First of all if I’m not going to work on Monday, hell if I’m going to work here. So it’s Tuesday this is your Hangover.
Friday after work I met Commando, and The German for some beers and some pizza. So after a few we left, Commando gave me the what for, and told me to come out on Friday, at that point I was like “Meh” I don’t really want to. I went home rested a bit, RJ starts texting me wanting me to come out, then I get a call from Torino. He told me he was coming out…I was like ok….ok…ok already I’m coming out.
I went out started at JWH, nice crowd there, and some of my favorite bartenders were working. All the usual crew were there, even Tallegdega was there…and that was our downfall. Tallegdega and me went toe to toe with shots, at one point Tallegdega almost puked. From there I went to Teehans, it was quite dead. Then to Durbins, it was dead too, but at least I saw some of my friends that work there. Tallegdega met me up at Durbins, then finally we both ended up at Kickoffs.
Saturday I usually do chores for my Mother, her being handicapped and all. Let me tell you I was dragging ass. So I was walking out of the Tobacco store, and I hear a voice. It was the devil himself, “River!” Ugh, I look….”Your so drunk you started to smoke?” It was worse than the devil, it was Torino. He then goes, “Lets grab one at Chicago Blu” A bar near there…..”Sure I say, but JUST ONE” After a little more than a bucket of beers, and a few shots, I have to admit I was kinda snookered. So I finally left the bar to finish my errands, let’s just say I ate the hell out of some free samples that day. After the errands, I grabbed a bite to eat, and stopped by Jackass, and chatted a bit. Then I went home and watched a DVD to rest up for Sunday.
Sunday – I had off Monday, and today the Penquins play the Blackhawks. So I went to the Hockey game with Towelie, his brother-in-law, Jackass, and Tallegdega. I wore a light blue Penquins hat to show my allegience, but being the Hawks fans my friends are, I took alot of heat from it. I think the adventure began when we did a shot of Jagermeister at the Stadium. Our original seats were kind of nosebleed, but they were still decent. About second period Jackass disappeared, Tallegdega and I went to find him. We found him alright, outside in the smoking section, talking to all the chicks. Ugly, pretty, young, or old, it didn’t matter to Jackass he would talk to them all. Even fart on them, Jackass let one rip on this poor girl. At one point Tallegdega and I would start screaming at Jackass when he would stop to talk to random people, “Dad!, Let’s go Dad!” At 3rd period, Tallegdega, and Jackass weaseled some center rink ice seats were so awesome I almost wept. It was hilarious to see Tallegdega, and Jackass fight over the credit for the seats.
Then we hit the bars, even Commando, Torino, RJ, Muffdiver, and even Tallegdegas cousin, Ice, came out. Shot after shot we started pounding, and when the Absynthe came out I knew we were done for. Jackass was tore up, from the floor up. He was all over the place, lifting tables on his back, picking up Commando on his shoulders, breaking little stuff here and there. He disappeared, went to Durbins, then came back to JWH. I don’t think I seen him that rocked…well since the Friday before last. As drunk as he was, he didn’t do anything overly stupid like do the Worm with no hands. He finally went home…I hope. Me, Commando, and Torino had a serious talk about some of the bad things that linger in my life. I never said I was a good man, I am just a man. I hope they understand.
Tallegdega before he left asked me to bring him some biscuits in the morning, and I thought that was kind of weird, until I went to leave. He filled my coat pockets with Bisquick. It was pretty nasty, but I had to laugh. Though it’s one thing I’m good at, and that’s payback. He wanted biscuits, I got him some. I got him an order of biscuits and gravy, with a ton of extra gravy, from Olympic Star, and dumped it all on his car.
Monday - It was my Grandma’s 90th birthday. I spent the day with her. She is an amazing woman, tough as nails. I have learned so much from her. If you have ever invited me over, and I brought you a bottle of wine. You can thank her. She told me when invited over I should bring something, then I will be invited or again. Little nuggets of wisdom she dispensed on me, like she once told me, “Since you’re twice as big as everyone, you have to be twice as clean” She use to pick me up every Tuesday like clockwork when I was a child, and do things with me like fishing, or pick dandelions. She would then cook them up. LOL! Happy Birthday Grandma.
