Alright so those of you who know me know that I am a tequila slut.
I will quaff any tequila brought near me.
Phrases like “Tequila is an upper”, “Tequila gives your party a special boost”, “Every boozy night should be started off with AT LEAST one tequila, just to perk you up and change your party. In a good way” are probably nothing new to any of you. I know I have been spouting those words for years and probably boring my friends to tears at the same time but for now I thought I truly had to share a little something something with you.
A long while ago my awesome AMAZING friend Smart Tart became the first person I had ever met who ONLY drank tequila.
At the time I thought she was nuts, I mean really, we all know tequila is the devil! On two separate occasions her and her man Az tried very hard to show me the correctness of their ways, only to have me sneak the beers in anyways. First night we demolished 5 bottles of the old Jose Cuervo gold, alright, this was MOSTLY us, though there were a number of other folk there who did have the occasional shot. The second time we did it, it was just the three of us and we polished off three and a half bottles of Jose.
Ok, that’s surely enough to kill several horses right?
On both morning afters I was a pasty wreck of a man, I felt like butter that had been spread over too much toast… whilst Az and Smart danced happily around me with grins and smiles. That last time was over two years ago.
Now, some years later, I have found myself advising Emma to follow Smart and Az’s example so that she can drink without getting bloated. She has told me twice already what a wonderful experience it is and how little impact carried over to the next day!
So with all this positive re-enforcement I thought I better give this a bash at my next boozeup.
So Steve and I are always trying to one-up each other. We become like oversized toddlers on crack, joshing and laughing and daring each other all the time. Well he was in London for a meet up last night and I gave the tequila only the old college try.
MAN o’ MAN did it work wonders”!
After work I went for drinks with my team at where I had 2 tequila’s and 2 non-alcoholic ginger beers.
After that I met up with Steve and we went balls to the wall. We had consumed another 4 tequila’s each by the time we got our table at the restaurant we were at.
I had another 8 or so tequila’s with dinner and I succumbed to the Steve Pressure and had two little Korean beers.
About every third tequila got a ginger ale ordered as well (they had no ginger beer).
When I left, I went back tot he hotel where I roped two of my colleagues into more drinks and ended up with ANOTHER 3 tequila’s in my gullet…
I went to bed at sometime, it felt like 1am perhaps… not entirely sure to be fair…
I woke up this morning at 7:30am, no headache, no nausea, almost no sign of the booze I had consumed the night before.
Seeing as how I LOVE tequila, I can see no reason why this should not be my standard mode of drinking from now one!
I love you Smart for showing me the light, and I love you Emma for making me see, and I love you Tequila, because you are just fucking fantastic!
