That was dumb!
So the other night, Connie & I went to visit her friend, Cindy. We had wine & brie, and laughed and generally had a good time.
I knew I was drinking more than typical for me, since I only do one drink, when I DO have a a drink, and I'm thinking during the course of the evening, it was more like four.
The next day, I had a headache that wouldn't go away, and I felt queasy.
I felt yucky all morning, and it wasn't until after I took a 2-hour nap that I felt okay again.
While it doesn't seem like it was bad enough to call it a "hangover" - it was certainly bad enough that in the future, I'll stop whoever wants to refill my glass after the first drink!
I can only recall one other time that I ever drank more than I should have, and that was in my early 20's, when we had company from Germany - the summer before I met Lee. That ended with the room spinning & me crawling to the bathroom. The next day I felt fine, though - I had gotten rid of all the alcohol.
I guess I kind of expected the same thing or something - that I wouldn't have been able to go to sleep if I'd had more than my body could handle.
Ah well, lesson learned!
