In honor of my hungover friends today. Enjoy!
“Holy…where am I?”
If you’ve ever woken up and said that, most likely your next thought is the realization that you’ve got a hangover.
Now, usually the best way to cure a hangover is to avoid it – drink lots of water before, during and after your party time – but you don’t want to hear that right now, do you? Your liver just declared a jihad against you, and something crawled into your mouth and died there. You need relief.
The key is: GREASE. But it must be said that I have a different hangover cure depending on where I wake up – and by that I mean what country. When I’ve woken up and said, “Holy…where am I?” the answer is usually given to me in a language other than my own.
To avoid further confusing your gin-soaked minds, I’m going to give you my cures in pictures – these are my own, except for New York and Barcelona; the cheery location pictures were taken the day before while strolling around, and the food pictures taken the following morning in a haze of alcohol withdrawal and loathing.
PARIS = CROQUE MADAME; NUTELLA CREPES.
ROME = POLENTA, HOT PEPPERS.
LONDON = BACON SARNIES; SCONES.
NEW YORK = BACON EGG AND CHEE.
VENICE = CICCHETTI; HAIR OF THE DOG.
BARCELONA = PIG SANDWICH; HAIR OF THE DOG.
Feel free to print this out for your next vacation; then you can just hold your head and point to the picture, and a waiter will bring you what your body needs to get back on track and catch that flight back home.
So true! You need a hangover cure that is country specific! My personal all round cure is chugging some Pepto-Bismol (which I need shipped from the US these days) and eating a Egg McMuffin. Def saving this!
