MOLLY SCHOEMANN: True or false: Drinking was invented immediately after family gatherings were invented.
AKIE BERMISS: Isn’t drinking how babies get made in the first place? Have I been doing it wrong all these years?
DANI ALEXIS RYSKAMP: FALSE. Drinking was invented in order to have a way to tolerate planning a family gathering.
MOLLY SCHOEMANN: I am a fan of drinking in general. But somehow that sudden fuzzy feeling of mellow togetherness that you get from having that first drink at a family gathering…is priceless. Drinking and an extra large number of family members in one house at one time just go very well together.
