I’m so lucky I’m an “adorable” drunk. Couldn’t be still on this if it was not so. But there was a point in my life when my drinking got bad enough that I became “that guy” at parties and events. Black-out making an ass of myself all the time. Close friends even ended up having a low key intervention about it, but that wasn’t what made me start being more responsible about my consumption. No, that happened a while later on a night that me and good buddy, Paolo, wracked up a $200+ bill getting wasted at Duffs Wings, and then headed to legendary Toronto dive bar, Ted’s Collision, to drink more. I was so wasted that I, apparently, wandered behind the bar. I either thought it was the bathroom or I was attempting to grab myself a drink. Accounts are spotty. The result was getting ejected from the bar, and Paolo let me wander away on my own. Thanks friend! The rest of the night is a mystery. All I know is that I came to the next morning, in one of the buildings on U of T campus, with a faint memory of wandering into a classroom and asking for the whereabouts of someone who had not attended the university in years. I was promptly asked to leave the classroom. My ass was covered in bruises. Hopefully just from falling down a lot, but I will never know. After that night, and the hangover that followed, I decided my friends were right, and it was time to cut down. We humans sure do enjoy learning the hard way.
