About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Teensy Bit Too Much

Beer, that is.

But, I digress. First of all, the actual bowling sucked last night. I had 3 of the worst games I've had in a very, very long time. I don't recall my scores (best to forget them), but I do know that only one of them broke 100. And I think it was a 101. Gawd. It was embarrassing. So, we only won one of our games (thanks to Crystal; otherwise, it would've been a total scratch), and while we were pondering why we (ie, "me") were doing so poorly, we stumbled upon the reason: The bar was out of Bud Light, so we'd been drinking Miller Lite!

Dammit. That shit threw off my game!

Of course, I still drank plenty of it. Too much, perhaps, as is touched upon above. And after the bowling, some of us lingered at the alley's bar and had more beers. Again, not truly needed because this morning I had a head that weighed about 100 lbs. Thankfully, I don't teach on Fridays, so I get to sleep in if I want to, and I took advantage of that, then took two Advil and have drunk (yes, that's the correct verbiage) two bottles of water so far.

Ugh...how is it that beer can go down so smoothly (even that crap Miller Lite), yet it can mistreat me so thoroughly the next day? All I did was love you, beer; why can't you love me back?

Good thing you can rest up today. :)

Oh man, I'd thought you drank 100 can of beer. I didn't realized you were talking about bowling score. Nitwit of me!

All I did was love you, beer; why can't you love me back?

That question ranks right up there with the meaning of life...

Miller lite is usually nicer to my head than the Bud lite - that's odd :-). Hangovers make a great day on the couch with a good book! Enjoy your non-school-day :-)!

I think there's some evidence that suggests "Lite" beers give really bad hangovers.

Recover well! Hopefully they have your brand and your score improves next time.

You can kind of compare bowling to running, maybe. We all have our good and bad days. And when you are not using proper fuel (ie. Miller Lite), it might affect the overall outcome!?

So... on somewhat of a sidenote, how does one know when it is accurate to use drunk over drank? Is it because you have the word HAVE in front and then you use drunk, otherwise you would use drank?

Ugh, I hate it when that happens. Beer gives no love sometimes. So true.

Miller Lite has screwed me up many times. Bud Light is special sauce that gives you wings ... Miller Lite just creates a curse, like your bowling for example.

Make sure you dont drink Miller before your next race ... its bound to lead to trouble. Stick to the Bud :)

Kevin said...

Bud Light over Miller???? You gotta be kidding me. YUCK!

Marcy said...

Chica, you just need to go straight to the martinis LOL

If someone could just invent a hangover pill!

I ask my Shiraz the very same question, but alas, she has yet to answer.

P.O.M. said...

I'm worried that might be me tonight. But eh, at least I got my long run in already!

Mary Gee said...

I cannot imagine bowling without consuming large quantities of beer... hence I don't bowl anymore. But I sure used to!

Beer and bad bowling still sounds like a winner to me even miller Light.

I can not believe the bugs on your face. You look like my bumper after a country road drive.
