it's "what you do"


I never drank in California, or only on rare occasions. Yet in DC? All the freakin time. Am I a lush? Hmmm... I don't think so. See, when I go home to California I rarely pick up a drink. What is the need here? Well, it's "what you do". I don't know if people would know what to do with themselves if they didn't have the option. I had a friend who claimed to be an "east coaster" by nature and blood, and in his statements about this infamous "east coast" he made excuses for his drinking behavior in California, stating that's "what you do". Well, years later I found out he's right. No don't get me wrong, he's still a lush and that was just an excuse (I think he drank just to see where he'd wake up!), but it is "what you do" here.

That said, I'm going to get a drink...

I might suggest it's not the "what you do" that makes you drink in DC, but rather the constant barage of hearing "What do you do?" [for a living] you get in DC. You need to be drunk just to put up with that bile.
