Cheers!


The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words which were better unspoken.
Homer (800 BC - 700 BC), The Odyssey

Sitting pretty on the bar top. Luring the unsuspecting. Seducing the addicted. What is it that pulls us towards alcohol? Tastes bitter, gives us a million health problems, restricts us from driving back home, is heavy on the pocket… in short, no logical reason to get up and order that tempting glass of wine. But then, guilty pleasures don’t see no logic!

You know what, I love to see what happens to people after they’ve had one too many. Yeah, I know I’m being cheap, but it’s fun to watch them go crazy! I mean, some people go through complete personality changes...so extreme is this transformation, it’s almost fascinating! Even the most silent, ‘do-gooders’ turn into wild party animals! And when someone’s on a high, they start babbling incessantly! It’s enthralling to see how much crap one can be loaded with…or knowledge, for that matter!

It’s almost like watching a very entertaining movie, to see these poor folks go crazy! Someone calls up their ex boyfriends and proceeds to tell them exactly what they think about them…while others call their current girlfriends and narrate in great detail, their sexiest fantasies! Very explicit stuff, not for kids! Sometimes though things could get very personal and that’s not a very good sight and that’s when I turn my attention towards other non personal stuff…

Anyway, whoever said drinking is a bad habit obviously never saw any of this. Besides, you know what the best part is? The next day, when the party animals wake up with a hangover, it’s most fun to tell them the events of the previous night and watch them go very very red!! So I say drinking is really enjoyable…for the ones who drink, as well as for those who don’t!


Note: Please don’t think I’m evil!

If you ever get the chance, do watch the movie 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf'. Liz Taylor in probably her best role. The topic of course is quite related to what you wrote here.

So in case someone feels shy of telling his sexual fantasies to his current girlfriend, then all he has to do is pretend that he is drunk and blabber everything 'in great detail'!! If his girlfriend didn't like his explicit description, then he can always excuse himself 'Darling I was drunk', on the other hand if she does like it then he got both sides of coin. Didn't he?

Drinking that much actually can be quite dangerous, imagine a situation where you call up your ex-girlfriend and tell her the fantasies and call up your current girlfriend and tell her what you were supposed to tell your ex! Now that's some disaster. One more reason not to have ex-girlfriends but have multiple current ones ;-)

Heard that by drinking ur dead cells inside the brain, are washed out...so giving more space for new cells...occassional drinking is not bad, u just hafta control how much u drink

Stone said...

and it becomes a nuisance when they stat breaking glasses, pick fight with everyone ard.
And funnier r the ones who start crying, ya they more difficult to control, and at last driving them home is also a pain.
