The Five Stages Of Drunkenness:
Stage 1 - SMART
This is when you suddenly become an expert on every subject in the known
Universe. You know you know everything and want to pass on your
knowledge to anyone who will listen. At this stage you are always RIGHT.
And of course the person you are talking to is very WRONG. This makes
for an interesting argument when both parties are SMART.
Stage 2 - GOOD LOOKING
This is when you realize that you are the BEST LOOKING person in the
entire bar and that people want you. You can go up to a perfect stranger
knowing they want you and really want to talk to you. Bear in mind that
you are still SMART, so you can talk to this person about any subject
under the sun.
Stage 3 - RICH
This is when you suddenly become the richest person in the world. You
can buy drinks for the entire bar because you have an armored truck full
of money parked behind the bar. You can also make bets at this stage,
because of course, you are still SMART, so naturally you will win all
your bets.It doesn't matter how much you bet because you are RICH. You
will also buy drinks for everyone that you fancy, because now you are
the BEST LOOKING person in the world.
Stage 4 - BULLET PROOF
You are now ready to pick fights with anyone and everyone especially
those with whom you have been betting or arguing. This is because
nothing can hurt you. At this point you can also go up to the partners
of the people who you fancy and challenge them to a battle of wits or
money. You have no fear of losing this battle because you are SMART, you
are RICH and hell, you're BETTER LOOKING than they are anyway!
Stage 5 - INVISIBLE
This is the Final Stage of Drunkenness. At this point you can do
anything because NO ONE CAN SEE YOU. You dance on a table to impress the
people who you fancy because the rest of the people in the room cannot
see you. You are also invisible to the person who wants to fight you.
You can walk through the street singing at the top of your lungs because
no one can see or hear you and because you're still SMART you know all
The Five Stages Of Drunkenness:
It's 11:00 on a weeknight, you've had a few beers.You get up to leave because you have work the next day and one of your friends buys another round. (One of your unimployed friends.) Here at level one you think to yourself, "Oh come on, this is silly, why as long as I get seven hours of sleep (snap fingers), I'm cool.".
It's midnight. You've had a few more beers. You've just spent 20 minutes arguing against artificial turf. You get up to leave again, but at level two, a little devil appears on your shoulder. And now you're thinking, "Hey! I'm out with my friends! What am I working for anyway? These are the good times! Besides, as long as I get five hours sleep (snaps fingers) I'm cool.".
One in the morning. You've abandoned beer for tequila. You've just spent 20 minutes arguing for artificial turf. And now you're thinking, "Our waitress is the most beautiful woman I've ever seen!" At level three, you love the world. On the way to the bathroom you buy a drink for the stranger at the end of the bar just because you like his face. You get drinking fantasies.
(like,"Hey fellas, if we bought our own bar, we could live together forever. We could do it. Tommy, you could cook.") But at level three, that devil is a little bit bigger....and he's buying. And you're thinking "Oh, come on, come on now. As long as I get three hours sleep...and a complete change of blood (snaps fingers), I'm cool.".
Two in the morning. And the devil is bartending. For last call, you ordered a bottle of rum and a Coke. You are artificial turf! This time on your way to the bathroom, you punch the stranger at the end of the bar. Just because you don't like his face! And now you're thinking, "Our busboy is the best looking man I've ever seen." You and your friends decide to leave, right after you get thrown out, and one of you knows an ...after hours bar. And here, at level four, you actually think to yourself, "Well....as long as I'm only going to get a few hours sleep anyway, I may as well....STAY UP ALL NIGHT!!!! Yeah! That'd be good for me. I don't mind going to that board meeting looking like Keith Richards. Yeah, I'll turn that around, make it work for me. And besides, as long as I get 31 hours sleep tomorrow ...................cool.
Five in the morning. after unsuccessfully trying to get your money back at the tattoo parlor ("But I don't even know anybody named Ruby!!!"), you and your friends wind up across the state line in a bar with guys who have been in prison as recently as...that morning. It's the kind of place where even the devil is going, "Uh, I gotta turn in. I gotta be in Hell- at nine. I've got that brunch with Hitler, I can't miss that." At this point, you're all drinking some kind of thick blue liquor, like something from a Klingon wedding. A waitress with fresh stitches comes over, and you think to yourself, "Someday I'm gonna marry that girl!!" One of your friends stands up and screams, "WE'RE
DRIVIN' TO FLORIDA!!!!!"- and passes out. You crawl outside for air, and then you hit the worst part of level five- the sun. You weren't expecting that were you? You never do. You walk out of a bar in daylight, and you see people on their way to work, or jogging. And they look at you-and they know. And they say..."Who's Ruby?" Let's be honest, if you're 19 and you stay up all night, it's like a victory like you've beat the night, but if you're over 30, then that sun is like God's flashlight. We all say the same prayer then, "I swear, I will never do this
again (how long?) as long as I live!" And some of us have that little addition, "and this time, I mean it!"
