Why I won't be drinking tequila this weekend...

Seeing as it my 26th Birthday tomorrow. Yes, I know how horrifying to finally be on the bad side of 25. But who doesn't really enjoy celebrating a birthday? Well the point of all this is to explain, as previously mentioned, why I will not be drinking Tequila this weekend.

(<--- this photo may not be nice, but it is accurate)
It all goes back to my 21st birthday. My aunt(not really my aunt but somehow related) decided to come over the night before my birthday with a bottle of Jose Cuervo and some cards. We sat around a table, there may have been 4 or 5 of us and proceeded to play what I think may have been Asshole or some similar card game. Needless to say I am a terrible game player(happens everytime) and I paid dearly for it. Within a 2 hour period I had 13 shots of tequila while sitting in the same spot. Let me tell you that if this story sounds a bit vague that is because I can not really recall everything that happened. I know there was an incident while trying to get me to the restroom in which I was dropped and hit my head. I know that I passed out on the floor in the living room with 7 minutes to midnight. These are the things I know about that night. I will tell you something I can recall with perfect clarity, the mother of all hangovers that I had the next two days. I have never, not since, not before, had a hangover quite as bad as that time. Believe me I have had plenty of opportunities to experience hangovers.

That being said, it has been 5 years and I have yet to be able to smell tequila without a nasty feeling in my stomach and recalling the awful feelings I had after. Occasionally, once drunk, I will be dumb enough to take a shot or two of it anyway and I always, and I mean ALWAYS pay the price. So this year on my 26th birthday you can count on the fact that I will be drinking some vodka, or rum, or whiskey but not tequila.

I hope your birthday was amazing! I wish I had been there to take a VODKA shot with you!
