One of my close friends left for the army a couple of weeks ago. Before he went to serve the country we invited him out for drinks and dinner as a little farewell.
We went to TGI Fridays (on Friday hehe) for some yummy steak and ribs. Delicious! Here I offered everyone with my chocolate cake which we didn’t manage to finish. The cake was too big and we were pretty much full from the dinner…
We also gave him a little gift to wish him good luck. It was a dog tag necklace with a little message from our favourite game to remind him of all of us.
Afterwards we went for drinks as Las Iguanas which was packed! They need more seats! However I did manage to bag a sofa with table after half an our of standing and a bottle of sangria. When we sat down, this was when the Tequila shots emerged and it was alright to down them and I didn’t feel dizzy at all. It was only when we got up to leave (he had a train to catch home and I had the anime expo the next day) I felt my stomach burn and make noises. Yup, I had to run for the loo and throw-up. Nice. I thought I held it in well and managed to run to logos and queue up for the disabled toilet for my turn (the normal loos were closed). I’m such a lightweight!
All my friends seem to be leaving the country or further away from me. I just found out my housemate is going to China.
Who else is a lightweight? How do you handle your drinks? Any tips for me on how to prepare myself for another drinking session?
