Twas the Night before…


I could have used my breathalyser to analyse my blood alcohol content. Would you believe that working for a breathalyser company, which stock Australia’s largest range of hand held, personal, industrial and wall mounted breathalyzers (American, random?) I might have taken my fuel cell breathalyser with me when out for drinks with my mates. It would have been handy, even though I only consumed two cocktails, it went straight to my head.. heres a recount…

 

I was out at a bar last night in Richmond, Firstly being blown away by the fact that a cocktail cost me $23, secondly by the swift effect the alcohol had over my motor skills. Being flat out here all day, I did not have lunch, and managed to squeeze in a Mars bar for dinner (although this is not my usual diet, desperate times call for desperate measures). I drove to Richmond practically on an empty stomach, had two beautiful cocktails, over about an hour with some friends, nothing too over the top. I stood up to pay my tab, only to realise that I felt light headed and a little ‘off centre’ so I sat down again. Luckily for me this bar served tappas and was able to purchase some food and chill out a little longer.

Not drinking often or in huge amounts it is easy to forget how quickly alcohol can effect you under certain circumstances, needless to say that last night I should have eated something, should have maybe waited a little longer after tappas, and maybe should have taken my breathalyser with me. Next time.
