    We just got home from meeting friends, and having a few drinks with them. And I got drunk!

    I rarely got drunk. And I only had 2 drinks. The second I didn't even finish .How did THAT happen?

    Well, I dunno, But my husband remarked that my speech was slurred. That was all I needed. When we left, I simply handed him the car keys. He drove home.

    I will never drive impaired. Even a little. That's an absolute. I hope you do likewise.

    I wish I WERE a rebel.

    A nonconformist at times, perhaps. But not a rebel. Maybe some day I will learn how to be a genuine rebel.

    I've never gotten drunk... even through High School.

    Well on the 4th of July I had a get-together with some friends and we bought fireball whiskey (it tastes like cinnamon and the candy "fireball). Well, I decided to have a shot, then one more. I started getting a bit tipsy and it was getting difficult for me to walk.

    My friend walked over and said "Okay, you're not driving home so you can crash on the couch tonight" and took my keys. I told him thank you and I wasn't planning on driving anyway.

    I woke up without pants and a German Shepard laying on me. I don't know what happened :O

    What a bunch of light weights!
    Though I find it funny how my tolerance can vary tremendously depending on what I'm drinking, whether Ive eaten recently and if I'm hydrated or not.
    That being said, I've never woken up wondering where my pants are after two shots.

    But thankfully you did not crash. Drunk driving is seriously bad. Seriously awful.

    That's why I just handed the car keys to my husband, without saying a word. He knew. Nor did he have to ask. As soon as he told me my speech was slurred there was no question. I didn't FEEL drunk (and I don't think I was terribly), but then you often don't. I simply won't drive if there's a chance I'm impaired.

    And frankly, when I went to walk I did feel a bit unsteady. Why I have no idea, I didn't drink that much. But today it hit me. I've had a lot more and wasn't affected. But then we've both got colds right now, so maybe that's a factor, I dunno.

    But whatever it was, when I feel the effects of alcohol, I won't drive. Period. And he rarely drinks, maybe a single cocktail, so I know he can always drive. Why take chances like that? You don't get to be our ages by being stupid about these things. icon_wink.gif

    Tolerance is built up through consuming alcohol relatively frequently in moderately increasing doses and by drinking after food and of course not trying to drink fast. That's enough of the biology class instead I'll tell you of My funniest night involved getting drunk in public.

    It was on the October long weekend in Sydney 2011 which always coincides with the National Rugby League Grand Final(Australia's version of a Super Bowl sports event) at a bar with a mixed gay str8 crowd. After drinking for 3 hours before during & with only eating light snacks I took my too friends to a nearby Gay bar. On approach I realised how drunk I thought I wouldn't get in but managed to slip by the bouncers only to have to go onto the roof top where the smokers go & stayed there for close to 40 mins.

    My two friends left the bar and the rest was a blur. The next thing I remember is walking down a nearby street & someone talking to me that I didn't remember meeting which made me turn and look beside me.

    From initially thinking what the f***have I got into now I looked at him and just thought WOW. How did I pick this gorgeous guy and how does he know all this stuff I am into ( no idea what I said but it worked lol) and I then went to his place, we slept then had the hottest sex 3 times then spent the day together. I kept it too myself to this day that I was to drunk to remember how I met him at the bar despite the fact that we dated after that for a month until he went home to Queensland. I'm not going to pretend that similar hasn't happened before as it has in all sorts of places including the USA, New Zealand and the UK. I don't drink very often since 2009 due to having an alcoholic ex-partner but I know that I as do others have experienced of getting drunk when you haven't had alcohol in a long while with some very hilarious results

    I've been nursing a cold for a few days. Rare for me to get them ever. Today I slept until 1 PM icon_exclaim.gif , something I haven't done the entire 7 years I've lived here. My husband was shocked, and finally woke me (I think as much to assure himself I wasn't dead). So whatever I have (and I don't really feel very sick, or I wouldn't have left the house in the first place) is affecting me more than I realized. Which may have been a factor in my strange reaction at the bar yesterday.

    As for drinking speed, I'm notorious for making a single drink last for an hour. Bartenders hate me. And I drink often enough I don't think that my system being unused to alcohol was an issue, either. The only one on your list was not eating, but that happens frequently and had never bothered me. And I always drink a large glass of water at the bar with my drink.

    No, on balance I think it was the effects of my cold. And now my poor husband has it, too. I feel so guilty. icon_cry.gif

    2) Not that I will make a point of this going forward (though I admit I have in the past, and I can't change the past), but this, coupled with your "Shopping while drunk" topic and some others over the years do tend to support the narrative that you do like to indulge in the alcohol. Just pointing it out to clarify that these not so infrequent posts involving you and alcohol are noticed by some.

    "Shopping while drunk" was me having fun with myself, as well you know (and I think I actually used the word tipsy). I'm not afraid to make jokes about myself. It was YOU who turned it into a big scandal.

    My point at the time was that I hate holiday shopping, contrary to the gay cliché. And I really do have a martini first, to put me in the mood, before facing Neiman Marcus or any other stores. It's simply how I was raised.

    In the old days I had my martini at a table, perhaps with a light lunch, while models walked around featuring the latest fashions. That I could mark for later consideration when I visited the men's department.

    Those days are mostly gone now, and I hope you don't think I'm hitting the gin bottle before I go to buy my cheap undies at Target. (I refuse to buy expensive designer labels for my underwear, but I'll pay anything for my formal outerwear)

    Your problem, my dear, is that you answer parody with punishment. When you get past that we may have something to discuss.

    Seems to me you were being pretty truthful and honest in that shopping while tipsy topic that you posted. However, we'll let others read the topic and decide for themselves.

    For the record, I do miss the good service one would receive at department stores. A time long past unfortunately...

    I hope I am truthful about myself, warts & all. To let people laugh along with me at my human shortcomings & failings, my many comical misadventures. A lot more self-critical than many people are about themselves.

    And when this next Christmas season arrives, I will have a lovely gin martini at the Capital Grill as usual, and get tipsy once again. You know I only go there about twice a year? And then launch myself out into the mall, to face the horror of holiday shopping, but with a smile on my face. icon_biggrin.gif

    And actually I'm very effective. I will have researched everything beforehand, as detailed as a military operation, and I'll blitz the mall in record time.

    Actually an RJer here witnessed me do that last Christmas: Sharkspeare, or whatever he calls himself these days. We first had lunch at Neiman Marcus, I think I just had a glass of wine, and then we both left my husband for the mall. He couldn't come along because I was shopping for him.

    I knew exactly where I wanted to go, exactly what I wanted to get. And I did.

    So this is my successful pattern, and it works very well. And yes, we'll let others decide for themselves, about my approach to these things.

    As for missing the grand department stores of the past, or even the speciality ones, like Mark Cross where I got all my leather accessories, or Abercrombie & Fitch for my outdoor gear, before they degenerated into a twink outlet, I must accept that era has past.

    That's a time of elegance & class that will never return in my lifetime. Oh, the high prices are still there, and the exclusivity, but not the true elegance I once knew.

    Whether that's good or bad I can't say. Perhaps more egalitarian, but what's missing is the human touch we once had. The days of my Father sipping a brandy in an armchair, while he watched me being fitted for my prep school attire by his tailor, are long gone.

    And I no longer have the money to make that ever happen again, anyway, even if it were possible in today's world. Perhaps for the mega-rich, but not for me. So it's a world of the past, while I'm stranded here in today's world of malls and big-box stores. Ugly & graceless. Most of the time I just close my eyes and block it out, and try to remember better days.

    Good to see you guys being cordial to each othericon_biggrin.gif It really makes me feel good. I can tell you're both trying and I respect you both for that.
    We're all human beings and divergent viewpoints aside, respect or at least tolerance makes for a much more pleasant experience here.

    Sincerely wishing peace in both your lives

    I really hate being intoxicated so I'm usually careful to avoid it but man did it ever happen last night at a wine party. We're supposed to sample from all the open bottles everyone brought, which can make keeping track of your total a challenge. Three full drinks of any kind is my limit but over five hours I think I had much more than that. I also hadn't eaten anything at all yesterday and arrived after the substantial buffet was completely devoured.

    It was a huge bash and I was one of about a dozen guys who crashed all over the large house. The nice part about that was waking up naked with one of my long time crushes, a truly beautiful and sexy boy. He and I had flirted for years at these events. The bad part was hurting so bad that all we did was stroke and cuddle...still very nice.

    I was supposed to hike the dunes on this beautiful day but the festivities triggered a fibromyalgia flare up and I hurt so bad I popped vicodins in bed all day instead....yikes.
