You must have your poor missus constantly corrected.

It’s usually the other way around in a marriage pal

Every time I fell asleep last nite I woke up in a start, to the sound of the front door knocking. Not the regular knocking, those slow deliberate knocks that tells you that opening the door would not be a good idea. 4 nightmares in the space of 2/3 hours, drowned with sweat and afraid. The last time i was in that state I was plugged into a morphine drip for 10 days.

I presume you weren’t at work today?


#2565

I’m facing that tomorrow


#2566

Bed early tonight. You’ll be grand

Used to suffer badly from the DTs in my mid 20s. Had some really fucked up , scary dreams of a Monday night.


#2568

I don’t miss those. Like being an extra on the set of The Omen at times.

I’m off out for a 2 mile walk now with my eldest daughter, in the middle of a hurricane. It’ll surely banish the last of the fear.
Have to bring the young one with me as I’ve too many pubs to pass and I’ve resisted the urge from 12:00pm today to go cure myself as it’s really only kicking the can down the road.

A good friend of mine is a kerryman who has no off-switch when he goes on a tear. After a long weekend in tralee for the rose he told us that his worst moment was seeing a rat come through the lock on the bedroom door with a bale of hay on his back.

We regularly remind him of it but it has not stopped his love for alcohol.

Can you get him to sketch that one for us?


#2572

I prefer to think of it as gently putting the brakes on a runaway horse


#2573

A lovely chap. He puked into his pint one night in Flannery’s, I think and he drank it all up.


#2574

I saw a lad do that in the King’s Head one night

Different mutual friend but I like the way you’re thinking.


#2577

I did not see that. There are a lot of stories on him but I can’t win with him over the night the Guards rescued me form the hedge.


#2578

I had a bad Southern Comfort experience with him one night.


#2579

Southern comfort is a bad experience anyway


#2580

Didn’t we all?

He nearly killed me that particular night. It was around my 21st birthday.
