Reasons To Be Cheerful #48: Mid-Week Drinking

29 Aug


As I write this post, slumped in my chair, I can’t help but wonder if it was all worth it just for the sake of my blog, but then of course I rally: my art is all. Dedication to the cause has seen me drinking white wine at the rate of a thirsty elephant. And on a Wednesday too. Unnecessary? Probably (definitely). But there are, as always, a few reasons to be cheerful…

1. Mornings Are Fun

Singing in the shower, laughing when you bump into the door and casually talking to yourself in the morning are all signs that you are in the pre-hangover stage of the hangover. AKA, you’re still a bit drunk. It might sound good, but it’s all downhill from here. And at the bottom of the hill lies work. Because it’s a Thursday.

2. Learning to Appreciate The Office Bathroom

Spending inordinate amounts of time in the loo when at work is normally the result of one of three things: excessive tiredness, excessive drinking or troubles of the heart. During times like these you can really learn to appreciate a decent, nice smelling toilet. It also helps you to let go of your long-standing annoyance at the broken lights in two of the four toilet cubicles. It’s easier in the dark.

3. An Excuse To Be Grumpy

As you struggle to muster up a non-threatening ‘Morning’ to your colleagues you don’t have to feel bad about not being the ray  of light that they would normally encounter. Moodiness as a result of hangover is fully accepted. You simply need to communicate the state of affairs to a couple of key people and you should be left to stew for the rest of the godforsaken day.

Oh fuck off!

Oh fuck off!

4. Learning Your Lesson

‘I’m never drinking again’ is something that I never say. I’m a realist. Not getting smashed on a Wednesday night again? Much more achievable. Lesson learned.

(REASONS TO BE PISSED OFF: The head/stomach pain and the burger consumed at midnight)

Was this ever really necessary?

    Yes, midnight burgers are necessary. What are you drinking for, if not for late night naughty meals??
