I’ve played drinking games . . . but not for a looooong time. I learned my lesson pretty early on that playinga game to drink as much as you can to get drunk as fast as possible is justsilly . . . and painful the next day.
The last time a participated in a drinking game I’m sure Igot alcohol poisoning because I was brutally sick for literally three days . . . Ithought I would die. That was a goodlylong time ago.
The game we were playing was based on the board gameScattergories. For the uninitiated theobjective is to score points by uniquely naming objects within a set ofcategories, given an initial letter, within a time limit. Actually, it hadnothing to do with the actually game but we used the game cube in our little diversion. It was at a New Year’s Eve party with familyand close friends.
In our version of the game, you rolled the multifaceted dicewhich has different letters on each face. Whoever rolled the cube got to call the alcoholthat everyone else had to do a shot of that started with the letter that cameup on top. If you couldn’t think of oneor if the booze wasn’t available then no one drank. That’s it . . . stupid but effective.
As we all know drinking alcohol diminishes judgment anddecreases inhibition. Yeah, I lostboth. I ended up running around the allover the place flashing people and being exceptionally obnoxious. And if you know me . . . I can be fairlyannoying with very little effort. So,everyone got to see my ta-tas and annoyed all at the same time.
The only thing that gives me any comfort is that everyoneelse at that party was also pretty drunk . . . at least, I think they were. And, if they weren’t I don’t want to know.
The moral . . . drink responsibly and don’t be stupid.
