I can hear everyone cheering. I did it. I followed through with posting part two of… TBD? Can you hear me high fiving myself? That’s the sound of reaching goals people.
This is going to be short because I’m slightly hung over from Dave Matthews and Snoopy Doggy last night. And therefore I have succumbed to the bittersweet Sunday cycle of eat and sleep. That’s it. Just eat, sleep and repeat.
So my advice to you today is to learn how to manage your hang over.
Over the years I have heard some crazy remedies / solutions to preventing and curing hangovers some of them seem reasonable and some of them just straight up desperate but, everyone has that one thing that works for them. Find it. Nobody wants to be the person who misses brunch because their head is pounding, the room is spinning and every time they roll over they feel like they’re going to vom. I’ve been there.
In college, my roommate’s boyfriend swore on the magical powers of chocolate milk. I don’t really remember if you’re supposed to drink it the next morning or maybe before you even start drinking to coat your stomach or something like that. I’m pretty sure it’s not WHILE you’re drinking – vodka and chocolate milk… no thank moooo.
I’ve also had friends who took vitamin B6 before they started drinking. That sounds reasonable. Not sure what it does but it sounds like something that would prevent a hangover.
And then there is the always popular remedy of just keep drinking. Hair of the dog and all that jazz. The only way I find this works is if you wake up still a little bit drunk – then it is easy to keep drinking. If I’ve already reached hangover mode – a shot of anything just makes me want to gag.
You could always try the healthy way of a good ol’ fashioned work out. I have this one friend who would insist on running off his hangover. This seems absurd to me – especially in the summer time when the sun is out. Although, I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Sweating out the alcohol? Sure. Just not my style.
Or you can opt for the Colorado way – smoke a joint. Duh. Wikipedia says: It is commonly believed that THC, the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis, is an effective hangover remedy. THC may help ease the main symptoms of hangovers: nausea and headache. The advantage is two-fold; as once a sufferer’s nausea has abated, and his/her appetite is stimulated, hypoglycemia becomes easier to resolve. There ya go guys. It’s science.
Also, invest in a pair of really big, face covering, extra dark sunglasses. (see below)
Once you find what works for you, it’s like finding the holy grail. You’ll never miss a Sunday full of activities due to being bedridden after a crazy Saturday night.
Well, that’s all I have for you guys today. Oh, and don’t let your daughters grow up to be Miley Cyrus.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
