i blame the bartenders
I start this post thanking coconut water for staving off what could have been a fierce hangover.
Last night was a holiday party. Open bar. Bartenders with an overly generous pour of vodka for my vodka & clubs. Watching the bartender pour my first drink made me think “hmmm, I better only have two…max”. Well, two turned into three, plus two beers. I am no light-weight when it comes to drinking. I did attend one of the top party schools in the country. However, that was many, many, (oh crap) many years ago. I don’t, rather, can’t drink like that anymore. But I can certainly handle 5 drinks without compromising my dignity in any way.
Needless to say, after 5 drinks, I was drunk. Not falling down, blacking out drunk. But happy drunk. And willing to blab some secrets drunk. Oooops. Well, not totally oops, but yeah, a small oops. I left the party and on my way home started to drunk text St. Elmo.
Feeling drunk and infinitely more comfortable spilling the beans… I told him his nickname. I would have told him eventually. But now he knows.
But anyhoo, waking up at 3:30AM insanely thirsty prompted me to do the smartest thing ever and drink a coconut water. With all its potassium and electrolytes, I do believe it was instrumental in preventing a hangover this morning. Yay for coconut water!
