Hangover Costs

Maybe you’ve been there. You had just one too many the night before and you are sitting at work thinking (or trying to think), about how much time you can spend in the bathroom without anyone becoming suspicious about you being away from your desk. And maybe you’re nodding off a little bit because alcohol does this really funny thing to you, which is jolts you awake at 5:30 in the morning even though you had just closed your eyes three hours before. It’s because of something called the “rebound effect.” You know that because you had trouble going back to sleep so you Googled it on your smartphone. Anyway, you’re going to just do your best for the next six hours and pray that you don’t vomit into the wastebasket. I’m never doing that again, you tell yourself. It’s a lie. It’s all lies today.
