Alcohol Crimps Writers Brain

A blogger who wished to remain anonymous, recently attended a July 4th bash where she downed several margaritas.

The consumption count is still under investigation but witnesses say it was estimated to be one too many.

After an official check up from a personal physician, the blogger was advised to get plenty of rest, drink plenty of water and avoid any alcoholic beverages during the next several days.

"I don't know why I did it but I did it good, or bad depending on how you look at it," the blogger said. "My brain is just kind of frozen right now and has produced an unusual writers block but I'm sure it will pass sometime later today."

Editors, although not amused by the situation, took into consideration that stress and deadlines of news writing have driven many writers to hit the bottle on occasion.

"We believe this is likely the specific cause for this brief alcoholic respite."

A landmark case, given that a legion of American writers (at least male ones)seemingly couldn't get their starters started without a a vat of whiskey in their belly.

Next year, When I do my annual 4th of July rib fest... I plan to have an ambulance cot and an IV hooked to a keg. Saves on the arm strain. Later Yall.
