Hail To The Chief

The GM1 has a buddy named Jake. Jake has a distinct preference for dining at Chili's. Jake likes Chili's because Chili's makes a particular drink, a mega-margarita called El Presidente. Jake makes it a point to have several El Presidentes whenever we dine at Chili's.

Did I mention Jake is such a lightweight when it comes to drinking?

After the first, Jake begins to smile wider and talk slower. After the second, Jake's eyes droop and he sits rather crookedly. Following the third, Jake is upright by virtue of being propped in the corner of the booth. After drink number four, while Jake alternates between mutters and shouts of "El PresiDENT-ay!", Jake will begin to slide under the table, at which point we take Jake home.

Then we take terrible pictures of him, sprawled in a happy drunken state, where he will lie until morning when the cat will awaken him by sitting on his face.

So, anybody know any good hangover remedies?

(thanks to Ted for awakening a memory)

Apart from having a cat sit on your face, you mean?

That comes under the "cure or kill" category.

Show him that picture. Perfect cure.

When I'm really hungover (and I suspect Jake will be beyond really hungover, and into just-let-me-die-in-the-name-of-all-that-is-holy) there are only two things I can keep down:

1. Menudo (Mexican tripe stew). Menudo cures everything, especially hangovers.
2. I won't tell you, because it's absolutely normal and doesn't gross people out the way menudo does.

I get hungover just thinking about Menudo... be it tripe stew or boy band.
