Going on an alcohol binge can be a dangerous game. You could hurt yourself or somebody around you if you get too reckless. And let’s not even begin to mention the dreadful hangovers the day after. But sometimes, some truly great moments can come from the questionable choices we make when we’re drunk. Think of all the friends you’ve made on nights out, the fun memories of singing drunk at karaoke and the beautiful way you can lose your inhibitions.
Who knows, you could even end up doing something truly wonderful without having any memory or recollection of what that thing actually was.
I’m going to tell you a small tale that I hope you will all enjoy. We set the scene with a man waking up with a splitting headache and only a vague recollection of things that happened the night before.
Jack, a married man, woke up with the worst hangover of his life after a heavy night out with his friends. He still has no idea how he managed to get home from the party!
“Oh, damn,” he thought to himself, praying he hadn’t done anything foolish the night before.
Jack walked to the bathroom to get some aspirin and a glass of water, he looked in the mirror and noticed he had a very sore and very large black eye.
He walked back into his bedroom and noticed his clothes neatly folded and pressed next to the bed.
Jack then noticed a note left on his bedside table and his heart sank. With a feeling of dread, Jack opened the letter which was written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife’s lipstick.
“Dear husband, last night you came home drunk and made a huge racket. But don’t worry! Breakfast is on the stove. I left early to get groceries to make your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian”
He stumbled downstairs to the kitchen to find a hot breakfast, freshly brewed coffee and the morning paper waiting for him. His son, sitting at the table, looks up at his dad then carries on eating.
“Son… What happened last night?”
He replied “Well, you came home after three in the morning, drunk and out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you threw up in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”
At this point, Jack had become more baffled than ever before; “So, why is your mother in such a good mood? And why is there breakfast on the table waiting for me?”
To which his son replied, “Oh that! Well, when mom dragged you to the bedroom and tried to take your pants off, you screamed ‘Leave me alone, I’m married! I’m married!”
Jack, as you can imagine, was so unbelievably relieved that he started crying!
Sure, we all mistakes, but sometimes you forgive your nearest and dearest when you know their loyalty is to you.
