I was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1962. When I was growing up, my family moved around because my father was advancing in his career. I went to 4 different schools and lived in 5 different houses in my 3rd and 4th Grade year. We also moved in my 9th Grade year when I was 14. I learned to fit in wherever I went, or I accepted it when I did not. My therapist says I’m adaptable. I learned to entertain myself by performing in my room in front of my mirror and dreaming about my future. I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing life through my quirky lens. I have an English/Applied Communications degree. I’m a humorist because I’m not good at science and I’m a recovering alcoholic who likes to entertain or inspire.
My blog is a swizzle stick stirring information, inspiration, and a little sass. As my friend Bonnie says, “When you are living a sober life this is all you can swizzle.” I hope you enjoy my concoctions. Cookie Stoner
