Hangover

by Joseph Grant

My head feels like pounded dog shit; how the hell much did I have to drink last night, I groan to myself as I roll over and see the remnants of what had probably been a good idea at the time, snoring her not so attractive as she had been last night ass awake with a boozy smile. Don’t you good morning me, honey, I hear myself saying as I sit up and feel the room vortex around me in an almost out-of-body experience and she gets up and staggers to the bathroom with a “Fuck you, you asshole!” my next door neighbor’s next door neighbors could probably hear. Funny, do you always go to bed with assholes, I hear myself screaming and collapse in nausea onto the bed, disturbingly reaching for the last of the tequila that caused this aching head and a hangover that should be one day be behind glass to be wondered and awed at and studied at the Smithsonian. She’s probably a nice girl, give her a chance, my wounded ego says as she storms out of the bathroom and slams the apartment door behind her, never to return. I will never drink again, I promise. Until next time.

Could have been worse. You could have had to gnaw your own arm off to get away.

We've all had mornings like that (minus the stranger in my case). And it so true... I will never drink again, I PROMISE... till next time. It also reminds me of how I always find religion whenever I get the flu.

Well-done, Oh Great Word Weaver!

Ha! Good one, Joe. It could have been a lot worse. At least he didn't wake up in Vegas.

Joe- can't say "been there, done that" but can say this gave me a good laugh. At least you didn't wake up married to her.

Hahaha!

Just don't drink most of a bottle of tequila at Adam's house...

He'll make you finish it.

TWO YEARS LATER!

Awesome six!
