On Monday, as I came back from a doctors appointment we ran into our new and apparently temporary mailman. It turns out he’s an old acquaintance. He’s the ex-boyfriend of one of the guys that I work with in the ER.
We’ve had the two over to our house several times, but since I’ve been stuck at home sick I hadn’t seen either of them for quite a while. Talking to M about the get togethers we’d had in the past got me thinking about his ex’s strange drinking habits.
You see, B, as I’ll call him, used to enjoy drinking a concoction that was half beer and half Clamato juice! I can’t remember if I ever dared to even have a sip. Doesn’t that just sound awful!
Other than getting some extra vitamins from the Clamato juice the only benefit that I can think of to drink such a thing would be that it would make a great hang over preventer, or if you drank it the morning after a night of partying it could probably be considered one of those wild hangover cures because I’m sure all the salt in the Clamato juice must help prevent dehydration while drinking, and it’s the dehydration the morning after that usually makes you feel so awful.
I don’t tend to drink all that much these days, but if I ever do over do it, perhaps I’ll try B’s mix the day after and see if it helps.
What crazy hangover cures have you come across or tried?
