I’ve done a lot of stupid things while drinking. I’ve had the pleasure of watching other people do stupid things while they’re drinking. All that stuff listed in red I have personally done. At no point did any of those activities come to a good end.
If you’re out and about drinking with friends having a system helps. In any crew, there should be at least one lawyer and one medical professional present at all times. This can prevent many problems. Now, it’s highly unlikely you’re going to have those two professions represented on every night out.
I have a solution for that, too.
Friend a Mormon.
Mormons can’t drink. They can’t drink alcohol and they shouldn’t be drinking caffeine, either. A Mormon on your team will ensure one of you will be sober and act as a sheepdog to herd your stupid.
You’re probably thinking, Andy, a Mormon isn’t going to go out with me and my friends. If they do, then they will bring the party down.
I have two things to say to that:
- Inform the Mormon in question they will get 15 minutes to preach to your team at the beginning of the night and at the end. I think Jesus would take that deal.
- If you’re drinking hard enough, that Mormon isn’t going to weigh you down.
