Tie One On Tuesday

Oh my aching head! You know the feeling. You went out, had a few drinks after work, met a cutie, did some dancing, had some more drinks, did some smooching and now you wake up and you feel like you got hit by a Mack truck-driven by Mr. T-who by the way was yelling, "I pity the fool" in your ear. Well, never fear my little drunk monkeys! I have the cure for you!

Let me just get this out of the way-HA HA! You have a hang over! Okay, now on to the cures.

First-you need sleep and lots  of it! Rest and sleep will give your body time to recover and allow the alcohol to work through your system.

Drink lots and lots of water and vitamin C. The water flushes out your system and the vitamin C stimulates the liver to break down the alcohol.

Try not to take aspirin or Tylenol. The side effects of these two pills only magnify the alcohol in your system and we really don't want you more drunk and in more pain. Plus, aspirin can upset your tummy!

Bananas are one of the quickest ways to cure a hangover. The best way to do this is to make a  a banana milkshake sweetened with honey. The banana helps calm the stomach, and with the honey, builds up the depleted blood sugar levels. The milk soothes the stomach and rehydrates your system. Bananas are also rich in the important electrolytes, magnesium and potassium, which are severely depleted during heavy drinking.

I swear by a good greasy breakfast. Bacon, eggs and toast or a cheeseburger will fix you right up.

So, there are a few little treatments to get you back in the saddle and ready to hit the dance floor for another night, but please, for the love of all things holy-this time-leave your clothes on.

While dispensing great advice you are making me giggle!! Thanks! Back in my party days we swore by a late night Waffle House breakfast. Usually woke up feeling pretty good!
