Normally, a glass of wine with dinner is a treat that I save for weekends. I often work (or write this blog) on week nights, and wine can make me less productive.
Also normally, I am a compulsive consumer of health information.
Recently, my health information began to conflict with my wine policy. Experts seem to agree that, for women, a glass of wine a day has serious health benefits, including, perhaps, denser bones, less arthritic inflammation, and less likelihood of heart disease.
So last Sunday, I began a daily-glass-of-wind-with-dinner routine. Not a big glass, mind you, but maybe two inches worth. The good news is that I have not noticed that I am less productive.
On Thursday morning, I mentioned to Peter that I had slept extremely well this week and wondered if that was due to my new wine regime.
Thursday night, I did not sleep well. I should keep my thoughts to myself.
