Incoherent when Intoxicated

This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. Each post will be associated with a letter of the alphabet with the theme ‘Letters to my younger self’.


Dear 21-year-old me,

Let me get straight to the point: Do Not Drink.

No, not forever, silly. I mean tonight, do not drink tonight.

It’s Valentine’s Day today, and against your better judgment, you’ll succumb to Aaron’s persistence and go out with him. As friends, you’ll remind him, just as friends (Yeah, right). After a light dinner of cheese and beef carpaccio, he will order wine, red for you and white for him. It will be the first time you have wine and let me warn you now, the night will not turn out pretty.

You’ll order a second glass of wine and that’s when you’ll find out what you’ll be like intoxicated. As the alcohol roams through your body, you’ll begin to chatter: about how Calculus is kicking your behind, that the wine tastes so very fruity, almost like grapes, that you think the both of you should remain friends because being best friends is the best thing ever and the coup de grace, you’ll lean towards him and whisper in his ear “Loose lips sink ships” and you’ll giggle all the way home, uttering random nothings.

You, my dear, will be a chatty drunk. What did I tell you? Not so pretty.

So, do not drink tonight and the loose lips sink ships remark will not haunt you for the rest of your life 🙂

    • True, chatty drunks are probably quite fun to observers LOL The only problem is that the chatty drunk might not be able to remember the conversation the next day which is a bummer for chatty drunk


  1. Visiting on the 10th day of the #atozchallenge. Learning interesting new things on this blog hop day. Congratulations on a well presented blog/theme. If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening and related topics this month. Come and visit.


  2. I read your title and thought, “Oh damn, they’re talking about me!” LOL Most of us have had our turn being ‘Incoherent while Intoxicated’, and the hangovers that follow should teach us a lesson. I guess. 🙂 Fun post!
