Slips and Slipping

One of my very favorite AA sayings is this one from the –really—old timers:

“Under Every Skirt’s A Slip”

You can just hear one AA saying that to another when a gal walks by.

The best definition of a slip is this from Sisater Maureen:

“A slip is the willful ingestion of the substance of my addiction.”

The keyword is willful. So that rules out picking up the wrong glass and getting a surprise mouthful, and it may rule out communion wine, depending on your beliefs. But it rules in the chocolate chip cookie or following along when you see the gal or guy walk by.
