Facebook 'I Drink' Statuses Explained - Why Every Woman You Know Suddenly 'Drinks Tequila'
So you might be noticing that tons of women are changing their facebook statuses to things like, "I drink champagne," or, "I drink Redbull, but gosh do I miss those days when I drank whiskey!"
Confused? So was I until I received a chain message [Thanks, Kelly's mom! - Ed.] explaining that the posts are code for a woman's relationship status. And like the "I like it" Facebook status meme and bra color status meme before it, this fun little secret is all in support of breast cancer awareness.
The code for these things is pretty intense, and there's a whirlwind of confusion about what's going on, so I've posted the cheatsheet below.
Secret Status: Round 2
It has been proposed that us GIRLS, did something special in Facebook to help gain consciousness of Breast Cancer. It's so easy that I'd like you to join us to make it spread!
Last year it was about writing the color of the bra you were wearing in your FB status... and it left men wondering for days why did the girls have colors (apparently random) in our status.
This year it has to do with our love relationships, in other words, for the moment you are going through with your relationships.
What do you drink?
tequila: I'm a single woman
rum: I'm a touch and go woman
champagne: I'm an engaged woman
redbull: I'm a woman in a relationship
beer: I'm a married woman
vodka: I'm the "other one"
sprite: I'm a woman that can't find the right man
whisky: I'm a single woman but with friends that won't stop partying
liquor: I'm a woman that wishes she was single.
gin: I'm a woman that wants to get married
Now all you need to do is write down the answer for your situation in
your FB status (don't reply this email, just put it in your status).
Also, cut and paste this message and send it to all your girl-friends
as a message.
The Bra game reached the news. Let's make this one make it too and see
how powerful women are!!!!!
PS: NEVER reveal to the men.
Apparently I am defying the laws of feminism here by sharing this stuff with you guys, but I'm kind of curious: how much does a Facebook status really do for Breast Cancer awareness?
Don't get me wrong, I think disease prevention and research is just as important as the next person, but I also know that my Facebook statuses usually consist of rap lyrics and sarcastic comments written in aLtErNaTiNg CaPs, so I'm not convinced that the "What's on your mind?" box is necessarily the most appropriate place in my life for me to be placing the "Serious disease prevention" egg. Ya know?
No matter what, though, I guess the important thing here is that everyone's (somehow?) doing it for a good cause. Bare minimum they're doing it for the lols -- and you can never have too many of those.
