Is it possible to be hungover without having actually imbibed any alcohol?
It clearly must be, because I have a pounding headache, aching body, nausea, miserable liver, and yet I had no alcohol yesterday or today. Whatsoever. This makes no bloody sense.
Other people at least get to have some fun before they have the consequences. Hmm. Maybe I caught someone's hangover. Maybe some evil bastard drank like the devil and passed his hangover on to me. Like a cold.
The last time I drank even a smidgin of alcohol happened to coincide with my deciding to eat sausages that had been in my freezer for over a year. Don't ask. It seemed like a good idea at the time, when I was starving. I threw up for a day and a half, and now my measly brain associates that terribleness with alcohol, when in fact I hadn't drunk enough to make a monkey feel funky. So I cannot really tolerate alcohol at the moment anyway.
I don't quite understand what I am being punished for right now, but it has something to do with the fact that we lost the cricket to England. I spent the whole of yesterday in Leeds in somewhat icy conditions watching us lose, and now I am hungover. My scientific brain sees the glaring rule of cause and effect right there. The English crowd were, well, pissed; are English crowds at sporting events not pissed by definition? Maybe I am hungover off of their fumes.
Going to go curl up in a ball now and moan softly.
