I'm not sure why this happens, but I'm sure it happens to you too. So you're having a few drinks either out at a bar, or at a party of some sort and you slam the first one so you can feel the alcoholic buzz quicker and release your inhibitions. Then you just nurse a few, but before you know it, you've had just that one too many and you're suddenly drunk. So now you're acting like a blinking idiot, unable to really control your loudness and movements and everything seems hilarious. The night rolls on and before you know it, it's into the wee hours of the morning and the party's going to be coming to an end soon. This is the part I'm not sure why it happens... it's like your brain then goes "Holy hell! I'm gonna have to stop drinking soon, so I'd better get the most bang for my buck... let's do shots!!!" And the sensible part of your brain has long been sleeping for the night, so you allow yourself to pour whatever alcohol is left over from mixing drinks into the shot glass and before you know it, you've got 3 or 4 shots under your belt. It's like your brain says "okay! you're not quite drunk enough to pass out yet, we've got limited time to get us there... here we go.. hang on!"
Well, at the end of it all, I didn't pass out, I sobered up just enough to say good night to my Si as he started his day, and I slept deep and heavy without wetting the bed or throwing up.
This is what I looked like last night after a day trip to Calgary to find an outfit (more can be seen in my facebook album). Thanks for the great Hindi Party, Sis... it was so much fun!!! Great food, great friends, great dancing and singing!!
