Mid-Day Beer Fest

I just went out to lunch with my work people to celebrate a birthday. We usually kick back and have a good time with a beer but today we just couldn’t seem to stop at just one. You see, it was $5 pitcher day. And since the restaurant was all out of Miller Light, we were given any other draft beer at the $5 price. It only made good sense to get 2 pitchers of Blue Moon and 2 pitchers of Leinie’s Oktoberfest. We split 4 pitchers between 5 people. And since I had so much to drink, I’m leaving it up to you to calculate how many beers I had at lunch today. I feel like I’m slurring my words as I type this. Now I have to make it through 2 more hours of work and a trip to the gym. I know I’ll make it through but it all seems so hard right now. I just want to curl up in the corner and take a nap.

I will endure. I need to remember to drink a lot of water so I don’t get a late afternoon hangover. I can handle being a little tipsy at work but being hung over at work is really not a good time.

Wanna know the best part of the story? The boss bought all the beer.

YAY. Did you go back to work after the fact? We can get fired for working under the influence...which I always said was a good excuse to take the rest of the day off!

Wow, and why don't you like this job? ;-)

I hope you made it through the rest of your afternoon and then home safely. I bet you'll sleep well tonight, that is if you're not curled up under your desk right now. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

That sounds like a fantastic lunch! Blue Moon and Leinies!!

Mid-afternoon hangovers are the worst, especially if you can't nap. Boooo. You should just store a bottle of tequila in your desk for days like this so you can keep the buzz going.

How awesome that your boss got you all drunk! I think the world would be a happier place if we could all drink at work. Hope you survived the afternoon.

Awesome! I love days like that. And yes, it would have been ridiculous NOT to take advantage of that $5 special with any beer you wanted!

It has been a long, long, long time since I've drank my lunch.

I remember 'hiding' in one of the unused storage rooms with a couple plastered buddies waiting for the day to end (our employee pass badges clocked us in and out of the building so we had to be 'in').
