Remember the days (back then you were writing dayz) when you’d go out and get absolutely trashed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night? And then you’d spend all of Sunday recovering? The only reason you held down that god-awful part-time job (the one with the boss who used to make you climb a ladder and dust the top of the shelves so that he could look up your skirt) was to drop it all on drinks. Okay, and maybe a new outfit, or two.
You’d invariably end up somewhere seedy, eating something equally disgusting to match (the usual suspects were a filthy kebab or KFC chips) while you hailed a cab in too-high heels. Your only saving grace?You never, ever, (ever!) took them off.
Then, you’d do it all over again the following week. It was like living out Groundhog Day, but much more fun. And the lead guy was cute. Real cute.That shit isn’t so cool these days. Not cute guys—drinking like a sailor and eating like Oprah Winfrey on a binge.
ALL WASHED DOWN WITH A GREEN JUICE SIPPED OUT OF A HIPSTER STRAW.
Now, we’re all waking up, starting the day with a tai chi class on a hill overlooking the surf as the sun rises. Aligning our chakras for the day ahead. Coming home to activated almonds and some hot water with lemon. Followed by our second course: almond milk and chia seed porridge served in a jar. All washed down with a green juice sipped out of a hipster straw. My, how times have changed!
Here’s one of my favourite ways to start the day. Iced cold water. Cucumber. Lemon. Serve. Sip it all day like Amanda Bynes does vodka. Boom! MC
