I hope that you are asleep by now and will feel better tomorrow.
know that we love you and send warm thoughts your way.
And I'll put Bailey's on the list of things with which to toast, if we ever manage to hook up! LOL!
I love it too. I always gift myself a bottle for Christmas when they put it on special. This Christmas i was a little hypo and bought three bottles - 2 as gifts to my cousins (along with too much chocolate and bunches of other stuff... sigh!)
Coordinating with the cousins was harder than expected due to their travelling most of the time, and in mid-January I gave up on that. At home we'd also had wines of various types to go with different holiday foods, so I'd been drinking more. When i finished my own bottle of Baileys, which took a while, I opened one of "my cousin's." I went through that one lickety split however, which set off big alarm bells! I decided then to put the 3rd bottle in the cellar for next year, but i dislike going down there, so it sat around for a week unopened... until last night.
Kind of having a general issue right now, because dad, who really shouldn't drink, and can get habitual about it, is now requesting a steady supply of the "holiday" port, and came home with a white wine the other day too. I am not happy for me or for him to have a steady supply of alcohol at home right now. I need to be dry for a couple weeks, after which I will be ok going back to my occasional drink. I was starting to drink too often... once i get that way, if it's available it can really escalate. Dad is worse - he is in total denial about his attraction to alcohol, so there is no controlling what he buys, and trying to talk to him is useless (unless one desires to be insulted, or worse, blamed for his "use" - to call a spade a spade).
That said... I am glad I had the Bailey's around that night. Nobody else touches Baileys, so I wasn't going to get yelled at the next day, as I would had I had any of the other things available. Plus I love Irish coffee beyond it's relaxing effect.
It was comforting. (now heating up the plain baileys was a waste of baileys... as far as taste or comfort goes. that part was pure "use" ... spades again.
Now this bottle is open though, i shall have to be very careful.
