8 Facts on the morning after the night before

Fact 1: I had a great weekend.

Fact 2: I had too much wine.

Fact 3: People who know me won't be surprised at Fact 2.

Fact 4: I am old enough to know that if you go bed at 4am the rest of the day is like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube.

Fact 5: The kids don't have any consideration for Fact 4.

Fact 6: I can't have drunk enough last night if I am still thirsty today.

Fact 7: I had forgotten that Pixie also doesn't know how to say "No, no more for me thanks".

Fact 8: I am old enough to know better, young enough to have done it anyway.

Fact 9: if you can order the previous 8 facts in the right numerical order there is no way that you drank enough.

Steve, suffice to say that I am decidedly "liverish" today. I went to visit a friend in hospital and almost claimed the empty bed next to her!

Oh gosh! the memories you evoke!! One of my friends gave up drinking just because she couldn't stand the morning afters!
Me... well I don't seem to get hangovers any more, but that is more good luck than good planning- or lack of intake! It is not always true that you get wiser with age! Heh!

As long as you had a good time, that's all that matters!

Unfortunately, being that I'm "liverish" even without the demon drink, it's a pleasure long denied me. I have to live vicariously through the drunkeness of others - so good on you!

Rol, as a rule I only drink to make others more interesting! Having said that, today was a much better day. More tea anyone?

Pixie said...

someone, meeting me for the first time, said that if I was a friend of the Sagittarians, then I must like a drop. Ha! and she went to bed a few hours before me I'll have you know. Unfortunately she also had to get up earlier and deal with parental responsibilities. I am recovering. Yes, more tea please. Much more tea for a few days. I'm still smiling though. Love Pixie

ah this is better. A good old reminder of how grim it feels when you drink too much.

I am enjoying my month of no alcohol so far - I stay awake later, I am jollier - can't think of any other positive things actually. Who am I kidding? I want a drink!!!!

RB, you go polish your halo honey and rest happy that I have had your share!!
