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.
