...being an occasional series of insights and suggestions for a better life.
Should it come to pass that you find yourself going out, one monday night, for pizza with friends; and should it happen that you drink half a bottle of red wine and two grappas over dinner; and should it further happen that at around midnight (knowing that you have a long hard day of work ahead of you on the tuesday, including deadlines and things which cannot be postponed) a friend offers you a lift home, here is my advice:
go home. go to bed. sleep soundly. wake up in the morning ready to work.
do not, I repeat DO NOT, under any circumstances, head off into town to meet another friend and drink not 1, not 2, but 5 and a half pints of lager (less the quantity you may or may not have chosen to pour down your silk skirt). Be wise, my friends, and learn from me that breakfast, dinner, lunch and tea are all the human frame requires, and large quantites of lager in the middle of the night are wholly unnecessary and indeed ill-advised.
