Is there anything in the world more overrated than alcohol? As I sit on the train en route to work, I wonder why I bother giving it the time of day. I guess it is inevitable to consume in a social setting, but why is it so appealing?
I slept in today, wasting the first few hours that I like to use to be productive each morning. And the hours I am awake I will no doubt feel like crap as my body suffers the after-effects of the poison.
And I can’t even use music as a distraction as I don’t know where my earphones are. Another blow is that my iPhone is charging at a slower and slower pace, to the point that an overnight charge gives it around 30% battery life. This is a repercussion of dropping it in water at a party a few months back. Yep, alcohol at it again.
And the crazy thing is, alcohol is something we pay for!
‘Excuse me bartender, I was wondering if you could take my earphones and drop my phone into water and then make me get an expensive taxi home and I’ll give you lots of money to do so. Oh, and a water thanks.’
At least then I would avoid the hangover.
