Eat a Banana, Drink Gatorade, Take 3 advils

A remedy to save your life!

I barely made it to work today! WOA!

I think I drank too much Blue Moon last night since I could barely stand up today without being incredibly weak and sick! That was prettyyyy shitty I must say.

We had fun though! It was definitely great to let loose and chill out from such a shitty week at work! I text my boss (who was supposed to come out for drinks with us last night but didn't) and told him I would be late. An hour later after I made it from my bed to the couch and that was as far as I could go, I text him again and tell him I'll be in around noon and I was taking a half day.

His response: "you baby"

lol because we have that type of relationship hahah.

After throwing up my piece of bread I had and slept for another 2 hours, I felt a bit better. A friend of mine text me and told me to help my hangover, do this: "eat a banana, drink gatorade, take 3 advils" I really thought that wouldn't work. I WAS SO WRONG!

I ate the banana, slowly, because that texture is just not a favorite thing after being sick. I had no gatorade, but almost instantly I was able to stand up without needing to sit back down 2 second later! I was shocked. I finally got my sorry ass to work and everyone knew the deal, which didn't help because they just fucked with me after that.

I didnt even drink that much, I had 4 beers, but I didnt eat anything so that sure did not help.
So here I am, still at work at 6:30 on a Friday, finishing all the crap I should have done this morning. But that's okay, my girl is here too so we're just chillin.

I can say that I will NOT drink that much at happy hour again!
Hopefully this weekend won't be a complete washout; it's supposed to rain a lot. Blah --rainy weekends suck.

PS: I just read this post about the game MASH and its hilarious and they have an iphone app for that! Hilarious! Read Children of the 90's blog!

Have a happy weekend :)

Ah thank you for the shout out, you're the best :) And I know the feeling well, I work Sunday mornings and it usually involves dragging my sorry hungover ass around while I try not to vom. Feel better!

i'm going out of town for a gig today. wee~!

p/s; another tip to ease the hangover is to drink a glass of coconut juice. :)

Oh, Blue Moon : )

It's cool that you have that kind of relationship with your boss. In the future, particularly if you're feeling it more than you should and suspect you'll feel pretty crappy in the morning, take advil or tylenol right before you go to bed with a big glass of water. When you wake up, if possible, have a big breakfast. It sounds counterproductive, but it works like a charm for me.

Hope you're enjoying your Friday now : )

The Wife in Stilettos said...

LOL, you are just like me with drinking. I drink 2 glasses of wine and I am done. DONE. Finito. It's crap. But I'm so loving this sharing of the hangover fixer. A banana? I would have never thought!

The Novelista Barista said...

LOL thanks! i am better!!!! i def didnt drink anything last night so i can be prepared for the pole dancing ass kicking im gettin today!

By best guesses on the remedy:

The Gatorade helps replenish lost electrolytes and fluids. The banana helps get sugars back into your system and something mild into your gut. The Advil helps reduce swelling--3 might be overkill though. Be careful not to go past the recommended dose.

All in all, the combination == WIN. Replenishing lost fluids and salts is very important considering you've probably pissed/puked out most of your fluids.

Lmao! Just just like Me, If i drink on an empty stomach a couple of drinks will get me really drunk and hungover the next day.

Never tried the banana remedy.. but Gatorade does work! I hate the taste of Gatorade but it's the only thing that keeps me from being completely sick when i'm hungover.

Whatever you do... Don't drink water the next day. usually brings the alcohol back up.. and makes u more sick. So stick to Gatorade.

And if your stomach isn't too weak try eating something greasy. lol. [friend said it works for her]

I woke up with a little hangover today as well.. My co-workers always know without me telling them because i walk in with a bottle of Getorade. :P

oh and if you know of any vietnamese restaurants around Try the Chicken pho.

Pho is oOoh SoOo GoOd and cures my hangover every time :) [no clue why it just does lol]

Shania said...

Stephanie said...
