The after effects of playing badminton : Prashant Mendiratta

Ofcourse one would say that you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and in general happy after a hard game of badminton. Sometimes a game of badminton shows you interesting stuff that you least expected. Few days ago; on our way back home after few hard games of badminton in which I lost 2 and won 2 ( so the score is even here); I suggested that we stop over for a small drink. Idea was to pour a miniature each in a glass of diet coke, crack jokes before getting back some. So we stopped at a liquor store and bought a quart of absolut vodka. In the past also we have got together for a pint of beer and some gupshup  and these have been a short and uneventful nothing to write about outings .



I guess sometimes hard liquor plays tricks on people and we kind of went on a roller coaster ride of fun and frolic after finishing the quart. A friend suggested that evening is just warming up and so let us have some more. So this is when it all started what I would call as hangover part 3 for 3 of us. So we went on from one quart to another and then to a full bottle. The main protagonist; a rather cute and interesting person started recounting some interesting events from his past and we all shared funny instances that we have lived.

Woke up next day on a weekend with a funny hangover and  did not play as some of us conveniently reported sick.

Finally played yesterday and relived the experience by narrating it to a partner who was missing on the night out.

Looking back; i would say that there is more to life than drinking silly and hopefully will go to starbucks next time we decide to get together after a hard game of badminton.
