Tonight I am doing something very, VERY out of the ordinary. I am drinking wine. I never drink wine. Beer is my sin, bourbon my church. When I say never drink wine, I mean I never, ever drink wine.
But, I had no other booze in the house, and it’s snowing, and I didn’t feel like driving anywhere, so I’m drinking one of the bottles of wine the wife had in the pantry. I can’t say that I like it.
Anyway, after a little math with the alcohol content of this wine compared to the alcohol content of the beer I usually drink, I figure I’ve drank the equal of 13 twelve ounce bottles of beer. For a guy my size and weight, and figuring the amount of time I spent drinking, that should give me a BAC of about .17 or so. I used to have a PBT but it went ka-blooey so I am estamated using a BAC chart I have from the DMV.
Anyway, many, many,many,:rolleyes: many times in my life I have been .17 .
This doesn’t feel right. I feel much more tired than if I had drank 13 beers. I also have this suspision that I’m going to have a monster headache in the morning, something beer never does to me. The biggest point though, is that i don’t feel very drunk, though I know I am.
Does the type of liquor one consumes, though altogether equal in alcohol content to other forms of liquor, determin what sort of “buzz” a person will have?
