Impossible hangover

Is it possible to be hungover without having actually imbibed any alcohol?

It clearly must be, because I have a pounding headache, aching body, nausea, miserable liver, and yet I had no alcohol yesterday  or today. Whatsoever. This makes no bloody sense.

Other people at least get to have some fun before they have the consequences. Hmm. Maybe I caught someone’s hangover. Maybe some evil bastard drank like the devil and passed his hangover on to me. Like a cold.

The last time I drank even a smidgin of alcohol happened to coincide with my deciding to eat sausages that had been in my freezer for over a year. Don’t ask. It seemed like a good idea at the time, when I was starving. I threw up for a day and a half, and now my measly brain associates that terribleness with alcohol, when in fact I hadn’t drunk enough to make a monkey feel funky. So I cannot really tolerate alcohol at the moment anyway.

I don’t quite understand what I am being punished for right now, but it has something to do with the fact that we lost the cricket to England. I spent the whole of yesterday in Leeds in somewhat icy conditions watching us lose, and now I am hungover. My scientific brain sees the glaring rule of cause and effect right there. The English crowd were, well, pissed; are English crowds at sporting events not pissed by definition? Maybe I am hungover off of their fumes.

Going to go curl up in a ball now and moan softly.

    Poor Po! May you feel un-hungover again very soon! And by the way? If it’s any consolation? I was soooo hungover on Thursday morning, even my hair hurt… But I deserved to feel like that, because I actually made an effort to party on Wednesday night. Doesn’t take much, though, because despite being built like an SUV, I’m remarkably light on ‘fuel’…
