I'm not much of a drinker. In fact, I didn't take my first drink until about 10 yrs ago. I never drank when I was in college. To this day, I still consider myself a social drinker. I've only been drunk...ONCE in my life. And I'll never forget it.
It happened a few years ago. I had traveled back to my hometown to be a groomsman in one of my boys' wedding. My boy Roody, whom I'd met in 7th grade, was getting married. We've been tight since the 7th grade and I was happy to be standing at the alter to see him go down...i mean...get married. LOL
The night before the wedding, me and the fellas had decided to hit a local "shoe modeling" establishment for entertainment. (fyi...a shoe model is a woman who is nekkid and she models shoes...thus the term shoe model and not stripper...lmao). We had already decided that we would have fun that night. So, we started drinking...very early. I started the evening by drinking 3 cups of my favorite beverage of choice...Henny! I had the henny straight with no chaser. I really SHOULD have stopped there but I didn't...
I had the Hennessey before we even left the house to go to the shoe show. Then, when we get to the shoe show...I had 2 beers (Heineken). I drank those very fast because they were FREE. LOL. I really SHOULD have stopped there but I didn't...
Next, somebody had bought a round of drinks. This time it was Crown Royal. By this time I was REALLY feelin good. I really SHOULD have stopped there but I didn't...
I had 2 more beers after that. I dunno why. Maybe I got caught up in the moment of tryna keep up with Zell and Derrick? Who knows? LOL. I really SHOULD have stopped there but I didn't...
It was at this time that things really started to slow down around me. I didn't feel as good as I did earlier. The music slowed down. The shoe models did too. I wasn't really sure what was happening but i didn't feel good anymore. Instead of trying to get myself together, I decided to drink some bottled water. I thought that the water would settle my stomach. WRONG! It really made things worse.
I remember leaning on the bar and I was talking to a chick who was a shoe model in this particular establishment. We were high school classmates. We were catching up on old times. I don't even think that I noticed that she was nekkid b/c I the room was very "fuzzy". The last thing that I remember was telling her that "I'd be right back". I took 2 steps towards the bathroom...and then....I threw up. Damn! I threw up IN THE CLUB. I couldn't believe it. I staggered to the bathroom to finish "relieving my insides". I couldn't believe it...i was officially drunk. And embarrassed. Who throws up in a strip club? LMAO!!!!
After that, I remember getting the car keys from Zell. I had rode there with him. I told him that I need to rest in the car. He gave me the keys and I proceeded to fall asleep in the car. I dunno what happened the rest of that night. I missed out on it. And they never told me what happened. I remember being dropped off at my momma's house and falling asleep in my clothes. To make matters worse...Mrs12 nor Momma12 wasn't there to take care of me. I felt like crap the next morning. After 3 bottles of Sprite and no breakfast, I finally sobered up...and hour before the wedding. LMAO
Nowadays, I don't drink beer. In fact, I'll have 2 drinks when I go out. That's it. I'm not gonna ever get like that again. I promise. LOL
What about you? What is your beverage of choice? Do you have a drunken memory? If you don't drink or never have taken a drink...why?
