Enquiring Minds Want To Know!


Since I’m currently feeling under the weather with an annoying cold (as you already know Agathe because I chatted with you earlier), I feel like the post couldn’t be more properly timed with the elements.

So I ask you all a very important question.  Is it better to have the long drawn out hangover or just to vomit the night of the damage and get it all over with?

Over the weekend someone who shall not be named was hungover.  Super hungover.  Like could barely move hungover.

And the kicker is that that sort of business apparently gets much worst as you age.  Me?  I wouldn’t know because I’ve never been hungover a day in my life.  I know!  It sounds too good to be true.  And it is!  I’m never hungover because when I drink more than three drinks I’ll most likely vomit violently that evening.  And that friends is why I hardly ever drink.  Don’t get me wrong, if I’m at your wedding, I’ll certain do the champagne toast and if it’s a friend I’ve not seen in five years, I’ll have a little wine while we catch up.  But for the most part I just don’t really enjoy drinking.  It’s difficult to explain to new people that my idea of a dull night is sitting at a bar watching others get tanked while I make up excuses and mocktails.  But I don’t miss it that much to be honest.  It’s expensive and kind of pointless, to be frank.  And with the alcoholism that runs rampant on both sides of my families (and everyone elses so it seems), I think my alcohol allergy is mostly for the best.

But I’d like to take a poll.  Would you rather have a long drawn out hangover worthy of fierce self loathing or a violent vomit where you think you might die for a second, but then feel good as new two minutes later while you wipe your mouth on your coat?  Looking forward to this discussion.

For the record, I have never wiped vomit on my coat, however if you are ever in that state, I will not judge you if you do.

    I would no doubt vomit and get it over with. Growing up in a small town of Northern Norway where moonshine was the drink of choice, I can to this day usually handle my share of alcohol. But not always. And less and less so with age.

    Vomit. When I was young, I could drink with the best of them. In my 30s, I had my first pass out experience ( in my car… in my parking lot).
    Never again. I rarely drink now and when I do, it is usually a glass of wine or a beer or two. And this is rare.
    I have not been hungover since that long ago time and am glad.

      I’ve never been able to hold my liquor but I think it’s actually a blessing in disguise. However those few minutes before you vomit are the worst of your life. The sweaty, heart palpitations as you surrender your body to the action which comes next knowing full well that you stupidly inflicted all this upon it, well it’s simply like none other! – Aja

      Wow Ginger that is rough! But have you ever had the stomach virus where you’re not sure which end of your body deserves the toilet more? Both my sister and I had that and lost weight from it. Then my Grammy got sick. 2013 The Winter of Everything Sucks! – Aja

      Vomitting works because of the immediate relief you feel after. It also makes you enjoy things you never thought you would enjoy like how the smell of toilet water is just so darn calming to you. Really though, they’re both awful. – Aja
