Come Oct. 1...

Here's the latest in my monthly lifestyle experiments. Sober October will begin on 10/1/08. It's pretty simple. I will not drink alcohol for a month. I can still do the chicken dance, eat bratwurst, and enter a Stein holding contest...just no delicious German lagers.

"Well that's boring," you might say. And perhaps it will be. I really have no way of knowing, since I don't think I've gone 30 days without a drink...well...since I started drinking. That was likely somewhere in my mid-teens.

I'm blogging this one early, as the days leading up to the month long abstinence period will likely be intentionally filled with debauchery in a "binge and purge" effort before the long test.

Stay tuned.
