Drunk Behaviour...

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk.  That will teach you to keep your mouth shut..

On Saturday night Arvid and I were at Buddy Guys Legends Blues Club, a favorite spot of ours.  We have many.  Like everyone else we go there to enjoy the music and have a good time.  This night was no exception.

my pepsi

I have nothing against people that have a few drinks so they can get in the "mood" and mellow out.  Arvid does it and so do many I know.  What I hate is when people drink like as if there is no tomorrow and just get themselves blasted and start acting all "crazy".

Usually at the clubs here in Chicago people go to enjoy the music just like we do and not to get completely out of control with alcohol.  On this occasion there were 2 young couples who seemed to not know the difference between mellowing out and making a complete fool of themselves.  To me this behaviour is disgusting and I hate it.  I would have tried to ignore it had they not decided to start pulling our table towards them and spilling everything in the process.

I am not immune to people drinking and having a good time.  I love having a good time, I just don't need to have alcohol to do so.  Normally I have one drink and that is enough to last me the entire evening, and if it does not I really can't handle more.  There has been probably 4 times in my life I have had more than usual to drink and those times were enough to make me realize never again do I want to make a fool of myself.  One reason I don't drink myself into a stupor is that I want to know when I am having a good time. 

I hate it when we are out with company and they make a fool of themselves, they start acting stupid, loud and obnoxious.  I especially dislike it when women drink and get totally drunk.  Arvid said I have ZERO tolerance in this and he is right.  I mean why do you have to get drunk to have a good time?? 

arvid is the only person I know that can take
an hour to finish one beer.
 A rule I have set for Arvid and I is that as soon as the person we are with starts to "act up" we are out of there.  This being said, everyone is entitled to do what they please and when they please.  I am also entitled to not wanting to be around you when you make a fool of yourself!!  The first thing in the human personality that dissolves in alcohol is dignity.  What's so great about a hangover??

Everything in moderation, that's my motto.  Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide and cheers to all. Arvid enjoys a beer, a drink just like so many.  Never though during the weekdays.  Only on weekends and he drinks not to get drunk like a skunk but for enjoyment.  We can be at a restaurant/pub for hours and he would still be on drink number two.  Never understood people's need to drink so fast so as to be ditsy in less than an hour.  SAD!   Have a great day and don't make a fool of yourself!

When the wine goes in, strange things come out...

until next time
