MIL can't/doesn't drink much. her husband gets "sentimental" aroud a dozen beers, and slides into slack jawed oblivion after that. we watched him go through the arc at the nieces wedding, did some math and were a little horrified at the results. ok more htan a little. at least he just sat there, he's not loud, not beligerant, not much of anythign... i guess he's in a near constant state of pickled-ness by now.
Well, it could be much worse ("it" = his behavior/reaction to drinking so much), eh? I guess there's your silver lining!

agreed... at teh wedding, there was another guest who was getting "fun obnoxious" on teh dance floor, but she was getting dangerous too - trying the worm in teh middle of everyone, climbing up on teh tables, that kind fo thing. i am appreciative (i guess taht's what you can call it) that MIL's husband isn't loud, obnoxious or dangerous when drinking.

especially at my house!!
