“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.”
Attributed to Frank Sinatra.
On the other hand, lately, I’ve been feeling the complete opposite.
I feel sorry for people who do drink, knowing how bad they will feel the next morning.
One of the problems I’ve been hitting lately, is, as I’ve gotten older, recovering from just about anything takes longer. Being sick, physical activity, drinking too much…
Where when I was young, a little sleep and a lot of water would cure a slightly excessive night of drinking. As I’ve grown older, it takes longer and longer to recover back to normal.
It seems like people either choose to skip normal, and keep drinking, or choose to skip imbibing.
If I want to continue to get back to being a base-line normal human being, somewhere there has to be a point of diminishing return, and I do like feeling alert and “normal”.
