out – enjoy some drinks for your sober comrades. If you are still in, the tickets only start piling up from here. So stay strong, hold steady and resist the urge to bust open that beer that has been taunting you for more than two weeks. Updated standings as of Monday, January 15th, 2018:
