So Useless Yet So Busybody

28 Oct

As today is a public holiday (yet again, I know), we went out for dinner and drinks last night. But I was so useless with my alcohol intake. How come?

Last week, I was in Langkawi with my high school girlfriends and I was drinking gin and whiskey far more than my usual intake. The next day at dinner, it was champagne, wine and whiskey, mixing drinks all the way. And I was fine, no hangover at all.

By the third night, I had beer, more gin and potent cocktails, yet I was fine. But last night, after two Carlsberg and a mojito, I was woozy. So fast, so useless…

Our regular haunt was rather quiet and the table behind us was talking rather loudly about life, guys and relationships, it perked our attention. We decided to stayed on after our meal…

Truth be told, it wasn’t that we were eavesdropping, she was loud and her constant use of the word ‘like’ caught our attention more than anything else. So the one-sided chatter had both of us cracking up each time ‘like’ was used. But we also learnt that she went to Minnesota for her studies.

Ordering more drinks than what was originally planned, I had a Sex on the Beach cocktail next. We simply had to stay on because of the entertainment behind us and it felt good to laugh so much.

But even without her mentioning Minnesota, we could tell that she was American-educated because every other sentence she uttered had the word ‘like’ in there.

At one point, we were trying to structure out her sentences without that word, it didn’t work nor made any sense. Hubby even tried replacing the word with the ‘like’ symbol using just his hand. Lol… quite a riot and such busybodies we were.

By the time that last cocktail of mine was finished, I was almost finished too, feeling so woozy and being fueled by all that laughter. Hahahaha…
