Today’s post is brought to you by half a jug of Pimms. Will I regret it later? We’ll see..
I’m just gonna start of by saying that I really don’t drink much these days; I might have a bottle of Koppaberg at a bbq with friends, but I pretty much never drink at home and I usual drive when I go out so I’ve turned myself into quite the lightweight over the years. This Pimms, however, is really good, and I’ll admit I had a coke with a splash of raspberry vodka before I started on the pitcher so this is quite out of character.
You’ll notice that my ability to spell correctly and use proper punctuation is unwavering though, and I think that’s a sign of a former grammar school girl. Other things I do when I’ve had a few too many..
Pee a lot
Everyone knows the deal with this right? Once you’ve been once, you set off a chain reaction of peeing frequently throughout the night. I like to tell people about this little fact too.
I don’t even have to be in a club with loud music, my volume just generally increases
Make up words
We all do this right? Half an hour ago I coined the term ‘cakey-cookie’
When I was 18, cheesy chips from the kebab shop next to Walkabout was my jam, but bread and pasta do the job nicely too
Solve a crisis
I’m full of answers when I’ve had a drink or two. They span from fixing someone’s zip to creating a solution for world peace.
Take too many photos
Normally on Snapchat, so at least the evidence disappears after a short amount of time, but occasionally they appear on Facebook..
Tell people how much of a lightweight I am
I feel like reminding people of this fact makes it more acceptable for me to be in whatever state I’m in. Oh, and I’ll tell them I don’t do this often either.
Disappear for lengths of time
I once locked myself in the bathroom at a friends house because I had hiccups
Be clumsy without realising it
I’m the sort of person that knocks something over, then is surprised by it falling because I didn’t realise it had anything to do with me.
Take off my shoes
If I wear heels, which is basically something I save for the work Christmas party each year and that’s it, at some point they will come off and they won’t go back on. I’m older and wiser now, so generally there’s a pair of roll up flats in my handbag.
Do you do any of these?
