If I told you all of my hangover stories, you’d miss happy hour.
Maybe a couple. 30th birthday, we get hammered on tequila. The next morning, my mom calls and said she’d cooked me a birthday lunch, come on over. I get over there and I swear I have to chew each bite for 5 minutes, I can’t eat. All I want to do is sleep. So I finally get back home, kick it in the recliner.
Phone rings, it’s a buddy’s wife, lives up the street. Her (hot, OMFG hot) sister has to drive back home that afternoon, a few hundred miles, and her headlight is busted out. Buddy is at work, could I come down and change it? I stumble up the street, it’s damn hot. I get up there, she has the new headlight but no tools. I stumble back and get tools. Headlight is a bitch to change, I’m about all in. The wife brings me a Dr Pepper, gosh it hits the spot. I drink it and stumble back up the street just as hot, OMFG hot sister is pulling out.
The DP sets up a reaction and I have to pause in the middle of the street to puke up Birthday Lunch w/Foaming Dr Pepper just as hot, OMFG hot sister drives by. I’m sure she was impressed.
Tequila. Seems like the best hanovers are tequila generated. We got hammered on tequila, closed the bars. I have to leave for work at 5:00 AM, so it’s a short night. Luckily my crew is coming by to pick me up, so I can sleep on the 45 minute drive to work. But I’m so hammered they are afraid I’ll hurl, so they throw my passed out ass into the back of the pickup. Oh, and 35 miles or so of the drive are down rough dirt roads. I was none too perky when I got to work.
Or like the time we were drinking tequila and I come stumbling into work. I’m leaning up against the counter, trying to look as normal as possible and the boss walks by. “Rough night?” he asks. My cover was blown! How’d he know? Oh, I was holding my coffee cup crooked and had coffee running down my leg, didn’t even know it.
