Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Wednesday, March 26, 2021

I ran into a lawyer recently, and we somehow got around to talking about drinking and hangovers. He told me about his strategy for carefree imbibing while never having to worry about the after-effects:

He’s sold on this hangover-prevention pill called Cheers. I thought he meant Chaser, which I’m only aware of because I’ve seen advertising for that product; but no, apparently Cheers is even more powerful at blocking the boozed-up blotto effect.

So he’s basically laced his life with on-hand supplies of Cheers tablets: He’s bought God-knows-how-many and stashed them in his coat pockets, his girlfriend’s purses, his office desk, his car, etc. All for the purpose of ensuring that, should the sudden impulse to knock back a few hit no matter where, he can drug up beforehand to prevent a hangover from setting in.

While I admire all the diligent pre-planning in the name of spontaneous merriment, I had to note that maybe, just maybe, this guy’s got bigger problems than experiencing the throb of a hangover…
