Drinking Like Mad Men
I am now in the fifth season of Mad Men. I knew if I started to watch it I will be addicted to it. What I love about the serious is the drinking. From the sounds (of bottle caps popping, ice dropping on the glass, and liquor being poured into the cup) to the expressions (the way the characters hold their cup, take a sip, and engulf the spirit), drinking takes center of the series. They drink to celebrate. They drink when they get upset. They drink for almost in any occasion and at any time of the day. As a result, I like to drink when I watch them drink. It’s part of the escaping experience. I like to drink, but I am not an alcoholic. The people around me don’t drink so I drink with the Mad Men. It’ll be sad when I get through the entire series, but for now I am enjoying it.
