Thankful Tuesdays: youthful hangovers
To be completely honest, this week I'm thankful that hangovers only last a day. Yikes! I say those words with thanks, but also with the knowledge that in my youth, a hangover only lasted a morning, and to overcome it, all I needed was some water, Tylenol and a greasy breakfast. Lately, that's just not the case. In fact, it seems the morning after headache and tummy ache has now turned into a full day of misery. I must admit, I'm beginning to worry that as the years tick by, these awful, grumbly times will turn into days and then weeks of feeling like butts.
I imagine my life will go something like this: It's Saturday night. I drink. It's Sunday, I feel awful. It's Monday, I still feel awful. It's Tuesday, the awful persists. This will carry on until it's Saturday again. I'll feel better. I'll drink. And then Sunday will roll around and I'll feel awful. Monday, still awful. Well, you get the idea. If this is in fact how things go when you're old, I fear, I'll have to quit drinking. I just can't sustain a life where I feel like butts all day, everyday. I kind of like it when I don't notice my insides or my brain. It's nice when there's nothing pounding or gurgling. Also nice, being able to eat without instantly wanting to throw up.
So, I guess what I'm saying is, here's to youthful hangovers.
What are you thankful for this week?
