You Boozehound! Now What?

You Boozehound! Now What?

So, yesterday was one of those days when you needed to bust up the squeaky clean routine. ¬†You needed to pretend there wasn’t a concept of tomorrow, to put your nine-to-five up on the shelf and enjoy yourself! Michael Jackson was with you the whole way. Bet you’re feeling pretty lousy, huh? Eyes are heavy and darting, heart is racing once you sit up, but your abs look great? Trust me, you’ll inflate once you eat again! You want something potato-based and covered in some lard-like syrup asap. Am I right? Well, there is a way that you can lessen that feeling (of course learning from your mistake of surpassing your fifth drink is the best one, but nobody...
