Hungover Reprise

By Pauly
Melbourne, Australia

I woke up drunk and somewhere in the middle of my morning shower, the hangover hit me like a ton of bricks. I nearly puked in the shower, but I managed to hold my mud.

I tried to retrace my steps from the night before. I drank three Stellas at a local's pub (where all the casino dealers hang out).Then we headed to the Las Vegas bar in the casino and things got blurry. We started doing shots of B-52s and Nicky and Kirstie wanted to go to karaoke. I know that I was drinking with Heath and Brendan until almost 3:00am when a fan of my poker blog wandered up to introduce himself. At that point, I lost all semblance of consciousness.

I shuffled off downstairs to the food court with Nicky and almost threw up when I ate a breakfast sandwich. I had to do color commentary for the final table of the Aussie Millions. I went upstairs and Schecky told me that I looked like shit. My stomach was churning and I had to do something about it. Time to pull the trigger.

I snuck off to the bathroom and did the deed. Boy, I felt 10000000% better. I gargled some mouthwash, drank some fizzy water, and grabbed a slice of pizza since I puked up my breakfast.

Now, I feel a lot better and can actually work without worrying about spewing bile onto my keyboard.
