Barfy-Barferson

I distinctly remember telling Jerry before we went bowling last night: "I don't want to drink too much. I have the 8 on the 8th tomorrow, and I don't want to be hungover for the run."

Too bad I don't listen to myself.

Before bowling, we met up with some of our homies for dinner and drinks, and I had a beer there, and well, it was delicious. So, once we got to the bowling alley, I just kept on drinking. And the result was that I had WAY too much, and today I am paying the price for such over-indulgence.

It's been a long time since I've puked from drinking, but this morning I was praying to the porcelain god, and I was asking myself why I can't practice some level of self-control. Thus, I've spent all day as a worthless piece of crap, and I'm only now, at 3 pm, beginning to feel like I'm on the mend.

So, because I just ate my first piece of food for the day, and am now able to keep that and the water down, I don't think I'm in any condition to run 8 miles. I guess I'm gonna have to defer the run and do it tomorrow. Right now I need some more to eat, and I need to have about a gallon more water.

Remind me next week for bowling that I must listen to myself and SLOW DOWN with the booze. I mean, seriously, I'm not 21 anymore.

Oh Jess. It's the fact you were subconsciously celebrating the close of another term. I predict you will do it again when fall semester ends.

Jess said...

hahah oh man Jess sounds like you had an awesome fun night though...even though you aren't feeling so great this morning!

Ha, that bowling get you every time. Bowling alleys are made to drink, bowl and smoke! Eight BEvERages on the Eighth might be easier.

Yuck...hope you are feeling better. The water should do you some good.

teacherwoman said...

Oh boy. That's no fun! But you had fun, right? that is important! :)

Wes said...

Ummm... That wouldn't be any fun for us... :-)

MCM Mama said...

Ouch! Hope you are feeling better by now. One thing I hate about drinking now that I'm older is that my hang over starts about 3:00am and lasts well into the next day.

I'll be running my 8 on the 8th tomorrow too, so you'll at least have a virtual running partner.

Mary Gee said...

I used to always drink too much at the bowling alley and throw gutter balls. Eeek. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh wow!

J~Mom said...

Hope you are feeling back to normal now!

MN Mom said...

The question I wonder is what was the effect the drinking had on your bowling game?

Another thing--is it effect or affect I always get them confused.

I am reading Breaking Dawn too, love it.

I used to drink, but I was starting to develop a bowling habit. :)

Crystal said...

Yep, I wasn't up to par yesterday either. Pretty much felt like crap until about 2pm or so..no puking at least. It was all the drink bribes that got us in trouble!

keith said...

Hair of the Dog, Jess. That's my only advice.

On second thought, don't take drinking advice from a person who dabbles in twelve step programs.

SJ Goody said...

Oh that sucks!!! I have to remind myself frequently that I can't hang like I used to!
