You know those thoughts you have when you're hungover? Classic ones like: "How did I end up drinking so much last night?" "I hope I didn't text her" "Fuck, where's my wallet" "where'd we park the car" and "mmmm sandwiches." Granted most of the hungover thoughts and conversations are complete nonsense--a mix of moaning noises and incoherent words. I must admit though, some of the most entertaining conversations I've ever had have been when my friends and I are gathered around the tv watching sports during the morning after. One time we even came up with the cure. Let's set the scene:
Last Sunday I was completely mashed after a night of too much whiskey and lager. I thought to myself, "what could this have happens, what could have, what could I have done to prevent this?" 1. I could have stayed sober?
2. Had 5 less drinks?
-A good idea in theory, but when you're unemployed and someone is buying you shots, you can't say no: fact.
My thoughts didn't get too far before it hit me square in my aching face. I guess my mind was subconsciously reminiscing about hospital beds when the thought of a bedside intravenous device struck me. Brilliant!
The Cure - It's so simple... you become hungover because your body is so dehydrated from the alcohol that it dries up your organs like sandpaper. That's why they suggest drinking water before you go to bed. I'm one step ahead of them though: Drink water while you're sleeping!
If I could arrange a bedside IV system, then I could just hook up to that thing before I pass out and it could hydrate my body while I sleep and I'll awake feeling 110 percent. I'd crush up a few ibuprofen and sprinkle the medicine in there to take care of the headache as well.
Now I understand that the whole administering a needle while you're wasted thing is dangerous, but if you mark the vein when you're sober then it cant be that hard to hit the target.
Is this the cure we've all been looking for?
