PRE XMAS SHENANIGANS AFOOT…

“What I don’t like about office Xmas parties is looking for a job the next day

Phyllis Diller

Spoiler alert…Xmas may be overrated…mmm…

Welcome to the “Silly Season” where once again invites to work parties and “old friend” catch-ups appear to quadruple on a daily basis – these soirées may involve over imbibing of high octane punch and cocktails (buoyed on by the inferred festive nature of it all!) that may ultimately end up with your best mate’s head hovering over a toilet bowl, followed later by the   cockie’s-cage-mouth, a cataclysmic headache, self-hatred (…what did I say…) and a recalcitrant liver that refuses (point blank) to process the mélange of toxins ingested.

Grumpy QC asks why does Xmas have to be a “premeditated time” for socialising with “friends” when there are 11 months of the year with empty diaries that could be filled in with happy memories not clouded by the…”OMG…it’s Xmas Party Time…I might get hammered… but doesn’t everybody…”.

Ahhh the freedom I now have…being able to drink (alcohol removed) wine that tastes good and still give me the dopamine hit without compromising my health.

I can be part of all the above – albeit as an observer of some booze-induced behaviour (which can be hilarious and sad all at the same time)…

I know I keep banging about this but it’s a story worth telling…

Happy Holidays from QC….

P.S. A big hello from Eric the echidna – social media assistant & model.
