A Little Hair of the Dog – From Around the World!
With the holidays upon us, the promise of spiked egg nog, mulled wine, and “that punchy stuff that Bubba brought” is in the offing. It isn’t a stretch to believe that some amongst us might over-imbibe, so today’s Observations from the Tub brings you ten hangover cures from around the world. These include Sparrow Droppings in Brandy (Hungary), Pickled Sheep Eyeballs in Tomato Juice (Mongolia), and the ever popular Dried Bull’s Penis (Sicily). Here ya go, Buttercup! Enjoy!
Hey, this is a public service, folks. I’m just happy to be of help.
My most memorable hangover cure story comes from my bachelorette party three days prior to my wedding. My Alpha Delta Pi sorority sisters took me out and got me hammered. The morning after, my dad handed me a concoction and said, “Hold your nose and drink up, kid.” I did, and upchucked everything I’d eaten in the last six months. After things settled down and my skin turned from green back to pasty gray, I did begin to feel better. No idea what was in the Daddy Brew—it was deadly, but effective.
What’s your most memorable hangover cure? Don’t tell me you don’t have one. I won’t believe ya. 😉
Have a great weekend, y’all. See you Monday for Pawsitive Pondering!
