The Time has Come............
On Saturday I received a text message from a friend who invited me to an impromptu party....... she had liquor and wanted some friends to share with........
She invited mini me too........... how could I say no??? (especially since I have been saying "honestly I can't." "No not possible" for almost 3 years. When she texted me I thought I really don't have an excuse anymore - girls night out - ummm - could be fun right???
So mini me came here and picked me up - and a casserole I had made (it was dinner time and the responsible side of me could NOT see a night of drinking without some food on our stomachs)
We sat and chatted ...then ate the casserole (which was a bit dry and not one of my best - but hey it was food)........... we then chatted some more - the sun went down - it felt late and we hadn't even started to drink. A check of the time showed it was only just after 8 !! HEY when did the sun start going down so early??!!
To be honest - I have never gone to a "drinking party".......... where the purpose of the party is just to drink - and tell wild stories....... I needed some lessons..... I figured the first step was to actually get a drink in me........ good start no??
I had approximately 6 ounces of Bailey's - yeah I know not exactly a boozing type of drink........but it's all I drink these days. My friends had one drink each. We sat around chatting - it was very nice and comfy....... then I started yawning - and we all know how contagious yawning is...........
Then we checked the time -- it was 11:30 and we were all done in. In fact we hadn't had a drink in so long we were safe to drive............ so no sleep over -- no drunken pillow fights.... I came home to my lil apartment and a very indignant Missy who bitched at me till I was in bed about staying out SO late!!
Sunday morning - about 5 hours after I had closed my eyes - my eyes popped open....... what was that banging???!!!
OH MY GOD -- it was my head. Throbbing!!
I sat up and the bloody room spun around.
I quickly laid back down and closed my eyes.......... how many drinks HAD I had the night before ......... yup only 1 - a big one - but nevertheless only 1............
I finally managed to get myself upright and put the coffee on - coffee would make me feel better right??? NOOOOOO not even close - it went down the drain.
I collapsed on the sofa and closed my eyes - this too shall pass !!!
And there I stayed -- all day long!!
The headache finally eased sometime around mid afternoon..... I finally managed to get some homemade bean and bacon soup down me around 5.....
And -- believe it or not -- at 6 p.m I was pulling some clothes on cause I had another party to go to............ this time not a drinking party but a make up party -
It would seem I am turning into a party animal.............
BUT seriously - I am just way too old for this shit!!
I think the next party I want to go to is one where I get my ass whipped - or have electric currents run through my body - or some other form of torture - my recuperation time is ohhh so much quicker
