That's the title of an article at CBS News.
More older American women than ever are drinking — and drinking hard, a new study shows.Interesting. I've known women who could drink men under the table, although I never found that particular attribute particularly attractive. In fairness, they didn't find me particularly attractive, either.
Most troubling was the finding that the prevalence of binge drinking among older women is increasing dramatically, far faster than it is among older men, the researchers noted.
Bell and I normally have a toddy or two on an afternoon. Normally an aperitif and a digestif. It puts a mellow glow on the day, and we're past the stage of having to help kids with homework and make sure that everyone is bathed and abed at a decent hour. It's just us, so we knock back a couple and spend some time in pleasant conversation before bedtime.
Maybe that's what they're talking about. Older women deserve the break.
