PWI–Parenting While Intoxicated

…on good food, questionable judgment, and making life work

Parenting While Intoxicated’s Trip to the Holy Land

As it happens, several months ago the Parenting While Intoxicated corporate team was engaged by an esteemed organization, The National Bourbon Council.

The set-up was simple; attend a junket to the Middle East and introduce the indigenous peoples to their fine flavor of booze, Bourbon.

Well, it was simple until we started to have background checks.  It appears as though while most of Sparky’s college indiscretions have been purged thanks to some good friends up the Masonic food chain, it turns out that Erin was not as lucky.  Seems that “the saxophone” is considered an instrument of war in most of the Middle East, and after the Mossad conducted quick search of the internets, they were easily able to pull up some pictures of her wielding a particularly large-calibur device; her visa was denied.

Which brings us to where we are now.  Sparky, in Israel, with very little to no adult supervision and a sample case full of tasty brown beverages.  There’s really just no way to know how this will all play out, but rest assured, the PWI team will keep you fully informed and updated as the trip unfolds.

Sparky is a salaryman for an unspecified Fortune 200 company. But more importantly, he has a smoking jacket and entertains fellow bon vivants in his secret lair, The Manitarium.

He is married to a beautiful attorney who is a life-long vegetarian and was raised as an experiment by her meddling nutrition scientist parents. He can be found trying to save his kids from a life of vegetables...
